2008’s First FO is Quite Unimpressive


Told you.

Knittingwise, there’s nothing to it.  Yes, it’s the world’s largest swatch, aka a washcloth.  (Surprisingly hard to photograph, too.)  But the yarn is nice, Crystal Palace Cotton Chenille, courtesy of The Stitchingnut.  Good stuff–it doesn’t make fuzz continuously like some chenilles, and knitted up like this it has a rather luxurious feel.  Thanks, Stitchingnut!  This will be packaged up with some fancy-schmancy soaps and given to a friend.  I think she’ll like it since she’s very into such niceties.

  8. It really does make a luxurious wash cloth. I use one that I made (Petals from Knitted Gifts)(I think) all the time just for my face. I love it! Like these:

    I’ve made some of those daisy shaped face clothes from the stuff & they’ve been a big hit. What a lucky friend.

    I’ve got some of that, washcloths! Never thought of it.
    Cute FO!
    Did you fix the stitch or have to tink back on the shawl?

    I keep wanting to try the chenille. And I had that same gifting idea. I’m going to have to try that.
