Olympic Dishcloth KAL - The Olympics are Officially Over - What's Your Dishcloth Count?
I've been pondering this idea for a bit and was wondering if anyone would be interested...

I have a lot of Peaches 'n Cream sitting around and have been wanting to make some dishcloths and washcloths.

My thoughts are to try to complete one on each day of the Olympics. That would make 17 FO's when it's all said and done.

Anyone game?

We could post suggested patterns or just do whatever we want.

Oh, and here's a link to the schedule of the games. Opening ceremonies are on 8/8, and the Closing ceremonies are on 8/24.

Since it does not start till 8/8 I may be game. will just have to see how many balls of cotton that I have, I have spent quite a lot on yarn recently so this would have to be a stash only knit.

Thanks for the link to the games schedule, have saved it so I know when to watch the things that I like.

I'm kind of looking at this as a stash-buster KAL too. I have so much cotton yarn, that I think it would be a great way to use it up.

Regardless of how many cloths we complete, we'll at least have our own goals while we're watching others reach their's.

Sounds like a good idea to me. A good way to use up that 14 oz ball of cotton.

That's great, all! I'll see what kind of patterns I can find for the cloths...things to go along with our theme, if you want.
