Dishcloth Square Blocks

Meet Dishcloth Square Blocks. Or at least, that’s what I’m calling him. He’s #2 in what seems to be a weekly series of dishcloth patterns, being designed by Anne. He’s done in Lion Cotton Red, with #7 straight needles, in my very Continental method. You can find the pattern here, but be sure to note the contest rules for both cloths.

And don’t worry. He’s not going to live on the tree. The Knight has already claimed him as his own, and I suspect that before the sun sets, DSB will have been called into action.

I was impressed with the Lion Cotton. It was soft! I’ll have to see if I can’t find some more, since I don’t recall where I picked up this ball, but I do remember that it was the only color they offered…

Now, what next?? You’re not going to get to see Amanda’s socks while she’s on vacation. That just doesn’t feel right. If she was here to taunt – er, make that see them herself – that might be different, but since she’s out in the middle of the ocean enjoying some alone time with her beloved, I think the socks will just quietly head north on Monday, and you can pop over to her blog for a shot of the finished pair. I *NEED* to start on my Sock it to Me pal’s socks, but her yarn won’t be here until next week. I am going to send my pal a little package next week too, but the socks obviously won’t be included. I guess that forces me to figure out what I’m going to knit for my tea swap pal, huh?

    I’m still stuck on my tea pal’s knitted gift, too. Hmmm….

    Oh, and thanks to you, you stinky enabler, I now have 3 new sets of double points from Knit Picks headed my way. LOL

    Hey your dishcloth looks great. I am stuck on my tea swap pal knitting part. However, I need to email you what I picked up last night for her. I think you will like it and I have a question with it of course. I found the Lion cotton at Hancock fabrics in birmingham. I don’t know if that helps, but if you want me to pick you up some and put it in the mail, I will.
