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.

These are really cute! Yay to busting stash!

I agree, the half finished Rav pictures trouble me, too. But this year is the first time I'm using Ravelry project pages, and it has gotten me into the habit of taking pictures of the finished project. When I think of all the projects I've finished with no photos, it makes me sad :(.

I'm always in such a rush to give things away I can forget pictures too! I love your stack of dishcloths. I was just searching Ravelry for a pattern to try and didn't find anything that I liked. THEN I saw your scrap ripple link--it is perfect. Thank you for sharing.

Alex's Cloth looks great in stripes. I'm sure Linda is going to just LOVE them too.

Congrats on the great stash busting.
