And there’s more….

As I mentioned yesterday, I was on a little bit of a washcloth kick, and its not over yet!

After the scrappy cloths, I went back to a pattern and this time it was double bump which I knitted before years ago as Christmas presents. I never did get any comments on whether they were a nice gift or not, but its a simple pattern and knitted as per the instructions. Despite the yarn being aran weight and not worsted, its a fairly decent size.


Following the patterned cloth, I wanted something mindless so made up my own. To be fair, you can’t really concentrate on a pattern when NCIS is on now, can you?


This was swiftly followed by my own personal washcloth pattern hell. This is the second time I’ve knitted this cloth and the second time I’ve made a right mess of it.  It’s not hard, not in the slightest, but I just can’t get it.  The cloths are robust, sturdy and firm. They’re fantastic. But for the life of me I just seem to get it wrong every time. I will try again….. just not yet.

The name of my current nemesis? Chinese waves dishcloth.


In the above photo you can just make out near the top where its not quite right…. and again near the bottom of the photo. Some”thing” went wrong and continued to be wrong for a while and then, quite suddenly, fixed itself again. That “thing” is my brain. I’m sure I’ll get me head around this simple pattern eventually. I’ve plenty more rico cotton to try!
