recent knitting. March 28, 2010

Filed under: Anne — gallyfam @ 7:50 pm

i made some dishcloths for a couple different friends recently, and i’ve been waiting to post some photos until i made sure i wouldn’t ruin the surprise.  i have crocheted some dishcloths before, but never knitted any.  i started out by looking up free patterns online…  first i made several of the “basic knit dishcloth” and then, for fun, i tried a different pattern called the ball band dishcloth.  it takes longer to knit, but i just love it!  i’m making another right now, either to keep for myself and replace my dishcloth my mom made me years ago that unravels a bit more with each use, or to give to another friend.  it’s so fun to give away handmade gifts, but i might just have to keep this one for little ol’ me.  here are some photos:

"basic" pattern (you knit this one at a diagonal)

"ball band" dishcloth -- isn't it cute?

    The ball band cloths look great with that brightly-colored yarn! Well done. I might have to order-up a few of these!
