Purled Heart dishcloth
Here's my second knit project. This one only took me 4 days to complete. Granted, I'm only getting about an hour a night to knit, but I think I'm getting quite a bit done in that short amount of time. This one was a pattern I got from the Love to Knit Dishcloths booklet by Evelyn A. Clark (published by Leisure Arts). This was #9 Purled Heart. I'm going to have to try this pattern again with a solid color to see how the heart turns out. It was a very easy first pattern, with only knit and purl stitches. Again, I used the Peaches & Creme yarn, #203 (Faded Glory). I was able to make the first dishcloth and this one both with just one ball of yarn (and still have a little left over). I can tell my stitches were too tight in places on this one, but I don't think I did too bad a job.
