Something Little and Maybe Silly

After the Ravellenic knitting, the only thing I have on the needles is my Fair Isle vest and I’ve got to sit down to that when I have some quiet time when I restart it.  (Quiet time = no school questions and Max is asleep.)  I have the hexipuffs, but I wanted something else.  It needed to be small, portable and brainless.  I decided to knit a washcloth!
No, I haven’t lost my mind (although there are days where it’s close).  I just need a little extra help exfoliating my face at this time of year.  I have had a Clarisonic for about seven years now and it’s made a huge difference for my skin (my skin is super oily, but gets dry in the winter), but I need a little extra scrubbing during the winter.  We only have a few washcloths and I don’t want to do laundry every few days, so I decided to try making one and see how I like it.  This is linen stitch, which makes a very smooth texture on the front (the top picture) and a nubby, bumpy one on the back (the picture above).  I only had to memorize two patterns (a RS and a WS) and it can be knit without thinking.  If I like it, once it’s finished, there may be more washcloths!

Don’t worry, there will also be more exciting things around here too.  If you’re curious, the project page is here.

Not at all silly, I love washcloths. I gave each of my daughters and their husbands and children washcloths for Christmas, along with handmade soaps from Etsy. They stay looking good for years.
