I was originally going to knit four dishcloths this summer for the kitchen of an episcopalian church in Newberg. I like knitting, but I’m always expecting the project to end much sooner than it actually does. I guess I have a low tolerance for what I call knitting’s “failure to progress”. So, the church will have to make due with three knit and one crocheted.
All four were made with Lily’s Sugar and Cream in the following colors: Hot Green, Hot Orange, Salt and Pepper, and Bright Navy. These patterns are great for beginning knitters since they only use knit and purl. I didn’t run into any problems with the Love or Three Crosses dishcloths, but the tail of the Dragonfly puckered a little bit. This cleared up with a session of light blocking, though. I don’t normally block dishcloths but they are gifts so I went the extra mile. The white star is my Chromium Star Blanket pattern shortened appropriately for a dishcloth. Watch for the free pattern, which will be posted later this week in the pattern section.

If you were to map the distance traveled by the blood in your body in a single day it would make two round trips across the United States from coast to coast. That’s 12,000 miles!
