FO: Dish Rag Tag dishcloth

Originally uploaded by knitswithasilentk
This year's Dish Rag Tag required you to do a specific design. It turned out to be a checkerboard in basketweave, so easy to memorize and a great cloth! Also, since we switched to the Priority Mail Small Box, it only fit one ball of yarn, so you didn't have a choice in yarn. Here is mine, ready to be sent to my teammate. Sorry for the poor photo - I forgot my camera and had to use my phone. Couldn't delay mailing it for lack of a camera!

In the foreground are some sheep soaps and an alpaca finger puppet. My next teammate was April (TX) and she reported that her son made off with the puppet. I had trouble parting with it myself.

Pattern: Official Pattern of Dishrag Tag: The Sequel (.pdf)
Yarn: Lily Sugar 'n Cream, in a gorgeous dark brown/tan/white colorway. Coffee and cream...mmm...
Needle: Size 7, Knit Picks Options.

Our team, the Dishrag Divas, is almost done!

I've decided to make a little NICU blanket for Kathy using the Son of Dish Rag Tag official pattern, expanding the middle to 12 squares and going until it's the right length. I have some Lion Wool-ease in sportweight that should make a nice little blankie. It's up next for TV knitting....

Was that finger puppet a dinosaur? No wonder her son run off with it.

It's been awhile since I've knit washcloths. Maybe next Summer I'll make a bunch up for gifts. They make great gifts with handmade soaps.

You could win a great prize if you send a blanket!

That is one adorable finger puppet! The dishrag is lovely too and the soaps are very cute. I'm not sure I get how they all go together, but somehow they do. And the photo isn't bad at all!
