No major knitting has been going on here. I'm busy with so many other things that I don't have the concentration for a long term knitting project. But I'm on the prowl for one. Have you seen Leslie's new sweater? Gorgeous! In the meantime, I've been working on knitting some dish cloths that will become gifts for family and friends. I started the Circle cloth on our way to Hilton Head and finished two of those. This was a very easy pattern. As I was knitting these up it was fun to watch the colors peek through the contrast color. I'm just not real happy with the side edges...they look kinda wonky. The second pattern I've been knitting is my new favorite. It is the Waffle Knit Dishcloth from Homespun Living. It's a classic. You could knit it in one solid color or add some stripes for contrast. I added stripes. This pattern is easy to memorize and I love the fabric that it produces. (My favorite blanket when I was a bitty girl was a waffle weave one) This pattern is fast and a great way to use up your leftovers. You can effectively put the stripes in wherever you want. I knit the yellow and white set up for a friend who just redid her kitchen. Two dishcloths and a container of nice kitchen hand soap makes for a great present. Both dishcloth patterns are free which makes them even better! Thanks to Hakucho and Deb! In between shucking corn, making pickled beets, cleaning out my boy's room to make room for new furniture, doing laundry from the beach and putting up green beans not much knitting is passing through these hands. Hopefully I'll get some sitting down time towards the end of the week. My grandma (who is 91) is coming to stay with us for a few days and I like to sit and visit with her.....she's got some great stories to tell. (never mind that you hear the same one over and over! LOL) So, while she spins her tales, I'll knit and listen. It'll probably be another dishcloth. I guess the two of us aren't really so different.
