a stack of dishcloths
Our accountant, Linda, works with us one day a week - Tuesdays - and two weeks ago she asked if I could knit dishcloths. Absolutely, I agreed enthusiastically. After all it's a great stash bust, and let's not forget that Linda prepares the paycheques. So this morning I assembled my little stack of dishcloths to take to work. And then it occurred to me: I don't have a final photo for my Ravelry project page.
This happens a lot, doesn't it? Project pages showing half a sock, or a sweater without button bands, and so on. I guess as soon as something's done I'm in a big rush to deliver it. Excitement, maybe? Or in some cases procrastination because I'm down to the very last minute? Whatever the case these unfinished photos annoy me every time I scroll through my Ravelry projects. After all, it only takes a minute, right?
So there it is in all its glory. My finished stash-busting stripey dishcloth based on this pattern inspired by this blog post. As for the rest of my dishcloth cotton scraps, I'm considering some scrap ripple cloths. Hopefully they'll be enough to cure me of my urge to make an entire ripple blanket.
