I really had to scratch my head to understand why Dishcloth Mania seemed to be sweeping the on-line knitting community. Then I realized it was like making x-stitch smalls. You could try out new patterns, stitches and yarns. You could complete the item quickly before the project bogged down and became a potential UFO. Plus they make good little gifts, and they are actually useful.
So I dusted off the knitting needles that hadn't seen the light of day for a few years. Then I found an intriguing pattern for mock cables that needed no cable needle. The cables are all made by increasing and decreasing the number of stitches. I used Butter Ombre Sugar & Cream cotton yarn and I loved how the variegation worked up. I made a lot of mistakes, but it's just a dish cloth so I don't think it matters so much.
You can find the pattern here along with lots of others.
For more quick finishes, I stitched up two additional minipop designs.
We have the Fleetwood Mac cover photo from the Rumors album. Who would believe you could get the idea with such limited detail. And then the cast of Seinfeld. A readily identifiable Kramer at least.
Finally, the winner of the Angel Collectors pattern is that Venezuelan angel, Sandra. Only took a flip of a coin to decide, but I'm happy the chart will have a good home. Thanks to both the entrants for playing!
