I have to say I never thought I would dig up this much cotton, thought I would actually have to make up some excuse why my DH had to go and buy me more. He gets it at a shop near his work.

Ok...I've got to get my hiney moving! I'm going to get my cotton out of the various baskets and take a picture too!

My plan is to match each skein with a pattern. Then, I won't waste time each day trying to figure out what I want to do but will be able to grab a "package" and start knitting. I'll post my plan...as soon as I come up with it.

Ok, you inspired me. Here's my cotton stash:



There's 13 skeins in there...not quite enough for all 17 days, but I have a feeling that my goal of completing one cloth per day is ambitious. But hey, it's the Olympics. It's all about ambitions and striving for a goal.

I hope no one minds but I had to start this KAL a little early.

I looked and looked, but couldn't find an Olympics themed dishcloth pattern for this KAL, so I designed my own!



This is the first time I've ever designed anything, as I'm a stick to the pattern type of knitter, and I'm pleased with it.

I typed up the pattern and attached it, in case anyone else would like to make an Olympics Ring 2008 dishcloth of their own.

Pattern Note: It should say that the Odd row stitch goes up to row 53, not 35!!!
