Spared from a horrible fate!
Well OK, that sounded good. I’ve never made one.
I chose a repetitive pattern that was fun to knit and looked pretty. While I was knitting, I decided that the yarn was too soft to use as a discloth, those get grungy so fast and it would bum me out too much to see my pretty knit get all funky in my scary kitchen. Instead, it’s my new washcloth. I never have used a washcloth so I guess you could say I actually needed one. I got the pattern online somewhere where there was a listing of hundreds of patterns. This one was attributed to an unknown designer but the pattern was easy. Here it is:
CO 39.Row 1: K2 *yo K3, pass first of the three over the next two stitches* repeat until last stich K1. Rows 2 and 4: Purl. Row 3: K1
*K3, pass the first of the three stitches over the next two, yo* repeat until the last two stitches, K2.
I took the photo with a couple really nice smelling soaps that I got at Maxwell Street Days, a huge sidewalk sale on our main downtown shopping street. Yummy.
I think I will make a bunch more for presents. The yarn, Lily Sugar and Cream 100% worsted weight cotton, was soft and smelled good, and was only $1.49 for 2.5 ozs. Pretty presents for cheap! That makes me smile.
And since I love shoes, here is a picture of a pair of Dansko Mary Janes that I picked up at Maxwell Street Days. I used to think Danskos were utterly fug, but I have slowly revised that stance over the years. I wore them to work on Saturday and Oh my, they were so comfortable. I forgive them their fugness.
I also finished my secret project. I love it and have had a ball wearing it. I’ll get pictures up soon.
Happy Summer Days!
