It's all Ravelry's fault


So, I'm minding my own business, checking out the pages over on Ravelry when someone posts a picture of some Peaches & Cream dishcloth yarn. It caused me such a dilemma. I had sold off most of my dishcloth yarn some months ago and thought I'd give that fad a rest for a while.

Alas, I couldn't resist those colorways


Those people over at Elmore-Pisgah must have used magic to process my order because I got my package in just a couple of days. And, to make matters worse, I learned that their plant is in North Carolina, the grand state where my son's tuition payments goes! Now, I can't wait for Homecoming weekend!

I did set some rules with this repeat fad. I must churn out a bunch now. So check out what I've done so far. Instant gratification love:

I made several Valentine's themed cloths to give away



Mary Anne over on Miss Wolly Knits shares her lovely Feather and Fan recipe. It is a breeze to knit. I could make these all day.

I've always admired Hakucho's ball band cloths so I thought I'd give it a try myself



Chairpads are now in my future!

I have found so many things on Ravelry...I've just scratched the surface. I read somewhere that there's a destash group too.

Monica said...

I love the colors! Hm, those are tough to resist, I am going to explore.

Oh, boy you're hooked ;)

Dishcloth knitting is really good for instant gratification. All your cloths look wonderful.

If I ever was that close to going to E & P...I think I would think I died and went to heaven. Maybe I can talk one of the next two to go to college to head south ...like N. Carolina :)
Can't hurt, right?

These are all so pretty. You're doing your job, making room for more Ravelry temptation.

Mary Anne said...

Beautiful colours and beautiful cloths! I love them all.

hope said...

Wow! You've been very productive. Those colors are beautiful, I'm glad I didn't see them. But now that I have....I must be strong, I must be strong.

del said...

LOL, yes, I remember when you sold your cotton yarn some months back. This is funny. Darn that Ravelry.

But those colors are beautiful...I can see how someone would be tempted. Nice dishcloths!

Oh no! Don't remind me of my Peaches and Cream stash. A big box came just as I had overdosed on dishcloths. I love that ball band with the white. Oh no, no, no, noooooo!

Beate said...

Know the feeling of getting hooked- I am too in the mood for small projects, a quick fix, .
those colours are so jummy-

Kewl dishcloths! I love them myself. It is hard to resist the colors. I'm always at danger if I stop in at Hobby Lobby.

Gorgeous!

Awesome Mom said...

Those are neat!!! I will have to add some of those patterns to my already bloated queue.

Ava said...

Love those colorways! I can only find Sugar and Cream here. Suppose it's just as well, I've already knit more dishcloths than I can use in a lifetime!

Virtuous said...

Too much!! U you know I am all about the instant gratification as well!!

Luv the last dishcloth!

Happy Love Day!

Barbara DeMarco-Barrett said...

Love the pattern. Where'd it come from (the heart)?

Happy V day!

Patricia said...

Don't ya just love Ravelry. I am so addicted that I neglect my blog reading.

Sheila said...

Lovely dishcloths and agree there's nothing like instant gratification.

AR said...

Busy knitter! I love to do dishcloths, cuz they're so quick, and the colors get me every time. Your dishcloths are cute!

Ravelry takes up way too much of my time.

Cute cloths and colors.
