So I have been to Aldi at the plaza twice since Lincraft opened up next door. And guess how many times I have also popped in to Lincraft and ‘just had a look’*?
Yep. That’d be twice as well.
Oh hello new cotton. Where did you come from?
And hello new knitting pattern – I am moving on and up in the world of dishcloth knitting with these ‘grandma dishcloths’.
That’s right. First hand cotton and a real pattern (thanks Pinterest).
I made the yellow one while I listened to/half watched two Ted talks. And then I started the blue one while I was talking to Clive about his day (he didn’t get home til 10pm).
And then instead of helping the kids get ready for school in the morning I just did a couple of rows …
I do find patterns where you have to increase and decrease row lengths quite addictive. You know … it’s so easy at the start because the rows are quite short. And then there are just a few long rows. And then you reach the longest row. And then the rows start decreasing in length and the end is in sight.
And yep, all of a sudden I am running late … but I have a new dishcloth!
* I bought wool both times.
