Daffodil Dishcloth, and Making a Knitting Convert
A new dishcloth finished. I don't usually like purple, but this deep bluey-purple is going to appear in a whole series of dishcloths by some weird law of my attraction.
And Genevieve is always asking if she can "knit" and I usually gave her a crochet hook and a tangle of yarn. Now she has real knitting needles and pink yarn (thanks to Granny Rebecca); the colorway is "cotton candy" which shows how well Rebecca knows dear Evie.
So Evie and I sat on the sofa recently to see if we could teach her to knit. Nope. I cast on a few stitches and then tried to guide her fingers in a garter stitch. I'm going to try again, this time seeking advice from you all or a library book.
