OMG.......its finished!!!

In just a little over a day.......including 12 hours of sleep, a shopping trip and 1.5 books read I finished the Garterlac Dishcloth!

Here it is in all its finished glory - yarn used Peaches & Creme in Peppermint



When I do my next dishcloth, I will pick a color pattern that has more than one color change - I don't think that the dual colored yarn shows the pattern as well as others I've seen.

Lani - I totally agree that this was a fun knit!! It was so cool to see what happened next!

Wendy - Based on my time and Lani's time, I don't think that you need to worry about finding too large of a chunk of time to devote towards this dishcloth! I will be waiting patiently....well, patience is not one of my virtues, so I'll be waiting impatiently to read that you are starting in on yours!!

Deneen - Go for the knitting! Its such great fun.....I was so hesitant to start knitting, but I sat down and figured it out - I am still very basic, so this dishcloth will not be too far out of your reach! Especially as it is all knit stitch, with some basic increasing and decreasing!

I love the way this looks-I am going to start playing around with the needles once I finish up a baby blanket I am working on. Once I am comfortable with two stitches and increasing and decreasing, I will do this! I love it!

You are such an enabler! Your dishcloth looks nice, like a candy cane.

Hey honey,

Your newest endeavor looks great. Nice colors but not good for washing and bleaching a dishcloth!!
Not to bad time wise, especially since you were also able to read 1.5 books to boot!!!! Sorry we missed your phone call.
Love,
Mom

It looks great!! The colorway looks very tasty. It think the pattern shows up just fine.
I'm glad you linked to this pattern. I started a Garterlac tonight, but got kind of zoned out and I think I squared on a square, so I need to start over.

It looks great! That stitch looks difficult, but I am glad that I peeked at the pattern. I think I could do it, but it might take me a year! LOL

Kimberly, I like it very much! Maybe your mother is right about the washing... Can´t wait to try the pattern!

Mimi said...

Kimberly, your entrelac looks amazing! I'd like to knit too, but at the same time I want to be more serious in crochet designing. I think I'm a bit sad that my crochet buddies had become knitting buddies now ;)
