Snowflakes: each is unique and beautiful. I think they’re one of those parts of winter that will always seem a little bit magical. I’ve designed this snowflake dishcloth to bring a fun touch of seasonal warmth into your kitchen, something to cheer you up even after the holiday season is over -- and you still have to do dishes.
Bonus? The dishcloth is both decorative and useful!
Time to do the dishes. Ugh. You *hate* doing the dishes. There's always dishes needing washed. (How is it that someone *always* seems to have another dirty dish to add to the sink as soon as you've finished washing all the dishes?) And if there aren't, the dishwasher is needing unloaded. It's a frustrating, endless cycle.
And while a dishcloth won't magically take care of the dishes for you, it *will* add a touch of handmade cheer and joy to the dreaded chore.
The Lacy Snowflake Dishcloth adds a piece of wintry happiness to the kitchen, whether it's acting as decor or a cleaning tool. And, while you might still hate doing the dishes, you'll them a little bit less.
The Lacy Snowflake Dishcloth is a simple, engaging knit that requires some attention and counting, especially at the start of a new "arm" of the snowflake.
However, every wrong side row is a "rest row," where minimal concentration is required while you purl back across the dishcloth.
This is the perfect knit for evenings when you want something simple to wind down with, but you still need something to keep your mind occupied enough that it won't wander to everything that went wrong during the day. It's also perfect for TV knitting when the show doesn't require 100% of your attention.
