School holidays and morning soccer clinic for the boy have made mornings a slower, girlier affair around here. Extended pyjama wearing, hula hoop play and some mother daughter knitting have been some highlights. Not such a highlight was catching a cold. But not to worry.
I have started knitting some more of these dishcloths from this yarn. I've made many of these over the past few years for myself and as part of christmas or house warming presents. My old ones (made almost 2 years ago) ones are still going strong, but I find I really need a few more to add to my collection. I don't usually use them for the dishes, but for wiping benches. They've outlasted any other cloths I have and are just a nice little touch of handmade for everyday. I usually throw them in the wash every other day with the teatowels. Occasionally I boil them in a saucepan to freshen them up.
Julia has been learning to knit these past few months and she has mastered the basic knit stitch. Things sometimes go a little awry when starting a new row, but we are getting there. I love that it is something she wants to do. I wonder what kind of knitter I would be today if I had started at her age.
Hope your week has got off to a good start.
