Do you ever see something that someone else has knitted and instantly become obsessed with it?
For me, this happens all the time which leads me into my newest obsession. Dishcloths. I don’t know how many people this applies to, but I’ve been knitting for over two years and have yet to knit a dishcloth. I hadn’t even considered it or even given it a second thought until my co-worker decided to try knitting again and bought a beginner knitting dishcloth kit from Knit Picks.
She showed me the kit and I thought “that looks nice, I should try that some time.” The real obsession didn’t happen until after she finished her first dishcloth and brought it into work to show me.
After I squeezed that dishcloth I was instantly obsessed and knew I need to make like 16 of them. See what I mean by obsession. I do have to admit I’d never really paid much attention to 100% cotton yarn and was surprised to find that Knit Picks dishie yarn is super soft and squish-able and according to their website super absorbent too. Needless to say after she showed me her dishcloth I got online and purchased 5 balls of the dishie yarn and the beginner dishcloth kit which came with another three balls of dishie yarn.
