Ravelry I found that it has been discontinued)
Once I got it home, it seemed to be too heavy for dishcloths so I just started swatching with it to see what size hook I liked with it and what I might dream up. This Easter-like basket is it. I think the color may have influenced me. I knit it quite tightly on a J-hook so that it would stand up on its own. I believe I have enough yarn left on the cone to make another basket. I will write the pattern down this time so I can share it with you. (Peeking out from the basket is my current sock project, but my sister might read this so I won't say any more about it).
plurk) posted a link to a dishcloth KAL/CAL that she hosts each month on Ravelry. I had been working on the socks in the basket above and the chart was messing with my head, so a dishcloth sounded wonderfully relaxing to me. I joined her KAL/CAL, and the picture to the left is this afternoons result. It is Peaches & Creme Stripes in the Stars and Stripes forever colorway.
I almost exclusively reserve cotton for dishcloths, but the basket has got me thinking of other things to do with it. What do you make with cotton?
Happy creativity to you all!
