Bringing Colour To My Sink

Inspired by Waldorf Mama, particularly what she made here...
 I just had to buy some amazing, gorgeous wool 
called Rico Rainbow Microfibre DK.
So excited when it came...I did not have any needles and grabbed some bamboo skewers from my kitchen!

You never knew what colour was coming next. Its fabulous!

I made this...

OK,  I know it's better close up...it's just a simple dishcloth.
I had to guess how to cast on... and yes there is one hole!

My mum will strongly testify that I hate dishcloths...so I intend to make a few of these
to brighten up my kitchen.

Big Seed liked watching me and asked if he could knit....
got to make him one of those Knitting Nancy type things when he is ready.
We did try finger knitting...but he didn't have the patience.

I think I am going to have to knit some sleeping bags for the Autumn Gnomes.

Even if you can't knit...have a browse around Waldorf Mama' photos, she has a section for knitting and yarn...and see if you don't start searching for some wool!


  1. wonderful, I love knitted dishcloths, that yarn is perfect x

  2. Hi! I am new to the blogging world and just found your blog, seems we have some common ground :) I love the colours of that dishcloth! My 5 year old daughter has just learnt how to cast on and has been practising like crazy!
