Stashbusted, that is! A few weeks ago I heard from someone looking for acrylic yarn for making toys, and I thought, aha, this is an opportunity for me to give away a whole bunch of stuff that I wasn't sure what I was ever going to do with. And while sorting through my stash to pack up the colourful acrylic oddments she was after, I came across a largish skein of Handicrafter cotton in a white/denim blue variegated colourway.
Dishcloths! Five identical dishcloths using Grandmother's Favorite Dishcloth pattern. I've knit a variety of dishcloth patterns, but so far this is one of the easiest and the most fun to knit. It's also the most practical and durable - it's the everyday dishcloth at our house. But with five dishcloths completed and the skein completely knit up, I've exhausted my urge for quick and mindless knitting. Back to the Heartland Lace Shawl, and this time I mean it!
