Morning bloggers, its bright and sunny here and it feels like spring is coming !
On the dishcloth front, I’ve caught up now that the crazy challenge part of my stitching is over so I have my complete cloth for this week to show you.
But first a picture of last weeks cloth completed. It was the Lizard Ridge Dishcloth and I just loved this one, it reminded me so much of the sea and I love the sea 🙂
I’ve seen this stitch used in bags which I’m tempted to go try out and I think it would make a great stitch for a scarf..I might play around with that idea a bit.
Here is is.

For this weeks cloth I chose to knit the Linoleum Dishcloth. This is such a gorgeous pattern and the pinks in it just spoke to me, and I’m not really a pink colour, its ok in extreme moderation, well this blows that idea out of the water but it is a cloth for a gift so it won’t matter to much that its pink ! lol
It is knit with knit stitches and slip stitches so it has a real scrubby feel and so will be a really good cloth for cleaning. I used Rico Aran Cotton and this is my favourite brand of 100% cotton to use. It comes in 50g balls that seem to last ages and its inexpensive.
The design is reminiscent of linoleum floors with its interlocking diamond pattern and knit up so fast, a real winner I think. I may revisit this later in the year I have a combination of grey white and lime green I want to try with this !

Keri over at whendidibecomeaknitter has knit a Seal of Rassilon cloth for her first one, again Keri is aiming to complete a cloth every two weeks. Her Seal of Rassilon is a Dr Who inspired cloth for all you fans out there 🙂
I’m off now to see what takes my fancy for next weeks cloth !
Tomorrow I’ll have an update on my stitching SAL’s that I’ve been able to start this week.
