Domino dishcloth

p7235631.jpgA few days ago I finished the dishcloth for my swap partner and hope to send it out to her within the next few days. She likes pretty much all colors and has a lot of Fiestaware in her kitchen, so I opted for yarn that includes lots of different colors yet doesn’t include migraine-inducing hues.

I really enjoyed working on this item. I learned two new techniques: domino knitting (which is loads of fun and mind-bogglingly easy) and doing a knitted-on I-cord (which is also loads of fun, but fairly time consuming–it took me about three hours to do the border on this thing). I had a little trouble at one of the corners, where I started and ended the I-cord. The instructions I had assumed that a hanging loop would be made here, but I opted to leave that off, so I didn’t quite know how to connect the ends of the I-cord. Overall, though, I am quite pleased with the result!
