The week has been a little stressful and by late Wednesday evening I needed something simple but interesting. Garter stitch dishcloth to the rescue! Kay gave me a ball of this really bright, really fun Sugar 'n Cream. The color name is Summer Splash and she also tucked in a printout of the free pattern.
I love how the colors stripe on their own with this pattern. I knitted with size 6 so it wouldn't be super loose. Who am I kidding? I knitted with size 6 because they were out and the size 7 were not within arms reach!
I did an awful job sewing it together. I would love to have someone show me the correct way to do this. It's pretty much all guesswork. But it will be serviceable, bright, and cheerful regardless.
The brightly-colored string worked its magic. You see I didn't even open the chocolate!
