My Favorite So Far Maybe

I loved the last one, the petal dishrag. But I may love this one more.

That may be because I have a completely irrational, deeply abiding love for all things kiwi green.
I learned how to bind off in purl stitch with this one. A small skill but one I didn't have. And I got much better at lifting the first stitch over the last two. I was pretty clumsy with that technique on the last project. Much better after this one. It was fast and fun and easy, and I never growled through the entire project.

So now all that's left is to pick my next one. Because I'm not the least bit tired of them yet.

ooh so pretty but just looking at those knitting books makes my hands hurt! of course i was up past midnight last night doing some computer art - that doesn't help much. and i can relate to your love of kiwi green ;)

congrats on the house sale too.

Oh no. I spotted one of your birthday presents, one I searched really hard for and finally found, in that last photo. Sigh. Back to the drawing board.

I didn't know you loved kiwi green. What a sweet dishcloth. These are the perfect things for you to be working on right now, when you have so much going on.

You know what I love about you? You never do anything halfway :)

I like it!!! Every time I see a new pattern I get excited. I just printed out the waffle patterned one. They are a great way to get more proficient.
I've been knitting for more years than I care to think about, but I'm now trying to teach myself to knit continental style. I am all thumbs right now, but I'm determined to learn because I think it's faster!

I love those colors. And that book in the front is mine exactly. I just keep using the same ones over and over. My book is getting a bit ratty.

Ring, Ring! Sarah! Pot calling the kettle black. :)

I lurve the newest dishcloth. Looks all gooshy, if that's a word.

As soon as I finish my decluttering for the day, I'm going to treat myself to some knitting.

Dishcloths are the perfect projects for learning new knitting skills. The yarn is cheap, and the project is small. Plus, even if it doesn't come out great, it will still wash dishes.

Yours is very pretty! :-)
