This is a bit boring but if this is to be a true record of my fibre journey I feel that I should let it all be here – no hiding the daggy bits!

I have been trying to get all the 2013 Dishcloth KALs from the Monthly Dishcloth Yahoo Group done and I am doing ok – I keep a record of all of the dishcloths on the group site but they are removed after about 12 months and sometimes it’s nice to look back and see what has been accomplished – even when it’s not a jumper or other large amazing project. Dishcloths are one of the most useful things I can knit – I LOVE using them – and I do use them as Dishcloths – and think every household should have a set of 7-14 in rotation at all times so I have been knitting a lot with the aim of having lots to give away.

I generally buy cotton from Bendigo Woollen Mills and just use 8 ply. Sometimes I pick up some on special at Spotlight but not often. I like to go through the suggested colour list at the beginning of the year and pick put colours from the Bendigo range and put in a good order – this year it meant I could knit all of the Olearia’s I wanted with left over cotton for cloths. Not sure how I’ll work it next year but it’s not long to go so I’ll have to start thinking of some bigger cotton projects or I’ll get bored with the same colour all year!
