Dishcloth daze


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 ...

Glad all went well with Gavin. I'm sure he's MUCH more comfortable at home.

The stripey cloths are great. :-)

Glad everything went well. And after knitting those clothes - you deserve a nice pair of new socks on the needles! (I really like that solid brown cloth!)

I'm glad to hear Gavin is back home and recuperating each day.

I love these dishcloths! And wow to the stash busting!

I'm so glad your husband's surgery went well. I think a set of different dishcloths in the same colors is great.
