My latest addiction…

Yup, I’m hooked:
Day 160 - Wednesday, March 29th 2007
I’ve become obsessed with dishrags/washcloths this week. This is such a great pattern and it’s a great instant gratification project. Colorful, fun, quick, easy, and useful – what more could you ask for?

I have been working on Manta Ray for sooooo long that it has been nice to take a little break. It is still fun to knit but I’ve been at it for a long time. I started it right around my birthday, I am 2/3 of the way through and, while I want to finish it, I am losing steam. Big projects are really, really hard for me – I just don’t have the follow-through and I love the excitement of starting something new.

One thing that has really kept me at it is that Manta Ray has become my “Strategic Planning” project; most of my knitting has been done during strategic planning meetings and retreats – in many ways it has made the process (strategic planning not knitting) bearable. Good thing there’s a meeting this week!

  1. You and I may soon be sharing the latest addiction. I just started my first ballband dishcloth from MDK and I love it. Your colors are gorgeous! You can see my WIP on my blog: http://knelleyknits.blogspot.com/ I just started the blog. Fun!

  2. I love these! Great colors, too. Well done! And I know what you mean about big projects…I feel like I’m never going to finish this super-long Seed stitch scarf.

  3. Excellent color choices! I did one of these a few days ago and am very pleased with the result as well! Nice knitting!

  4. Love the colors in your washcloths. They might almost make doing the dishes a pleasure! :-)

  5. Thanks everyone. They are so much fun to make and I just love using them!
