Full Up

Just as a personal aside:

I might have too much on my plate.

Do you think Dish Rag Taggers would freak out over a ’round’ Official Dish Rag? With short rows maybe? Yeah, you’re probably right. Last year’s cloth doesn’t have a lot of hearts on Ravelry but it gets downloaded a minimum of once a day. I’m not sure I can beat that. I’m not sure I should try. But dish rags are on my mind.

I’ll announce dates this week.

    I’m game for anything you come up with! I loved last years cloth and I know I’ll love this one too. Even if it’s round with short rows. 😉

    I love a round cloth! I made a basic pinwheel with icord bindoff that lives under my coffee pot to catch drips.

    Of the 3 years I’ve been involved with DRT, I loved last years cloth the most. Sadly I don’t list dishrags on my Rav page or you would know how much I love it. I just love their quick knitting and have gifted about 7 so far. In the round is good. I’m a DPN girl. Not much for magic loop though. If we went in the round, I hope I would have the DPN option. Looking forward to playing again this year!

    All this enthusiasm for short rows and round cloths!

    I’m working on a typical square this morning as a back up. One of the other reasons that I am hesitating about a round one is the SEAMING! Horrors!

    Round sounds like a great challenge! A girlfriend has a round dishcloth with a ‘scrubbie’ in the middle that she wants me to duplicate. Any chance you would design a “mixed media” dishcloth? Perhaps not, that would really stress us out with netting, short rows and time constraints!

    Last year’s pattern is what I knit for my kitchen. I have knit other patterns, yet still come back to this one.

    I don’t care what the design is or if I have to stand on my head to knit it. I love love love dish rag tag. I can’t wait.

    Do it, Emily! It will just be that much more fun!
