Sometimes a knitter just needs something Simple! and a Knit Buddy!


I grabbed a few extra balls of Simply Cotton Worsted from our office stash a few days ago. I was determined to knit up a couple of washcloths for myself. I wandered around in Ravelry and found a few examples based on my beloved Log Cabin garter stitch pattern. Who knew that the Mason Dixon Knitters would have such a positive influence on the humble garter stitch.

After a nice wash and dry, the cloths became wonderfully cushiony! If you want to give it a try, cast on 15 stitches and knit 14 garter ridges. Then work the strips with 7 garter ridges each.

I am having a Knit Buddy giveaway to go along with my little bit of simple knitting. Just add a comment to this blog post and you will automatically be in the drawing. Next Thursday, October 29th, I will draw a name. The winner will receive one ball each of Marshmallow, Malted Milk, Ginger and Toffee colors of Simply Cotton Worsted.

Why have I never thought of Log Cabin Wash Cloths? So cute. I'm adding this to my list of things to make for Christmas gifts.

Kelley, Simply Cotton is fantastic for that type of cloth. Every time you wash it , it plumps up a little... little is any shrinkage (yea)... I have used it for a hooded baby blanket/spa towel and it looks wonderful! When it comes to cotton yarns, KP is the best I have ever used... fine quality, great colors, and the knitted items come out wonderful! Have I said KP "rocks"? Yes, I know more than once. --Susan
