Twisted purl

Another cotton Sugar and Cream FO. This time it’s a facecloth from the Dishcloth Boutique. I decided to make one of the patterns without a picture, just like that. I’m quite happy with the result, except I don’t see any eyelets in the border. Maybe I knit too tight.

This finished the skein of the Sugar and Cream. So I got two ****cloths (dish, wash, face, whatever!) out of one 2.5 oz (70.9 gm) skein. Nice. I probably wouldn’t be able to crochet two full pieces, but knit is possible.

Details:

Yarn: Sugar and Cream in Cornflower Blue. The other half of the skein left over from the Round Dishcloth.

Needles: Pony 3.75 mm (UK 9/US 5) straights

Pattern: Eyelet Border Facecloth from the Dishcloth Boutique

Time: Overnight

Size: 8.5″ x 7.75″

Extra: #1 New stitch pattern learnt! And without a picture, too 😀

#2 I literally had less than an inch of yarn left over at the end. Gasp!

The Dishcloth Boutique is a great place to practise and learn new stitches. They have both crochet and knit patterns. Now if I could only arrange for an uninterrupted supply of cotton yarn or find a good substitute for it here.

Since I’m so pleased with myself about this thing, some more pictures of the neat marching rows of stitches:

Dang. WordPress isn’t letting me upload any more pics. Must be tired of faded blue knit pictures. Sigh.
