My husband, The Shaker, some times has to travel here in Europe as well as the US. Yesterday, while I was knitting, he ever so politely said, “Can you make me a washcloth to travel with?” Huh? I guess so. Which I have to say .... I have never paid attention to the washcloth in European/US hotels to as I travel with the wash scrunchy (does that nylon thing have a name?). The Shaker said this: in the US the hotels give you a washcloth in the bathroom but here in Europe they don’t.
I have been on the hunt for a skull and crossbones dish/washcloth. I have found a few – some from Raverly and some from a google search. One was huge and almost took a whole skein of cotton yarn. It looked a hand towel to dry your hands with instead of a washcloth. And no, I am not ripping those stitches out! So yesterday I spent the afternoon creating a revised version of skull and crossbones. I am not sure if I can take any credit for it as it’s compiled from 3 different patterns from 3 different designers. So if it turns out right, I will post it here but probably not on Raverly. I don't want to piss off anyone!
Here’s the graph so far. Today I will start the knitting and the written pattern directions!
