My first flower cloth

My first flower cloth

Originally uploaded by boadiccea

Lots of knitting firsts, lately! Today I cast on my first toe-up 2 socks on 2 circulars, and last night I finished a face cloth that was done in the round on circulars, then switched to dpns at the end, and that was a first for me as well.

I’m a tad bit disappointed that my flower doesn’t look more like the picture in the pattern, but that’s not the first time that has happened to me. I think my flower looks more like a starfish, don’t you?

Regardless, it was fun making it, fun learning something new, and I have to say, that Crystal Palace cotton chenille is soft soft SOFT!!! My face quite enjoyed it’s wash, last night.

I think next time I make a flower cloth, I’ll try another pattern I found. If it comes out starfish-y again, then I’ll know it’s something I’m doing and not the pattern.

  1. it does look like a starfish. I like starfish 🙂 at least it doesn’t look like a waffle or rock or something.

    I want to hear more about the socks! inquiring minds want to know!

  2. I like it, because I like all things that come from the Sea. Yes, it does indeed look like a starfish, but I’m with Annette- I think that’s cool. 🙂

  3. @Annette: Take a look at my Ravelry projects — I show the pattern I’m using, the thread, and you can see the very beginnings of the toeses. 🙂

  4. Definitely starfish-shaped. I still like it! It’s sorta like the petal baby bib I’m about to cast on – it looks like it’s the same technique. I guess it was a long cold autumn. Lots of baby showers coming up.

  5. My aunt sent me the Crystal Palace Cotton Chenille in Spring Picnic. Looking forward to a flower (or starfish) washcloth. Yours is beautiful.
