Dishclothes and shopping

God love dish clothes.  These simplistic easy to stitch little squares (well rectangles) that go together so smoothly.  I began one in a candy cane variegated  yarn, realized it had several errors, but finished it anyway.  I then quickly started another and finished in a few hours, starting and stopping as I got tired.  Then feeling guilty about the first, ripped it apart and re-knit it to match the second.  I now have four finished to give as gifts, although one is camo and not really holiday ready.  I might just whip up one more, although non-holiday in color, to give away.

Wanting to move past dish clothes, I sent my daughter to Joanne’s to purchase some needles and yarn.  I wanted to begin either a purse or a cabled hat.  She came back with almost all the correct needles.  She purchased a circular instead of the double pointed I asked for.  (she said they had “double points”)  Doll that she is, she obviously doesn’t know needles.

Knit zero purl even less

Does this say it all or what!  I finally gave up on the Olympics scarf.  I’ll take it up again for next year (hopefully).  I went back to my tiny scarf project, made a mistake that couldn’t be fixed, and ended up just ripping up the whole thing.  Ugh!  Frustrated and wanting to knit SOMETHING, I went back to dish clothes.  I love the feel and dry-ability of the Lily cotton so I thought I’d whip up a couple before the holiday, give a few as gifts, etc.  What I hadn’t planned on was getting sick, and loosing so much time sitting around.  I’m now back home and able to knit for brief periods as my IV site heals.  When will I be productive?
