A Chance to Win…

I don’t know exactly what it is about late spring and early summer, but I always decide I need to knit a few washcloths. When I found myself finished with all but one major project this week and the one project I had was not super travel friendly and my kids wanted to hit a local park to go biking after I’d already mowed the lawn and had to sit out the activity, I thought I should just go ahead and sneak in a quick wash cloth. Perfect, right?!

I’d caught wind of the Knitter’s Pride Spring Home Decor KAL/CAL and it was just the ticket to motivate me. I grabbed the new free pattern from Stefanie from over at Handmade by Stefanie, the Spa-Riffic Wash Cloth and got to work.

I did share these photos earlier in the week, but I thought Id’ share with the full story today because I just couldn’t believe how fast this knit up.

This was my quick cast-on before we left home…

And this was just about an hour and a half at the park with the kids…

And by the evening I was done.

One more photo of the finished wash cloth? Of course!

It’s awesome! It’s really large — I did an extra couple repeats just to use up the yarn I had, so it’s 11 x 11inches. It’s totally reversible, too, so I think this pattern would be awesome for wash cloths and hand towels if you just adjust sizing to your preference.

For those interested, the Knitter’s Pride Home Decor KAL/CAL runs through June 30th — pop over here to the Knitter’s Pride blog for more information on how to participate. They’ve got some pretty sweet prizes up for grabs for participants including a set of the same interchangeable needles I used for my wash cloth — the Royale Special Interchangeable Set — and a couple super awesome goodies. Definitely take a little time to check it out if you’re so inclined and maybe knit yourself your spring/summer wash cloths and maybe even win a prize doing it!

  1. It looks great, but I have to ask – which photo is closer to the IRL color? They all look pretty, but so different.

    Meant to go up into stash yesterday to dig out cotton but I got sidetracked by spinning. Tonight it is a must.
