FO: A Dishcloth!

It's my very first dishcloth, knit for the Dishrag Tag! I completed it in less than 24 hours (I'm not sure how much actual time was spent knitting, but I started at 7pm on Friday, and finished at 7am on Saturday.)

The dishrag tag was fun, and even though I knew our team didn't stand a chance against much speedier knitting teams, I still wanted to be fast. It was a fun dishcloth to knit (I don't know how to link to the pattern, but it's on the Dishcloth Boutique in the sidebar), and I really liked how the yarn made pretty stripes, which were much richer than they appear in the photos. I was almost sad to send it off, it was so nice, but luckily I didn't spend enough time with it to get too attached. :)

I see why knitters like dishcloths--(almost) instant gratification, and you get to knit up nifty looking things! I think I'll try my hand at a few more in the future. Plus, they make nice gifts.

I'm now gearing up for ISE5...and so is Secret Knitter. Better sign up quick if you want to get in on the action!

You do realize that it's too pretty to be a dishcloth right? :)

Looks great! What kind of yarn did you use?

I understand the impulse to say the dishcloth is too pretty, but that drives me crazy when I give them away. No, you're supposed to use it! :)
