Dishtowel Love

Well, I forgot to mention in the last post that the undies only really looked that good for a brief while. They started stretching and sagging really quickly so I'm going to have to work on figuring out some sizing and construction issues before trying to share a pattern.

So not fun. So frustrating. Especially after so much work. And I didn't really have any easy projects to work on, nor did I want to start work on my next design after that de-motivation. I didn't knit for two days.

I was beginning to twitch.

I really needed a brainless, satisfying knit. So I picked up some linen/cotton yarn I had dyed a cheerful pale lavender, and hunted down a dishcloth pattern.

I knitted off that entire 50g of yarn in less than two days. It was VERY satisfying. And I had an FO that didn't require a good fit, and wouldn't matter much if it stretched or shrank a bit in use.





I love this pattern. It is the Basket Rib Handtowel, only mine was washcloth sized because I ran out of yarn.

Your undies are cute! Hope you figure out the problems and post the pattern.
