Brooklyn Bathroom

Well, it suddenly occurred to me that my Secret Pal must be utterly bored with my blog, seeing as how I haven't updated it in a week! So, I thought I would post a picture of my dishcloth progress, and then it occurred to me that I should just finish it! So, I watched some bad, very bad television and finished my dishcloth.

This dishcloth was made over 60 stitches in plain garter stitch. The ADD Knitter asked if I had seen the dishcloths in the new Mason-Dixon Knitting book, and indeed I have and yes, they are gorgeous and I am looking forward to getting that book and knitting those up. When I first started dreaming of knitting, I used to read the Mason-Dixon Knitting blog like crazy, and it's wonderful to see so many of the designs they dreamed up in a book.

And Leslie, I totally applaud you for joining every KAL that you feel like. When I do get that Mason-Dixon Knitting book, I intend to join the Mason-Dixon KAL. Very exciting.

Next time, when I tell myself that I need to knit something simple, I'll remember how very tedious I found this particular garter-stitch dishcloth project. I did enjoy the instant gratification, however, so I suppose there is a trade-off.

What I like about living in Brooklyn is that there are always flowers for sale and it only takes a little ity bitty ounce of creativity to brighten up your life and what might otherwise be drabby decor. I think my other ball of Sugar 'n Cream will look just at home in my Brooklyn bathroom.

By the way, I just found out that Sugar 'n Cream is not Peaches 'n Cream, which I'm guessing is supposed to be the superior dishcloth yarn. I didn't mind the Sugar 'n Cream, but I did wonder why it wasn't as decadent as other knitters made it out to be.

I think you are trying to hint at something, but i just can't put my finger on it. Could it be that you want that book??? Expect a package the 1st week of june. I made something pretty.

Nothing like bad tv to move a knitting project along! Along similar lines I have been watching lame romantic comedies late at night and have made tremendous progress on my socks because of it...Nice dish cloth, so cheery and bright!
