Knitting happy colors

Here is what I have been knitting of late. Dishcloths/washcloths. They are a very easy pattern and I can knit one up in about 3 hrs. I seem to like a project I can finish so I can move on to another. It gives me a sense on accomplishment. I have been knitting these in cotton yarn in both organic and inorganic. Organic yarn is quite expensive compared to the inorganic. I also have to either order it online which incurs a shipping charge, (which makes it even more expensive) or go an hour's drive to a store that carries it. I have also toyed with the idea of knitting a triangle shawl in the same pattern and maybe with the cotton yarn. Not sure how much it would take to do it but the shawl would be a bit on the heavy side I'm sure. The photos are organic first then inorganic. Aren't the colors pretty???

  1. Good job!
    Knitting dishcloths is like eating potato chips .. you can't stop with just one. =) I have used my self-edging dish cloth pattern to make baby blankets and shawls too. It works great with circular needles.
