Knit One, Wash One...

Dishcloth2

Now tell me this and tell me no more: is life too short to knit a dishcloth?

See the thing is this- I can't knit. I can cast on and I can knit the most basic stitch over and over again until I've got a scarf long enough to wrap around Doctor Who's neck a hundred times over, but I can't do that purl thing and worse than that, I can't cast off.  I have to get my Mum to do it. 

But all the cool girls are doing it, and I'm sorry enough to admit that I am so shallow, I want to be in their gang. I want to stitch 'n' bitch. (I'm so good at the bitching side of things- I just need something to do with my hands.) I want to be a KnitCase and join the ScarfDrive at SuperNaturale. So I've been rooting around the internet and I think even I can follow instructions like these on the Bernat website...

And seen as I'm the kind of girl highly liable to abandon a project midway if it get's a tad dull I am starting with the most basic of basic dishcloth patterns (Cast on 36 stitches, knit till it strikes me as square, attempt to cast off, add ribbon hanging loop and frame for the whole world to admire!) . Ok so it isn't a pattern in the pattern sense of the word, but it's a start isn't it? (Be kind: I am simple.) 

Find a myriad of dishcloth patterns here. 

P.S: Hope and pray I don't get good at this, or you will all be getting Brocante dishclothes for Christmas...
