Weekly Dishcloth

Queen of Hearts , by Stana D. Sotor
Lily Sugar 'n Cream, Strawberry

This week's Knit Picks dishcloth worked up quickly; I started it in the car on the way to Marshalltown and finished it on the way back, plus a row or two in between while playing cards with my parents, so maybe two and a half hours at most. Throw a long movie in, have a Netflix marathon, get someone to drive you to Cedar Rapids, make a dishcloth!

The pattern calls for the last stitch of every row to be slipped to create tidy edges. It should be noted that this only works if one slips the stitches purlwise with the yarn held in front, otherwise the yarn wraps around the edge like you're trying to do short-rows.

The yarn colorway makes me very happy. It reminds me of old-fashioned peppermint candies.
