First Ever FO! Just a Dishcloth
Woohoo! It's my first ever completed project! It's the Grandmother's Favorite Dishcloth pattern, nothing too strenuous...but I'm so proud of it!





I learned everything from Amy's videos...I can't wait to move on to bigger and better things now. I'm still working on a boring garter stitch scarf (which was the first project I started) and I just began a pawprint dishcloth so I can learn the purl stitch...and then, with any luck, I will be UNSTOPPABLE! MWAHAHA!!!

*ahem* Or something.

Congratulations! It's a great feeling, isn't it? I made one just like that and we are still using it---even after 8 years! But don't knock garter stitch; see my avatar picture to the left? It's a scarf: garter stitch, with short rowing (EASY!!!!!) and some simple double crochet around the whole thing. And good luck on your next project(s)---you are unstoppable; just think, knit n' purl, baby, knit n' purl.

That's just about the only pattern I use for dishcloths now. It's fast and easy! It looks great!

Somebody stop her! (in a Jim Carey voice). WTG looks great! My grams always made her dishcloths in that same pattern.
