Here's the progress on "designing my own dishcloth" based on the pattern of the lace shawl I finished a couple weeks ago.
The first dishcloth is all done.
The design is charted and I just have to get my handwritten scribbles transferred into a more legible typed version.
The second dishcloth is still a 'work in progress.' This pattern is a little more complicated and I have to slow down my knitting enough to chart and write out each row as I knit it. I should be able to get it done next week sometime.
Penny is usually sitting somewhere nearby to oversee my progress..... although she usually just hops on my warm chair cushion when I get up to re-fill my coffee cup. She also enjoys playing with my pen or the little white-out cartridge.
I'm finding that designing knitting patterns is fun, but actually getting them written down and printed is turning out to be the difficult part.
