As I mentioned in my last blog post, I noticed that my grandmother's homemade dishcloths were falling apart and she needed a few new ones. Truthfully I doubt she needs my help, she's quite an accomplished knitter on her own- but I thought it might be a nice "thank you" gift if I sent her a couple. (And okay, it was a perfect opportunity to start busting the immense amounts of crafter cotton I somehow have!) And so, I took a brief pause in my frantic blanket knitting... and knit some dishclothes.
#1- Young Love
Pattern: Young Love Dishcloth by Rachel van Schie
Yarn: Lily Sugar'n Cream Cotton in "Sunshine"
Needle: US size 6
Pattern Thoughts: Grandma is going to love this- it's just so adorable! The pattern really pops on this so there are no worries about her seeing what it is. The pattern author was excellent- I would definately make more of her patterns!
#2 & #3 - BALLBANDS! Is there any knitter ot there that doesn't love this pattern?
Ballband Dishcloth as published in Mason Dixon Knitting
Yarn: Lily Sugar'n Cream Cotton in "Sunshine", "Cornflower", "Country Twists" and "Rose Twists"
Needle: US size 7
Pattern Thoughts: I love making these! I love mixing the colors and I'm always pleased with the way they turn out.
Hopefully Grandma will like her little care package I'm sending her. Would you be happy opening this up?
