I Drank the Kool-Aid

Well, the ladies at Mason-Dixon Knitting finally sucked me into their Dishcloth madness. Not that it takes much for me. I have, however, managed to avoid the ubiquitous Ball-Band Dishcloth successfully. But when Kay posted the pattern to this little beauty, I couldn't resist. I actually cast-on for it right away last night, finishing the garter stitch squares. This morning I finished the mitered square corners and wove in the ends. It's a purty dishcloth, isn't it? MD Mitered Cloth Oh yes, I see more of these in my future. But damn if there aren't a crap-ton of ends to weave in after.

I love doing dishcloths, but I haen't done one of those yet. Yours is gorgeous! Great job!

That's really pretty, but I don't envy you with all those ends to sew in.

But isn't the KoolAid so tasty and refreshing? xox Kay

As long as it's grape with a hint of cyanide, it's perfectly refreshing. ;)

Trek - I'm not sure of the metric conversion of crap-ton, but rest assured, it's alot. Like, 18, in this case. Sheesh.

Hey that is a really cool dishcloth, I think I may have to make me one of those ;) Fun colors too!

18 ends in one discloth is too much for this wuss.

10 is bad enough for me on a fingerless mitt!

and cotton to boot. Me hates the cotton ends the most, they like to slither themselves back out!

(how was Deadwood?)

Might have to give this one a try! :) Looks like a great way to use up the ends of other balls of dishcloth yarn.
