Here it is, at long last: the Ballband dishcloth. I made it with two colors of Lion cotton I got on sale (boy, those balls have great yardage!). It is a fun pattern, and I could get into these easy slip stitch patterns. So easy to make colorful stuff with no fuss! As I made this, I realized that a blanket that was given to TLD is the same pattern, except that it's all in stockinette instead of putting the "bricks" in reverse-stockinette.

Pattern: Ball band dishcloth, from Mason Dixon knitting or the ball band of Pisgah Peaches & Creme.
Yarn: Lion Cotton, red and brown.
Needle: KnitPicks Options, size 6.

I did this exactly as written.

Here's a modeled shot:

When I handed this over to TLD, he put it in his mouth (of course), but then he started polishing his toys and wiping the floor! So now of course it's his.

There you go! Teaching him to do dishes early is a good plan.

Keep him polishing and it will give him a good start on doing for himself in life, LOL.

My kids wanted me to get a dish washer and I said, "Why? I have 3 dish washers standing right here?" Haha, they accused me of having kids only to make them my housekeepers. Boohoo. Seriously, my daughter & one son are better housekeepers than me to this very day.
