this free pattern sheet for a Snowflake Dishcloth while browsing the yarn aisles at Michael's or Len's Mill. Looked pretty cute in the picture so I thought I'd give it ago. But I've stopped and frogged before even completing the final round. One thing's for sure - there must have been some serious blocking to make that dishcloth look so pretty in the pattern photo! Theirs looks much sturdier, it lays flat and their picots uniformly point in the correct direction. Who blocks a dishcloth? Seriously?!
Of course it doesn't help that I was using natural colour cotton from my stash rather than the bright white they recommend. Looks rather like the grubby snow that accumulates at roadsides several days after a snowfall, doesn't it? Not nice at all.
Never mind. I think I'll go back to knitting socks now.
