Washcloth KAL/CAL : All Done!

Yay!  The Washcloth KAL/CAL is all done!  I knit eight of them!

Did anyone out there in Internet Land knit or crochet any?  I’d love to see them if you did.  Leave a comment and let us know where we can see them.

Otherwise, I still enjoy knitting washcloths as a hot weather project.  I even bought more cotton yarn at a creative reuse store yesterday.  I made out pretty well with my haul from The Art of Recycle in Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA!  (Oh, and they are a Pokestop, too.  Yes, I’m playing Pokemon Go.)

So, I hope that you had fun with the KAL/CAL, even if you didn’t knit any and just read along with what I was doing with it myself.  Have a great weekend, everyone!

Washcloth KAL/CAL: Week 3

It’s week 3 of the Washcloth KAL/CAL!  How are yours coming along?

I finished the washcloth above at the end of last week, and am weaving in the ends on another.  The washcloth featured here is actually being put to good use today.  I’m using it as a warm compress on my left eye.  I think I have pink eye.  Bleh.

The warm water on the cloth on my eye feels good, and is much better than using a paper towel which would be my next option if I didn’t have the washcloth.  I’m glad I do.

How are yours coming along?  Anyone out there knitting along with me?  I would love to see your work.  Let me know in the comments, or put post on the Facebook page.

Let’s move on to something else for the time being.

Washcloth KAL/CAL: Week One

How is your washcloth knitting or crocheting coming along?  I completed three over the weekend.  They are show above in the featured image.  I had forgotten how much fun it is to knit these!  I’d love to see what you’re working on for the KAL/CAL, too.

As I was starting to work on these on Friday, I was racking my brain trying to remember if I had any washcloth booklets around that I could use.  Aha!  I recalled one that I had bought for $.25 at the Art of Recycle a few month ago.  Yay!

If you want your own copy, you can still get this on Amazon.

So, that’s where I am with my washcloth knitting.  I’m actually working on the cloth labeled #1 on the front cover here.  The green and purple one was done using this pattern, but I want to see how it looks in a multicolored yarn, too, so that’s what on my needles right now.

 

Washcloth KAL/CAL

It’s getting warm, and usually that means my thoughts turn to knitting projects that are smaller with cotton.  That usually mean washcloths.

I got a ton of cotton yarn at the Art of Recycle in Ephrata, PA on Monday, and have started knitting washcloths from it.

As I was brainstorming this post, I thought, why not hold a KAL/CAL (knit along/crochet along, for those who aren’t fluent in crafting lingo.)  Let’s do it!

Here are the details:

  • Knit one, or knit many!
  • Post a picture or pictures of your completed washcloths by July 15th, 2016 on the Rock Star Knitting Facebook page.
  • Be sure to like the page to keep connected!
  • After the KAL/CAL is complete, I’ll post pictures here in a blog post for everyone to check out.
  • Have fun!

I think this should be fun!  I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone creates.  Start knitting!
