I'll look that pattern up, for sure!
When I started looking for dishcloth patterns, I was amazed at how many are out there. Then I started making some, and Oh, Wow! Am I hooked!!! They are so incredible.
Last week the AC Moore in Dover, Delaware had Sugar 'N Creme on sale for $1 and I stocked up. But by the time I got there the bins were almost empty. The gal who works in the yarn department told me she'd ordered a huge shipment for the sale but it didn't arrive in time. So she let me get a raincheck for 40 more skeins!!! They'll call me when it comes in and I'll make the trip over there (about 45 minutes) in record time!
But meanwhile, I got started on some of the bundles I got on the first trip. I use size #9 needles to get the weave I like best. I found that if I continued the dishcloth pattern and knitted the whole 2 oz. ball I'd get a good sized dish towel, too! The pattern I used was a waffle stitch with garter stitch borders on 41 stitches.
I'm so grateful for the help and recommendations you've all given me. It's opened a door into a super knitting activity!
By the way, I've already sent my Godmother a dishcloth to try out. She loved it and is looking forward to her dishcloths (and now dishtowels) for the new kitchen! Thanks again!
