I cast on for Block #1 from this book. 
I have been enjoying making one large block for each of the Tunisian Crochet patterns so I wanted to do something similar in knitting.  I am going to work my way through the book just for the pleasure of it!  The first chapter is called Knits and Purls and again, I thought this pattern would work for a dishcloth because it is reversible!   The yarn is soft, the 8 row repeat easy to remember and the size of the work comfortable to hold after hauling the Casablanca afghan around on my lap 
which adds up to a relaxing few hours! 
 I hope to finish the block today!
 Look at the texture! 
 I am using DK weight yarn and #7 needles.  


  1. That is a great idea. You learn so much from projects like that. That's why I started Dear Jane. Each block teaches me different construction methods-and patience.

  2. I finally picked up the knitting last night. We drove the boat out for a day and while in the car there and back I knit on little bit's birthday sweater. If I'm not careful I won't have it done by November! LOL Lovely projects all, and I can identify with the size between afghan and squares!

  3. Beautiful knitting! When I was in college I bought a similar pattern book and knit all the squares. I think I sold them in a yard sale years ago.

  4. That will be a great dishcloth. Lots of texture for scrubbing when you need to. That's going to be a fun project, working your way through the book.

I hoped to make 10 yesterday but I will make the other three today.  Nice to have the house deep cleaned--all corners tamed and the other sl...
