Rosy Tulip

Remember I said I made 10 dishcloths in 7 days and still had 1 on the needles? Well this is the one that was on the needles. Now I know that in the mind of an organized person things would have been presented differently. I would have shown you the dishcloths I made for Hilary in the order I made them for her. However, and here's where I'm going to make a confession ~ I just don't roll that way. Never have and sadly ... probably never will! I kinda forge ahead in life rather willy~nilly flying by the seat of my pants. You know, doing things as the mood strikes me. And today I was in the mood to show you THIS pretty little dishcloth I JUST finished. Oh! And by the by ~ I'm not even giving this one to Hilary. Nope! Think I'll give it to Chelsea {daughter #2} instead. Gabby is absolutely NUTS about all things PINK especially if there are flowers involved {got a bit of her Grammy in her!}.So I thought she might enjoy helping Mommy wash dishes with this one.
I love the little eyelet holes created by the k2tog and ssk stitches that end up looking like a tulip in the center. So sweet!
And for a simple touch of texture around the border a moss stitch {or seed stitch} is my old standby favorite. It's quick and easy to do and most pleasing to the eye :)

Today's Happy Thought~ "When at last I took the time to look into the heart of a flower, it opened up
                                            a whole new if a window had been opened to let in the sun."

  3. Love your pink tulip! The seed stitch frames it beautifully.

  4. That is the prettiest dishloth! handknit dishcloths are such a lovely way to make a chore so much more enjoyable.

    1. Thanks Julie!
      And WELCOME!
      I just love handmade dishcloths. I always make a stack every summer for myself and since last summer both of my daughters have gotten married so now I am whipping some up for their kitchens as well!

  6. Oh gosh on my. I hope you will put some of these lovelies in your shop. Tulips are my preferred motif. Mr. Lee is Indo-Dutch. My wedding band is etched with tulips. My beta blockers aren't working I am so excited.

    I always loved washing dishes not drying but I bet you could make even drying fun.

    Thank you for sharing.
