I've never done short rows or w&t, so I'm intrigued. Not gonna start it tonight, but possibly tomorrow.

It has short rows? I should look. I wonder how they say to do them. Whatever they say to do I will probably do German short rows on account of because that's what I'm used to.

German short rows are one way of working them without the wrap and turn. Short rows German There are many ways of doing them. A discussion on short rows and how to work them is something like the proverbial can of worms. I prefer the German over the W&T method because I think it looks better.

Bathing Beauty Ribbon Lace washcloth done!
In between cooking for family dinners, training Gizmo, and looking for jobs, I got the first washcloth for Christmas finished and blocked. The matching soap sack is still OTN; I dropped one of the lace stitches, and need to figure out how to latch it back up, so it's patiently awaiting me.

I used Mandarin Petit fingering weight Egyptian cotton by SandnesGarn in Topaz Blue. It has the unfortunate tendency to split, but is oh so soft. Yummy stuff! My cloth knit up to be about 9" square after blocking.

It is!

I'm looking forward to trying the Old Shale Cloth in the round... Maybe that will be good practice for a round doily.
