Claire,

Your colors are adorable, just like Easter Eggs! And your cloth is looking mighty fine!

Easter eggs? Yeah, OK. It's very pretty. Nicely done!

No Circle Cloth for me.
After goofing the 2nd border on my washcloth three times and frogging it all three times, I decided a change of pace was in order. Can't help but wonder how much getting the Giz had to do with that...

So I cast on for my circle cloth dishcloth with my new needles in the size I usually use for Dishie, Size 9. But after working through the pattern to get 2 rows of circles, it felt funny in my hands while working, so I decided against finishing it and frogged it too.

I do love how the pattern stitch looks, just not how it felt when in work. Maybe I knit tighter on the new needles, and I need to move up to 10s.

The new Nova Cubics feel great, BTW, much easier to hold. Now, if I can just leave Gizmo alone long enough to get the second border right on my washcloth...

Both sides look nice IMO. It's amazingly flat. This piece doesn't have much stretch to it. I'm using size 8 needles and Peaches and Creme yarn, Sunshine and a blue w/o a label so I don't know what they call it. Larger needles would make it looser and somewhat stretchier I suppose and would be a good dishcloth.

I got the yarn for a circle cloth and it got hijacked for this.



Yeah, that's easy to do. Try making yourself do it sometime, you might be glad you did.
I like the colors and the texture of the stitch you used in this. Have you finished it yet?

Thanks, Claire, for asking. I did finish but I've not decided whether to add a button and button loop. After working with this stitch pattern and then seeing the beautiful Mosaic Crib Blanket that MerigoldinWA made I just have to try mosaic knitting!

That turned out really nice I think a button would finish off the cover.

I look forward to hearing about your mosaic knitting adventures.

Very pretty. For a new knitter you really are awesome at keeping your tension consistent. I still struggle with that and chronologically I'm not a new knitter anymore.

Thanks, GG. I am such a perfectionist. I'm trying really hard not to be but it's hard. I concentrate on keeping my tension consistent... I tend to knit extremely tightly if I don't.
