Just flew back from KC, where I had a pretty decent day and a half. I'd have called it good until I inadvertently poured my diet coke into my work bag (with my knitting) on the plane on the way home. Sigh. Some of my notes are looking a little less than pristine at the moment, but I was able to rescue both yarn and sock chunk without any damage. Phew!
And, as it happens, I've arrived just in time to participate in FO Friday (that's 3 in a row for me - a personal best!). It turns out that there are lots of pluses to knitting dish cloths. In no particular order...
They're super functional.
They're a quick and satisfying knit.
I get to play along with FO Friday more often when I knit small stuff.
Oh, and they're pretty stinkin' cute...
I'm also a little bit in awe of the amazing designs that are out there. My personal favorite dish cloth designer is Faerwear (who's also on Ravelry). I could totally knit a blanket out of those squares. But really, somewhere out there, there's a dish cloth design for just about anything. Must explore more.
Thus ends the dish cloth treatise. Are you a believer?
Happy Weekend, y'all!
ps. The Snoopy Dish cloth pattern is free here, and I knitted it up with Sugar and Cream cotton yarn, in case that's the sort of stuff that keeps you awake at night.
