Oh, good grief, I’m off. It’s dishcloths dishcloths so many dishcloths, thanks to a little Bento Bag full of Rowan Handknit Cotton oddments that accumulated at Atlas and somehow found their way home with me.
I know, I know: our dishcloth knitalong doesn’t start until Friday, but what am I supposed to do? Not make dishcloths when the opportunity presents itself?
I’m on number ten. I’m doing the Ballband Dishcloth, easy peasy, 33 stitches cast on, two colors of Rowan Handknit Cotton, and nine rows of bricks later, I’m done.
The pattern is free and through a freak of the internet now lives on a website called Canadian Living, right here.
There’s not much else to say except: if you’ve never made a Ballband Dishcloth, and you’re wondering if it’s a fun thing to do, my answer is a loud and emphatic, caps-lock YES IT IS RIDICULOUS HOW FUN IT IS.
PS If you’re wondering about Kay’s latest scheme to get us all to knit dishcloths, read all about the upcoming Kitchen Sink-along right here. Starts this Friday. Prizes are in the offing. Gift knitting has never been this easy, just sayin.
