I'll be making a swiffer cover I think, but I did just finish 2 Shih Tzu Dishcloths for any Shih Tzu lovers out there. More pics on the KH link above

Lieuvena, I've been wanting to make some of those Tribbles. I think I'll make a couple to go with the ballband dishcloths I'm making for my mom and mother-in-law.

Modular Coasters from Knitty Gritty
I've been dying to try these 'coasters', only they can be anything you want, like a dishcloth or washcloth. You probably remember the Knitty Gritty episode on Modular Knitting

Hmmm.... another KAL that I can probably handle! Not going to over extend myself, but I think maybe I can handle a scrubbie! Now to decide which one..... I'd like to make the one Artlady perfected, but must get myself some tulle!

I've made a bunch of them now. My 3 daughters and my housekeeper love them! I do a smaller, denser version of Artlady's scrubbie. I prefer a smaller one and a tighter weave for scrubbing. Here's my version -

Folding yarn inside netting cast on 16 stitches with size 10 needles, knit for about 9 or 10 ridges (18-20 rows) and bind off. Weave in ends.

You'll need to stop and fold in the yarn into the netting every so often. I try not to let any yarn show that is not covered with the netting to keep it from getting worn away with scrubbing.

BTW.. tulle is generally that soft bridal stuff which probably isn't strong enough for scrubbing. Look for a more hefty netting or buy it online at the links I shared in the first post.

I got this one done. Here is the pattern: Slip Stitch Dishcloth

I ended up with a row of dots along the top. I'm not sure what to do to not get those. I assume I shouldn't have slipped the stiches on the last pink row. Does that sound right? I'd like to make this again (I'd like to do orange and black) and would prefer not to have those.

Sorry for the bad picture. We are having very stormy and gray weather today. I just can't seem to get a good one. The color on mine is more like the one on the pattern page. Bright pink and black.
