More on the Dishcloth Cotton Addiction
Project: Dave's Garterlac Dishcloth (detail of the FO)
Yarn: Sugar n' Cream Peppermint colorway (slightly less than one ball)
Needles: Knit Picks Options 24" circular, size 7 .
Finished Dimensions: About 8.5 inches high and 9 inches wide.
Thoughts: Excellent, excellent pattern. (Yay, Dave!) If you are in need of dishcloths, or just something fun to knit with all that cotton you have lying about, hightail it on over to Criminy Jickets and print out Dave's pattern.
Yarn was fine ... everyone keeps saying that the Sugar n' Cream colorways are so much better than Peaches n' Creme. This was the only one (other than white) I could find that didn't scream "Kountry Kitchen!" (Not that there's anything wrong with kountry kitchens, just not my preferred color scheme.) All these great colors ... not at my Wal-Mart, anyway.
The needles. Well, they've been blogged about ad nauseam. But put me in the camp that loves them to pieces. Nice and slick, and sharp, and I love that the cables have zero memory. I didn't notice the extra weight. Undoubtedly, had the nasty mother of the Prince Charming put me to the pea-under-the-many-mattresses test, I'd have failed miserably. Just not sensitive enough. All I can say is, there's one test you'd want to fail. Imagine that for a mother-in-law.
