I started the first of 12 face cloths that I'm making for my brother for next Christmas.. The pattern is the LB pattern.. very simple only a 4 row repeat...

Cast on 46

Row 1 & 2: Knit

Row 3 & 4: K 2; k 1, p 1 * repeat to the last 2 stitches, k 2

Knit a square, end with Row 2

Good for you, GA. I might give that one a spin. I'm at a point where I don't have much power of concentration, but I still want to knit. That would be perfect.

Thanks for sharing GA. That is one that I could work on with morning coffee. Am trying knitting with my morning coffee instead of a smoke and really need something that doesn't take much concentration.

Hey Grannieanne
My daughter wants to learn to knit...I wonder if she could do that as a starter. I would love for her to knit as I have always done it. She is in her 30's and has never knit but guess it is never too late to learn.

I keep dripping at my daughter to knit...she is also in her 30's.....so far she hasn't been bitten by the bug.

Tay....good luck with the battle. I'm watching my husband try to quit and it isn't pretty.

Rita.. I think these would be a great way to learn... still useful, even if you do mess up...

I've finished my first... and started on 2 of 12....

And you get to finish something quicker than if you started with a scarf.

I made a dishcloth this afternoon. So quick and easy. I like that pattern. The cotton was a red white and blue graduated color. Looks great. It was a new ball I bought just recently of the Sugar n Cream. Actually it is called self striping. I have some in shades of blue so think I may do that tonight. Sort of addictive.
Thanks again for the pattern

GrannieAnnie,

Are you doing yours all in the same pattern, same color or all different?

They will all be alike... I posted the pattern.. I like it because it is elegant in its simplicity, and it's reversible...

This past Christmas, my brother asked for, and got, several white bath sheets and hand towels... I thought a set of matching knitted face cloths in white would be just the touch of the extraordinary that they needed...

His birthday is in July.. I might send some then.... Idea

To Tay...If your morning coffee is a huge trigger, try drinking it in a different place, even from the other side of the table is different enough. Maybe try a flavored creamer. Anything to make the experience just a bit different and fool your brain and not trigger a craving.

Thanks for the recommendation juniperloops. That is one change that I have made that has helped tremendously - I have my "craft room" with TV, rocking chair. In morning, after shower, I take cup of coffee into my room (there is no smoking in house). Find that is easier than sitting in kitchen, right next to back door. Have gotten to point where mornings aren't too bad. One step at a time.

My daughter is in her thirties, too...I tried to teach her to knit earlier, but it did not take well...recently, she has started up again (with refresher) and has done lots of dishclothes to learn stitches and patterns...also scarves...she just did a sweater and was very disappointed...she is bosomy and when she adjusted that area, it made the neck too big...so if anyone has hints about that, she would love to hear them...

So, just keep knitting in front of your daughters, and showing her patterns...maybe she will get infected.
