Smocked Dishcloth

Please try to contain your excitement over my completion of this ornate, difficult, and time-consuming project.

Pattern: Smocked Dishcloth
Yarn: Sugar 'n Cream in blue, leftover from my mom's striped rug
Needles: Size 7

There is not a lot to say about this dishcloth. I've been using it and it's very...washy. It's actually a little larger than I would have intentionally made it. Perhaps I should have gone down a needle size.

This little project was just a bit of a palate cleanser to transition between the Socks That Took Forever and the sweater I just started. Yes, I have begun a garment! And it is purple! (Surprise, right?) Progress shots are coming soon, I promise.

It is lovely and I have no doubt that it is incredibly "washy" :)

I may make this cloth should I ever finish the dress I am working on, not only as a palate cleanser, but as a small manageable project involving a new technique!
