You have to keep doing them constantly.
-Mary Wells Lawrence
Just like the dishes keep piling up (incredible, that!), so do the dish rags. Here's the latest stashbuster. (Which would be why the white white white is so very tonally unrelated to the rest. Stashbusting.)
Ballband the Second
Pattern: Mason-Dixon Knitting Ballband Dishcloth
Yarn: odd oddballs of Kitchen Cotton and Sugar and Cream
Needles: US 7 Susan Bates aluminum
Notes: I rarely use my aluminum straight needles, but when I'm making dishcloths it just seems right. I think it's a retro thing.
Best Thing About This Project: Feeling virtuous on so many levels: knitting from the stash (and the oddball stash at that!), using the knitting, and - amazingly enough - doing dishes!
So I know these are a dime-a-dozen around blogland these days, but why are we all still using standard unmercernized cotton? When are people going to start branching out into the novelty yarns? Think of all the scrubbing power of nylon.
