When It Rains. . . . .

. . .Lenora gets to knittin'.  Last Friday found me in Boston, ready to play tourist but sidelined by rain.  Pouring rain.  Didn't bother me in the least.  I always travel with a back up plan.  Naturally my back up plan involves yarn.

Lately, perhaps due to other summer activities, small projects that are quick to finish have been flying off needles and hook.  This is a dolphin theme washcloth for daughter #1 - she who crochets.  She can make anything she needs in the way of personal items and  does.  Often. 

But this is a dolphin!  And she who crochets loves dolphins.  And it is her birthday month.  (here at Maison de Francois Stewart birthdays are so important that just one day is not enough celebration - we drag it out)

The facts:
  • Dolphin Dishcloth pattern can be had free here.  Yes, it is accessible via Ravelry.
  • Yarn is Cotton Twist from here.  It is very soft and has less "drag" than some other "kitchen cotton" has.  It is a worsted weight and suitable for all manner of items.
  • Needles used are smaller than one might expect.  Did this on a US 3 and it is still a nice 6" x 8" size.
There was something quite satisfying about knitting a dolphin whilst watching the rain fall.   I hope that daughter #1 likes it - even if it is knit and not crochet.
