Because it feels like a dishrag around here
I felt compelled to knit one. And because I have always thought the Mason-Dixon ball-band was impressive!
Good thing I did not enter DishRagTag this year. I was not a fast dishrag knitter. This one took a few days. As in 4 days. Average days when I pick up my needles as I can. In between the nonknitting parts of my life (oh yes there are parts!)
Let's see, October and November have 61 days. Lets say I knit half of them on dishcloths....that's 8 more dishcloths for gifts. Hypotheticals are fun. Dishcloths are fun too.
One of the main reasons I like this pattern is it is laceless. For all of you who love to knit lace, you have until midnight to enter Grace at Lovin Comfort Knits blog contest. Find a pretty FREE lace shawl pattern out there and leave it in comment on her blog. She is giving away an amazing shawl.
I think this dishcloth pattern belongs with my EASY AND IMPRESSIVE category. Right up there with Top Down raglans and socks. Any pair of straightforward socks with steal your heart away yarns. Do you have an easy and impressive favorite pattern? I'd love to compile a list. OH! Maybe I'll have a sidebar!
I'll talk to you in the comments. :)
