bamboo lace dishcloth
it wasn't until I had this on my blocking board that I finally remembered what the yarn was...bamboo!!!! anyway, it was fun to knit & the blocking wires are homemade & I'm quite proud of that because I really do not have the money to buy a set for 25 plus dollars. the blocking board is nothing more than a piece of styrofoam that has a checkered cloth over it. the cloth makes it easy to even things out & they are all equal sizes so you can really shape your finished item. I could have said "garment" but I never liked that word. ever. do you have a word that you've never liked...that just rubbed you the wrong way???
