It’s a long commute to work and since I carpool, and don’t have to drive the majority of the time, I can do things like knit. It’s a good use of time and keeps me busy.
I got this pattern off Pinterest somewhere, and it sounded easy: basketweave dishcloth. Knits and purls, nothing fancy, back and forth, back and forth. The hardest part was just remembering which row I was on. I solved that problem by putting a checkmark next to the row I completed. It was going along smoothly, I thought, until I got to the end.
I didn’t do a proper finish on the end, even though I did bind off properly, but the tail, I tried to weave into the binded off yarn. That was not the way to do it.
It was good practice though, and if nothing else, it still serves as a dual purpose gift wrap/washcloth that can be used.
