On our road trip last week I tucked some cotton yarn in among the story books, magazines and snacks, thinking I would have plenty of time to knit up some dishcloths along the way. Over the years I have played around with different patterns and found I really liked both the seed stitch (knit one, purl one) and a simple rib stitch (knit 2, purl 2) for dishcloths. Between reading, sharpening colored pencils with my pocket knife (because someone forgot to bring his pencil sharpener) and gawking at the beautiful scenery, I knitted up four on the trip. I could not help casting on another to work on here at home, stealing away short moments to knit a few rows at a time. They area so simple, easy, and useful. Practical me can hardly resist.
I have some other fun and exciting projects going on that I will be able to share very soon!
Along with the usuals we have had a little kiddy music flashback with The Laurie Berkner Band playing while we were doing some making and game playing. Good times!
