So I didn’t actually get pulled over, but I did knit furtively at every stoplight yesterday, frantically trying to get these organic cotton washcloths done for My Old Man’s older son’s birthday (tomorrow – not that he will get them then, since he lives in England!).
I love this Pakucho organic cotton – once it’s knit. It looks great and feels great, and I really like the soft natural colors it comes in. But knitting with it was kind of a pain. A bit rough on the fingers.
I did three cloths – bamboo stitch (my first time with this stitch – I really like how it looks); Chinese Waves; and good ol’ diagonal garter stitch. I added a couple of bars of Dr. Bronner’s Hemp Pure-Castile organic soap, and I thought it made a nice little bath set.
