smile: it's friday!

My finished object this week makes me smile every time I look at it ... it's the happiness wash cloth (free pattern!) by Heather Mountain (Rav link). Our knitting guild is knitting up a bunch of these using Hobby Lobby's uber-soft I Love This Cotton, and then will sew them together to make a blanket we'll donate to a local charity. I haven't knit many "picture" dish cloths like this one before, but now I'm hooked! There are soooo many funny and cute patterns out there.

Here are some that have caught my eye ... the next time I need some easy knitting, I'm casting on for one of these:

Be My Dishcloth, by KrisKnits (another freebie!)

Pig Out! by Elaine Fitzpatrick (free!)

Happy Penguin by Alli Barrett

Little Miss Happy Flower by Rachel Van Schie

  1. Your dishcloths look great! Love them all!

  2. I love these washcloths: how cheery to wash your face with one of these in the morning :)

  3. I love the motifs on these cloths... it's addictive, isn't it?

  4. Love the dishcloths. Especially the smiley face and the hearts.
