I Had To...



do this to enter a contest. I love entering contests (esp. when sock yarn is involved). I was surfing the net this afternoon at work (business is very slow and Monica has a migraine so we couldn't IM) and came across a new blog (to me) where Carrie is having a contest. You have to start (she didn't say you had to finish it, but I probably will anyway) a springy looking dishcloth. After I fed my family, I pulled out my bin of cotton yarns and found the most springy looking ball I had. This is what I've done so far. I'm using a pattern that is in the 2006 Knitting Pattern A Day Calender. It's starting to pool now with the increase of stitches and I'm almost to the required 43 stitches you have to reach before starting the decreases. That's all I have for now...more later.

No one is more surprised than me... but I finished something that wasn't a sock (see, I can knit other things). I wove in the ends as Grey's was ending. I wonder if I get extra credit for finishing it? Just kidding! I love when triangles become squares!
Back to the socks, I still need to finish one for Socktopia before Tuesday!

I need to make some new cloths so this comes at a great time. And yours is very colorful.

Karen, your sock looks great! Thanks for playing in the contest! And you're quite a sock knitter, I see =) Wow! I'm glad you found my site, and I yours.

That's one reason I love knitting dishcloths, so quick to knit.
