LIve from Chicago, its Saturday Niiiiiiiiiight!


I finished the dishrag. I'm not about to make another anytime soon.. I Love the result. But, oh all those knit 2 togethers made my wrists absolutely stiff. Cotton and I don't get along on the needles. Next to my skin, cotton and I are great together. On the needles, I do remember now, cotton and I don't mix. Also this involved a ton of counting....
rag rag rag
yes dishrag..

THe yarn is Lily's Sugar and Creme. THe pattern is Doily Style Dishcloth designer unknown.
Rating Medium. That's their rating. I rate it difficult for the above tension reasons....

I think I need to find a crochet pattern for a dishcloth and fall in love with it. Any ideas my fellow crocheters???

I am off to work now. I got the first 4 hours of my shift off tonight. Yippee only 8 hours in the night. Is it morning yet?

Beautiful dish cloth! I love the round ones. I only have one but I noticed that I grab it out of the drawer before the square cloths.

Happy short work night!!

Seems to me there is a crochet cloth pattern I like. Remind me, or search my Ravelry projects page...

It is VERY cute, but I know what you mean. I didn't used to have these issues (achy wrists and fingers)back when I was, you know .....
younger.

I really have to space out my cotton knitting so I don't get all cramped up.

Great job! Do I foresee some lacy shawl knitting in your future?

I agree that cotton yarn doesn't "give" as much as other yarns, so it creates achy hands and wrists.

That's one really pretty dishcloth! Did you do it on dpns? I get achy fingers when knitting too much also, but even worse when I crochet!? Weird, huh? How's little B doing? Such a cute kitty!

I found the yarn brand I Love This Cotton from Michael's and it's wonderful to work with. K2Tog are not a problem with it!

Great job! I'm expecting the box from our team tomorrow!

I'm extremely late with this...but my favorite crochet dishcloth is simple. You crochet a chain as long as you want ( I normally make mine big enough for the hand of the person using it from wrist to tip of longest finger) then crochet around . It with turn back on itself and I slip stick up the center when it touches. If I'm feeling really daring.....at the end I will crochet a chain of 7 or 10 and slip stitch it to itself so I can hang it from a peg if I want to. I've made it with both cotton and acrylic. I love it. :) Just thought I would throw that thought out there.
