Marsha Leftycrafter recently shared with me the DW David Waltrip Dishcloth pattern and after a few rows I fell in serious like! I especially like how this stitch pattern plays with variegated yarns:
Thankfully, the pattern has been archived here. I have way too much variegated kitchen cotton yarn I bought that looked pretty in a ball, but worked up is sometimes less than I hoped for. This stitch pattern hasn't disappointed me yet when using a short-segment-variegated yarn. The pattern is quick. It's easy. It's fun!
I also made a little progress on a Fairly Islelish Cardigan (baby sweater):
I'm heading into making the yoke where I will introduce another shade of gray in the stripe pattern (or another color). I'm open to suggestions on a contrast color. I want this to be suitable for a boy (though I'm having second thoughts about how well this pattern truly suits a boy - more on that when I'm finished). And I am going to finish this. I think.
And I started this:
But... as okay as that looks, I'm fairly unimpressed. I think I'm going to rip it out as soon as I finish writing, and start this pattern. The yarn I'm using is pretty nondescript so I'm thinking I need to make something fun with it.
Someone's having a birthday this week!
I'm turning 60 and I'm actually kind of excited about it. I know... is that weird? Getting older is sometimes for the birds, but there's something about this milestone birthday that has me kind of eagerly anticipating what's next in life.
I'm still trying to figure out how to ring this birthday in and it may, in the end, be very low key ('cuz I'm a pretty low key kind of gal), but I'm hoping my birthday this year lives up to the anticipation I'm allowing myself to have for it. So wish me well in that.
