I've Been Knitting....



.........just a bit,lol!




Seriously though, these dishclothes work up so quickly and are the best for washing dishes!

One of my favourite new patterns is a checkered one that I think looks best on solid yarn although I've also done it in a varigated yarn.



What do you think?




And in case you're a knitter, here's the pattern:

Checkered Dishcloth

Materials: 1 ball of cotton yarn, Size 4.5 MM knitting needles.

Instructions:

Cast on 40 stitches

Rows 1 - 5: P5, K5 across

Rows 6 - 10: K5, P5 across

Repeat rows 1 -10 four times, then repeat rows 1-9 once, bind off in pattern.

Perhaps I should try this as I think I may enjoy washing the dishes a bit more if I had a yummy cloth to look at.

What a fantastic idea. TFS

So, if I bring my supplies to 2 Friends next time I have a Friday evening free....you'll keep me on the straight and narrow if I begin the pattern?? I usually, beg borrow and/or 'steal' (not really)these from Mavis & Linda.
Love the squared ones!
