Dishcloth critters

OwlPair

This is “Who Owl Help Cook & Clean,” another slip stitch dishcloth pattern by Amy Marie Vold (CornucopiAmy on Ravelry). I knit this pair in Lily’s Sugar ‘n Cream.

What a hoot!  Here’s a closer look.

Amy’s mosaic cloths are such fun to knit that I find I can rarely knit just one. And I do much enjoy doing them in pairs, switching the colors.

“Frog Prince of the Pad” is another of Amy’s patterns. And again I used Lily’s Sugar ‘n Cream.

These make excellent dishcloths. A number of little ones in my vicinity like to use them at bathtime too. I didn’t quite have enough yarn for a second one, since I’d started with less than full skeins. So this Frog Prince is knit in Knit Picks Dishie. Dishie makes for a slightly more refined look. Well, if a dishcloth frog can ever be even slightly refined.

My cloths have been hooting, ribbiting, and now comes the purring. This is a pair of “PurrPETual Domestic Supervisors,” another of Amy’s patterns.

Why dishcloths? What ever possesses a knitter to knit dishcloths? This subject has come up before on my blog. They are quick knits. They are useful. My family likes to accept them from me. And combine all that with these clever slip stitch/mosaic patterns…at times I simply get addicted to them.

Good thing that the knitting universe is big enough to accept all manner of knits and all kinds of knitters.
