Thanks GG. I'm getting more confident and adventurous lol. I used the size 6 because all my 7s had UFO' s on them. It seemed like even trying to keep my tension loose wasn't enough, it was a tight knit on the yo's. The size 8 was better, but I think I'll go back to my 7s. They are my fave dishcloth needles. I'm about to cast on for another lacy cloth now. lacy knit dishcloth. Can't wait to see how this turns out!!

Oh Janis, that is so pretty! You have progressed so nicely, it is amazing that you have only been knitting since June.

More Xmas cloths
Something many of us will be doing 'til the cows come home. But I do have one more washcloth completed towards my girl gifts. It's the Old Shale washcloth in Natural Sandnes Garn Mandarin Petit yarn from the Bathing Beauties booklet. And in taking a short break from lace knitting washcloths, soap sacks, and picot bind offs, I've found a new favorite stitch pattern for dishcloths.

The blueish photo is from one of DDs dishcloths in progress for her house.I have no idea what it may be called, but it makes a firm yet flexible fabric, with little edge curling.

The stitch pattern is worked on an even number of stitches.

Row 1: k1, *yo, k2, pass yo over 2 knit stitches. Repeat from * to last stitch, k 1.
Row 3: k2, *yo, k2 pass yo over 2 knit stitches. Repeat from *, to last 2 stitches, k2.
Rows 2 & 4: purl across.

Easy peasy, and perfect TV or visiting knitting. The picot bind off, not so much.

Thanks everyone! I really enjoyed making it. I loved the way the colors worked into the pattern.
Charlotte, I'm gonna try that stitch pattern! Thanks for sharing. And the doily(?) is gorgeous!

Here is the lacy knit dishcloth I mentioned.

Thanks Janis! I hope my stepmom likes it.

Your lacy dishcloth really came out nice! The color reminds me of lime sherbet - YUM!

A simple and elegant, dishcloth. Very nice, Janis.

Beautiful stitch patterns and dishcloths, Janis and Charlotte. Love the picot bind off which was worth every minute.

The first of many for DD
Just finished DDs dishcloth in that yo/psso stitch. The next one is OTN. Sorry for the weird camera angle, it really is a 10x12 rectangle. Thought I'd share before I go finish dinner.
