The Humble Washcloth

Hello all. Since January, my main focus has been on my prosthetic technology classes which are going very well. Each day I am learning so much. Knitting is not my main focus these days. At the end of my long day, I sit and knit a couple of rows for about 5 minutes before falling asleep. I have been making very simple cotton washcloths (using garter stitch, seed stitch, and linen stitch). Nothing complicated or fancy. But I think I will actually use these. It's a very utilitarian project. Maybe, some day I will go back to doing bigger, more adventurous projects when I am done with school and have more free time again....Anyway, I still look at all of the interesting and various projects all of you are working on. Keep up the good work. Keep on knitting and creating things....Cullen

Washcloths are a great way to quickly make something usable, as well as a great way to keep your stitching even and concise. Even if you don't use them, the quality of your work, as well as the color choices, would make a great gift for someone, especially for a housewarming. I make them my mother, my son, and here at home regularly. They are a great staple of cleaning...either your own body, or whatever needs washing around the house. I simply tell my friends and family that if they start to fall apart, just let me know and I'll make them some more.

Continued good wishes for your studies.

Well, we look forward to your return to bigger projects and enjoy seeing your small ones. Knitting is knitting and I hope you keep it up at whatever size you can. Good luck with your school!

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
