My first real knit project is a very basic dishcloth. When I say basic, I mean that it is just one stitch - the knit/garter stitch. I'm using a ball of cotton yarn that I only used a little of it to finish another crocheted dish towel earlier. My goal is to use the entire roll (what's left of it) to make this dishcloth. I plan to give it to my mom. Maybe she'll hang it on the refrigerator, you know like what you do when you have kids. She (my mom) seems to think that the dishcloths that people make are too pretty to use. I'll try to change her mind. :-)
Anyways, since it's Monday, I have to cook a new meal and be in the kitchen for a while. Afterwards, I hope to have time and energy to continue working on this dishcloth. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
