I posted a FREE knitting book for Kindle for today...grab it before it's gone!  (Note: you do not need to have an actual Kindle.  If you have a smartphone, you can download a Kindle reader app for FREE...if all you have is a PC, you can download to your PC...and I believe there may also be a way now of completely bypassing any kind of reader app to read directly online - though please don't quote me on that, as I'm not sure.  I find the PC reader to be quite decent for pattern content...since I don't own a Kindle, I can't say how well it works...but I would think a smaller screen would make patterns kind of difficult to read.)

But I am not made out of money, and I don't wanna pay $35 for it, knowing that I could possibly make one my self.. :p

So said so done..

I posted four FREE knitting patterns for Kindle for today...grab them before they're gone!  (Note: you do not need to have an actual Kindle.  If you have a smartphone, you can download a Kindle reader app for FREE...if all you have is a PC, you can download to your PC...and I believe there may also be a way now of completely bypassing any kind of reader app to read directly online - though please don't quote me on that, as I'm not sure.  I find the PC reader to be quite decent for pattern content...since I don't own a Kindle, I can't say how well it works...but I would think a smaller screen would make patterns kind of difficult to read.)

Sherry,

I hope the curl does come out in the wash!  Smile  I can't wait to try it.  I haven't done much since yesterday...it mostly depends on what's on TV.  That's my favorite time to work, because it's my "down time."  LOL, I need a computer like on Star Trek, where it does what I tell it, so I can crochet and do computer work at the same time.  Why, I could have the computer type this and be crocheting those dishcloths right now!  Laughing  Sigh.

I noticed a curling problem with the dishcloth I decided is not going to be given as a gift.  It's very pretty, the aforementioned snowflake, and I made it only about 6", rather than the 9 or 9 1/2" it's supposed to be by leaving out the last (unnecessary, IMO) row, but I also didn't like it because it is all curly, and there's no way to give it as a gift without first washing it.  Undecided  And it was way too labor intensive to make it three more times.  The one that was supposed to have almost petal-like edges doesn't curl tremendously.  Smile  So I'll make three more of that pattern, for sure.

So I'm still only one down, 15 to go.  Undecided  My purpose in moving on to the snowflake was not to do the same two in a row, but to mix it up so I don't get bored doing the same one, over and over again.

LOL, I'm glad to know cursing is a good way to work off negative energy!  I always give the reason (and this is true, confirmed by real studies!) that cursing helps relieve stress.  Smile  Maybe I need to step it up so I can be completely calm all the time.  Wink

That's what I think about those, ugh, 9 - 10" dishcloths!  Most people's hands aren't that huge!  Why on earth would anyone need something so big?!  I agree with you 100%...5 1/2 - 6" is just fine...anything else would be much too unwieldy, IMO.

I do the same...use dishcloths once before they go into the laundry, as well...you're just going to put soap on them, anyway, so why not use them before laundering?  And I also agree that it's better not to waste the yarn, to get "two for the price of one" so to speak.  Anything else would be a complete waste.  Even sponges are not 10", and certainly aren't square 10"...if they were, they wouldn't be very useful for dishwashing.  I'm guessing sponges are about 3" x 5".  And while it's true a dishcloth is flatter, IMO, that makes it much more flexible, anyway.

Argh, yarn caculations are so difficult!  I buy extra, extra, extra.  I don't remember if I mentioned the woman who wants towel toppers...she wants four of them, so I told her, buy four skeins of cotton, and anything that's left can be returned with the receipt.  I always try to figure over...it's awful to get stuck without enough!  Yell  Especially since I've had trouble with dye lots...with the "no dye lots" being terribly unreliable, as we discussed before.  Yell

I bet the scarf will be much appreciated!  Kiss
