Thoughts: This is my first run at this pattern, and I can see why so many people love it. You can knock one out quite easily while watching a movie, and they do look very cool (the boys were really impressed that I was knitting bricks – to quote my self-appointed Expert on Everything, “Mummy, you are just the bestest at these knittings!”). The yarn followed me home from Spotlight on Thursday. It’s a 60/40 cotton/acrylic blend and it’s quite nice to work with – I’ll be interested to see how it holds up to the sort of abuse a kitchen dishcloth takes. I can see more of these in my future.
