A set of three dishcloths, actually. The pattern is Double Bumps, which looks to me to be a variation of tile stitch. Very nice, I think. Although I like my very stripey version, I wouldn't recommend it ... unless you like sewing in ends. But it was stash-busting, and my intention was to make three the same but different, so ends it is.
Now that all three are done I'm left with less than 7 grams of brown handicrafter cotton. Maybe enough to add a stripe or two to another dishcloth? But that'll have to wait for another day. For now, I'm dishcloth-ed out. Knitting with cotton at a tight gauge is a bit wearing on my fingers. Time to go back to socks!
Thanks for all the good wishes. I brought Gavin home from the hospital this morning so that he can continue his recovery in more comfortable surroundings. The scar on his hip ugly - he gets the staples removed next week - but suffice it to say each day is better than the last. Now, I'd better get to work arranging that disabled parking permit ...
