And send him on his way...

I've been seized by the need for washcloths. I'd like some more for the bathroom as I hate showering with anything else. Also, Mum wants a few as gifts.

Washcloth for Renate who gave me some very beautiful yarn recently and who's feeling a bit blue. Actually this is an old pic - Renate's washcloth was apricot but I forgot to take a photo. The pattern's the same, though - my own chevron lace washcloth in Milford Knitting Cotton, 6ply on 3.75mm needles.

Then two of the same in navy for myself.
There was an old 2oz ball of Milford Knitting Cotton hanging around. Two washcloths out of one ball with less than 1m of yarn to spare.


While I was on a roll, this in one strand of Patons Gem 4ply and 1 strand of Milford Knitting Cotton 4ply on 3.75mm needles. The pattern is Kitchen Cotton.

Lovely. My grandchildren are over for the night - because their Mum is in Emergency with probably appendicitis. Anyhow - they love to shower at Nanny's with their wash cloths.

Got to go back to Calvary now to see how their Mum is. I suspect she in in for some surgery - been in pain since Saturday morning silly girl.

I used my new face cloth today. Some people I know poohpooh them, so it is nice to share a love for them!!! Very nice indeed!!!

Janet - sorry to hear about your daughter. Fingers crossed for her.

2paw - I was a knitted cloth detractor. Then I used one. Now I prefer them to anything else.

Well it is the morning after, and no surgery needed (thank God). However, it is nearly one washcloth finished, waiting till 1.00am, and then going home for a sleep, going back at 4.00am to pick her up again. Two grandies slept on the sofas last night like little angels.

Washcloths are the PERFECT hospital knitting. Glad there was no need for surgery.

Taph, I thought I had sated my cloth addiction for now (after a dozen in 3 weeks)....but now Im itching to start these patterns! Not fair! Curses! (shakes fist at screen)

Yay you - great hats, great washcloths! Busy busy busy (My time is taken by the bag swap at present - travelling knitting is stuff for that - should all be done by the end of the week!) Hurrah - and back to bella!

George - it's only fair - if I hadn't gone looking for cotton for someone on a washcloth kick I wouldn't have found the odd balls that didn't make it to you.

Tink - I think some of this is avoiding the several hundred rows of garter stitch I need to do to finish my bagswap.

I'm with George. I thought I'd slowed down on the dishcloths but nope, you just got me all fired up again!
