Am not sure I missed this or not in the thread or elsewhere, but does anyone have any suggestions on knitting a tad faster I am lucky if I can get 150-200 stitches an hour.. which means things take a bit longer. When a pattern says it's only an hour pattern, I laugh...

I didn't really get the dishcloth thing at first, either, until I used one. Speaking of which, that's another of my goals/resolutions this year, is to fill my kitchen drawer with enough handknit cloths that I no longer have to use the flimsy storebought ones. ;-)

Doesn't take me long! I can make them in about a few hours.

I'm in the same boat. I'm really a slow knitter. I know I'd be faster if I knit continental. It's just so hard to switch since I learned English style.

That's so true... never underestimate the power of a "quick project" on your sanity levels. A little "FO" boost here and there certainly makes those loooooong projects a little more bearable!

I just found another thing I knit this year, and forgot about.
Ankle Socks, for the Bernat Blog. So, that makes 69 things. Kinda looks like yen-yang, eh?

I love my knit dishcloths. I am teaching myself to crochet as well. I think the crocheted cloths work even better. My goal is to get at least seven knit for my drawer...enough for one each day! I also want to try my hand at some of the scrubbies I've seen people making.

Never thought of it like that! Just like something simple big or little while I watch tv!
