Yo, Janice!

After I finished up the Ship Support squares and sent them off, I decided to do some more square knitting, but this time in cotton.

I absolutely love knitting with pink (also wearing and sewing)--that was sarcasm, in case you missed it--so I cast on for the next worthy cause (TBA next month on Rabbitch's spot).

Janice tells me that she really likes the hominess (or homliness, you decide) of the plain, ordinary basic, corner-to-corner cloth. I, on the other hand, enjoy the challenge of a little lace.

So I compromised with a little garter lace. All the hominess of granny, with a little prettiness thrown in.

The yarn is Elmore-Pisgah Peaches and Creme, color Strawberry & Cream that has been aging in the stash since

I swapped for it (or bought it--it's been so long that I no longer remember).

There's lots left, and since the lacy patterns require full, rapt attention to the line-by-line patterns (Leisure Arts Dishcloths From the Heart), I am making plain for car knitting and fancy for knitting at home.

Yes, there's lots left from this 1 pound cone!

I really detest this shade of pink!

Mittnz Update: No, I have not made more (but I have patternz picked!).

These Mittnz are from Jean in TX who knitz for CIC (Children In Common).

She reports that they are double stranded (for extra warmth), which explains the tweediness.

Are you inspired yet?

I love pink. I actually dislike corner-to-corner cloths, though. I like plain old "side to side, cast on 40 stitches, knit until it's square, cast off" cloths.

Clearly I have no soul.
Those dishclothes are cute! How can you not like pink??? I like corner to corner cloths too but havne't tried a pattern yet.
Another pink hater here. I too am in the midst of a lot of Sugar 'n' Cream/Peaches 'n' Creme knitting -- bibs and dishclothes. A little lace heart would look good in the corner of a bib...
