Real Knitting, Finally
I finally got a good picture of the dishcloth my swap partner sent me; I don’t know why I had such a hard time getting this picture originally. I guess I need to become a better photographer. Isn’t this pattern great? Moreover, I think the colors are great; it has become my favorite face cloth.
Have you ever noticed that it takes many stitches to knit for a fluffy person? I am making the sweater I found in Knitty, shown in my last post. I have not made a sweater for me before, so I was unsure of the sizing, etc. I cast on for the largest size (and it took many attempts since my tail was never long enough), but finally I got all stitches on the needles and started knitting away.
This picture is what I completed the first evening I had time to work on it (several attempts at swatching took up a great deal of time, as did my several tries at casting on.) I have now gotten much farther along, and am loving it, the green is not quite right in this picture; however we have horrible lighting in our hotel and I think it has affected the picture. Nevertheless, as I said, it takes many stitches when knitting for a fluffy person (and I am definitely fluffy) :-)
I signed up for Dish Rag Tag today; I think this will be fun. You can go here to sign up.
