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 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!
