Dishcloth Challenge Update

Afternoon Everyone 🙂

This week Ruairí’s name was pulled from the tub so he got his cloth knitted up for him. His Harry Potter themed dishcloth was the Elixir of Euphoria and he wanted red and black for his colours and he was most adamant where he wanted them and there would be no persuading lol.

I used again the King Cole Bamboo for this in red and black and I used a smaller needle 3.5mm for a tighter knit. These cloths do need a blocking but there is no way I’d be given that much time to do it, they are taken as soon as they come off the needles and put in the bathroom for use immediately lol. So you will have to excuse the pictures.

This pattern was a free Ravelry download and can be found HERE

When all the children are home from school later another name shall be drawn, all I can tell you is it will be another Harry Potter theme lol. Have you gotten the idea that the children especially James are Harry Potter mad 🙂

As I said last week Benjamin does not appear in front of the lens of the camera to often but I did manage to capture two photos of him this week, only two though mmmm..
This one he posed for

This one which is my favourite I caught him on the hop

As always thank you for your lovely and wonderful comments I enjoy reading them very much.

Happy knitting,

    Oh, I love your HP cloths! After seeing them here I had to dust off my ravelry account so I can save them there with the hope to knit them someday!

    I love how the children are studying the toy section of a catalogue. When my son was young he used to call the Argos catalogue his Christmas book.

    Would never have guessed the kids were Potter mad 🙂 Lovely cloth – I'm sure it's been put to use already! Benjamin is just too cute for words! Actually all your kids are!

  6. Another wonderful cloth!! I suppose since it's going to get wet immediately, anyway, there's not much point in blocking. =)
