Julia and I both seem to be overcoming our dishcloth procrastination at precisely the same time.  I bought some super cheap kitchen cotton at Michaels literally years ago and it rotted at the back of a closet…until Friday evening.  I started with one lowly little waffle cloth and suddenly I had somewhere to channel my lonely boredom.

Seven dishcloths!  Jealous?

And now I can kick myself well and good for being a tard and putting them off so long.

Pattern: Waffle Knit Dishcloth and Double Bump Cloth (which are almost identical patterns but I got a bit bored on that last one)

Yarn: Bernat Handicrafter Cotton and Scheepjes Cotton 8

Flickr seems to have dulled my colours.  Does that ever happen to anyone else?

The funny thing is, I should have known how quick dishcloths are to make – I made some for my mom a few mother’s days ago (yeah – just what every mum wants – cleaning supplies).  I think those were a little fiddlier and that turned me off.  I never took photos of them but I remember one was this.  Another amusing note: the purple / blue held togehter is the Cotton 8, which was one of the first yarn I ever bought in November or December 2004.  The ridiculous thing?  I bought it to make wrist warmers.  Out of cotton.  I was dumb.

In continuance of the pastel Easter cheesy craftiness I also blew some eggs on Friday night.

I heart glitter.

And arranged them in a supercheese fashion:

Awwwwww

What can I say? I love Easter and I love glitter.  Especially this Martha Stewart glitter.  Being a teacher in the public school system I’m used to dollar store chopped tinsel but this stuff is like multi-faceted pixie dust.  As a true child of the eighties I approve.  The instructions are here.  But please don’t come crying to me when you find sparkles in your cereal.
