more discloths

This was the mid-month knit-along, a design by Sharon Hoyt - Garter Striped Chevron dishcloth. It is also available on Ravelry. It will probably be a gift at some point. I added a pattern repeat within each larger repeat to lengthen the dishcloth a bit, mostly because I did on the first repeat, and just kept it even after that. I do like the slightly larger size though.

This is the second one I did using the Mixed Sherbet pattern:

It is a bit tighter than the previous version, and the colors go with my kitchen too.

Knitting cloth

With the demise of several of my dishcloths due to serrated knife damage, I am getting back into the dishcloth mode. Although only one of these will actually wash dishes (and hopefully not knives).

The first one of 2014 was a cloth from the Yahoo group monthly KAL, January 1st version of a Snowman. Done in white, it will not be used for dishes. Maybe a coaster for cookies?

The next two are from "More than a dozen dishcloths". I did Lemon Punch in Delft Blue, so perhaps it is a Blueberry Punch? This will be a face cloth.

And finally, Mixed Sherbet will be used for dishes. I think I should have used a smaller needle size, which I normally do since I knit loosely. I started another one in blue, cranberry and tan on the smaller needles, and like it better for a dishcloth.
