I think I would find it challenging to knit even a dish cloth with this level of detail. You can sure do some amazing pieces.

You shouldn't have any trouble with it. I took the wavy pattern from Ribbons and Lace.

You have such a wonderful talent, Marg! Beautiful...and you designed it yourself, right?
comment by jerms on Mar 23, 2011 10:41 AM ()
Thank you Jeremy. Yes, it's my own design.
reply by nittineedles on Mar 23, 2011 12:39 PM ()
Oh! It's so pretty! I love those picots and how the edge has that ruffle effect, and the orange section, which I take it is just how the variegated yarn happened to fall on those shorter rows. My gosh, Marg. You must be strutting around the house in it unable to stand yourself.

I am rather pleased with it.

I am guessing "easy" is a subjective term here.
comment by tealstar on Mar 22, 2011 1:00 PM ()
I was able to hold up my end of a conversation and watch TV while knitting this. That's my definition of easy.
