My dishes are gonna be soooo clean

Meet my new obsession.
I don't know what it is about these. These Mason Dixon dishcloths are addictive little things! Wow. Could it be that they can be whipped up in an evening? Could it be that they are terribly useful? Could it be that you can get the yarn is such phenomenal colours to spice up your otherwise plain-soft-green kitchen? Who knows!?!? But over the past few weeks I have been cranking these things out like dishwashers are going out of style.
They make great little gifts and are ever-so-useful.
I knit things in obsessive crazes and this appears to be one of them. My usual sock fetish seems to have subsided for the time being but I have faith that once the Christmas season rolls around, I will hop right back on that bandwagon.

So, having knit numerous, numerous dishcloths as of late, I decided to switch it up the other night. I just didn't want to stop knitting and at the end of the evening... I ended up with THIS.


See what I mean??? It's SO FUN. Ugh.
There is a significant size difference between this lovely creation and the above ones and it is...
SO handy! Wow. Just wow.

While strolling through a Value Village in Quebec City last summer, I stumbled across a fantastic bag of buttons for a whopping $1.99 and of COURSE splurged. What did I find in that little bag of buttons you ask??? This wonderful vintage creation.


I think that in this case, you may have to trust my word and not my camera on it... but it's just as wonderful and vintage-y as you had hoped. I'm sure of it.

So ladies and gentlemen, I think that I have found a use for that whopping bag of buttons.
Place your orders now.

Hi Lynn, I'll be making socks (for Hannah) with my self dyed yarn. I saw your wonderful blue sleeveless top before, it's really great. I'll be back to see what you are up to. Oh, and I'm over my MD ballband dishcloth phase, but it was fun while it lasted.
