A couple of weeks ago, I decided that I needed some new warshrags. And then I immediately got busy with other projects, because that's the way I do things. Sooner or later I come back to what I meant to do in the first place...or I don't. It's not like it actually matters to anyone, including me, whether or not I follow through on an urge to knit new dishcloths.
I don't think this is the pattern I meant to knit. But after making these two I've got the entire pattern committed to memory and I'm not learning a different one, at least not for this batch. It's a little less lacy, but it's close enough. (I think this one is the one I used last time.)
I love these round dishcloths. They're pretty and squishy and make it look like I know what I'm doing with a pair of knitting needles.
This week I'm reading As Always, Julia: The Letters of Julia Child and Avis DeVoto, which jumped into my hands from the "grab and go" shelf at the library. I have no interest at all in French food or cooking, but the life of Julia Child fascinates me. I could curl up for an entire afternoon and happily read these two women's letters about knives and whisks and frozen orange juice. It's a totally different world -- maybe because I'm such a hopeless cook myself.
I love this picture of Julia in her kitchen in France. It's so different from what we think of as a nice kitchen -- and think of everything she accomplished in it!
