My third attempt, and I actually followed a pattern! Can you see the ribbing? I found this pattern for a simple dishcloth, and it turned out pretty well (once I figured out how to switch between knit and purl in the same row - thank goodness for YouTube!). I'm not sure it was really the right yarn for a dishcloth, but I had fun making it anyway. And I'm sure if I don't use it as a dishcloth, Annika will find some other use for it!
I'm not sure what my next project will be, but I think it's time to buy some different yarn! I'm getting a little tired of looking at green and purple. :)
