Dishcloth Confession

Confession time:   Until recently, I’d never successfully knit a dishcloth from the classic Grandma’s dishcloth pattern. I’d tried, but for reasons I’m not completely sure of, I just had a mental block about it. I went on to knit other successful projects. I became completely obsessed with the garterlac dishcloth. I loved the pattern and after knitting dozens and…

Here Fishy Fishy

One of the things on my knitterly bucket list has been to try test knitting. The process of how patterns are developed intrigues me.

I love the look of cable hats but I’ve not knit…

Valentine’s Day Dishcloth

It was pretty clear heading into the weekend we would likely be facing some sort of snow day on Monday. By Sunday night blizzard warnings were up and the province (at least the southern part) shut down. With that in mind, it seemed like a good chance to knock out another dishcloth.   The Knit Picks pattern this week was…
