No, it's not a new rock group. I've got a bad case of warshcloth blues. And greens. And variegateds.
It's all their fault. I bought Mason-Dixon Knitting. I fell in love with the "Ballband Warshcloth." Then I started to learn the slipstitch technique. Then I tried the Ballband. Then I started to look at the Mason-Dixon Knitalong. Then I became hypnotized by the color combinations. And then -
Reader, I haven't even finished that first one, but I have, since, bought at least 2 dozen balls of Peaches 'n' Creme warshcloth cotton, and I have to stop myself from buying more. I find myself thinking of color combinations when I ought to be paying attention to other things, such as -- oh, I don't know, cutting up vegetables?
I hope I'll finish my first warshcloth tonight. I made a couple of mistakes - I slipped with the yarn in the wrong place, probably. But oh, how I love that warshcloth, and oh, how many I want to make, just for the pleasure of seeing the colors together and watching how the slip stitches transform the bands of colors.
At least they're cotton. (In this heat, I can't even think of knitting with wool. The shawl is on hold until the nighttime temps are below 70.) At least the cotton is cheap. At least it's not illegal. (Psst - don't let THEM know about it...)
