Great Knitted Reef


Behold: All my wonderful unblocked washcloths in their wrinkled glory. I'm loving the colours and did I already mention the softness of the denim?? Cause they're really super soft. I think they look like something that should be decorating the coral reefs, swaying with the tides. Like instead of being freshly knit, they're freshly picked :)

I adjust the Mason-Dixon Washcloth by one row - I cast on 138 stitches instead of 150 and the rest was peanuts. It's a great little pattern to knit, too. The first couple of rows have bobbles and yarn-overs to keep you interested and busy and then the decreases start to get serious and you fly to the center.

  1. I love them. Too cool. Funny how you can make a washcloth sound great!
    Hey, you're not pissed at me, are you? I haven't heard from you in a long time and was wondering. If so, I'll creep back into my hole now.

    I think the stitch reads better in your choice of white/off white, but I'm still loving it in grey!mmm...alpaca...

    cheers
