So I’ve been knitting since December-ish and I’ve never made dishcloths before! Can you believe it?? I decided I had to join the party and finally knit some.
I’m pretty disappointed in them, the swan especially. I dunno what’s what but my stitching was just all off…My purls are all crazy loose for some reason and the patterns don’t show. I think it’s cuz I’ve taken to doing that Norwegian method. I love it, but it definately makes my stitches looser than normal. Also, this is the first time I’ve ever knit with cotton…I used Sugar 'n Cream and I guess I’m just not used to the fiber. My stitches are usually much more uniform.
They’re “meh” overall…in person the tulip shows up pretty well, and the swan you can see from a distance if you hold it up. (You can barely see it at all in the pic) But it was fun to start and finish something in less than 2 hours! I think I’ll make more and try to even out my “Norwegian” stitches.
Anywho…I gave both of these to my girlfriend who just got married (ack! I have married friends now!!) as part of her shower gift. I’ve had a policy since I started knitting to include some kind of awful and tacky handknit item in every gift I give
