I've been in a knitting slump lately and when I saw that yarn I thought it was just the perfect thing to make to brighten up my kitchen and life. Then, I got crazy and bought a bunch of Plymouth Encore for another prayer shawl but that's another story! lol
I'll be sure to post up finished pictures of the dish cloth and towel when I get it done. I just wanted something easy and simple so I decided to knit it in garter stitch.
The good news is that the last bag of yarn was picked up today and my hoarding stash is getting bare. I still have some skeins that I'm holding on to, "might use someday" but in all reality, once I've got some postage money saved up, I'll be mailing them out to ravelry folks. I found some neat groups that I've recently joined like, "Random Acts of Kindness". You can post up your wishes and read others and send them things. I love it! If you haven't discovered ravelry yet, you're missing out!
One particular group I joined that I like is Swap/One. They have an open dish cloths swap and it's just as plain and basic as you can get. No commitments for the entire year or month. If you want to trade a dish cloth, you just post it and then someone writes back. Sometimes within minutes. :-) I love the "open" idea. I would love to be able to commit to a long term one, but know that it's highly unlikely that I will ever get to.
Well, off to declutter the camper. It's taking a long time to see any progress, but maybe one day I'll open my eyes and be shocked! lol
