Now onto another knitted item which I finished knitting last week which is a washcloth. I wont be using it on any dirty dishes, just dirty humans in the shower. This is made out of the cotton that Karyn sent me for Christmas. I love the colors, and it knits up quite quickly too. I have not used the other color yet, but next month I will knit that one up too. I did not use a pattern, just cast on 40 stitches and knit up what I wanted to. I think it turned out quite nice, and hopefully it will wash well too. Well that is all for today, off to do some housework whilst the kids are at school, and then to do more knitting!

Jethro Jacket Progress
This is the progress of the Jethro Jacket so far. Do you know the only problem I had with the pattern so far was the last row of the band with the increases. I could not work out how to do them the way the pattern said and get the correct amount of stitches. After ripping the row out for about the 4th time I sat down and finally got it right. So on the left is the progress of about 3 hours knitting, or maybe less. The cabled pattern is sooo easy, so if you are thinking of knitting it up go right ahead. It only has 12 rows to the pattern, and I can memorise most of the pattern already. Let's hope that this knits up nice and quickly too.
