RMT- August 2015

RMT- August 2015

Happy August everyone!!  It’s my favorite month of the year!  Why?  It’s back to school month, that special time of year when order is restored in my home, I can hardly wait.  It got real this morning when we had to be up at 6:45 am  to get the girl child to the school for her first day of band camp.  She was nervous and excited, her brother, well he just wanted to sleep in a little longer.  There is a lot more to celebrate this month, I’m having a ‘big’ birthday, and this month is the 15th anniversary of our yarn shop, The Quarter Stitch.  I can hardly believe it, what a milestone!  None of these ramblings are a hint to this months dishcloth mind you, though I will tell you all it is a simple knit/purl design and you can’t pick a bad color!!  Also it just dawned on me that this month makes TWO YEARS that I’ve been doing the Riddle Me This KAL, I’d be remiss not to thank Betty and Eva for all their contributions and help making it a success!  On to the knitting!

P1020477

How it works –

Come back to THIS post every day through August, and I’ll add two additional rows  to the pattern, listing the new rows under the date they are posted.  Don’t worry if you miss a day, I will just add the rows, never remove them.     **You may find it helpful to bookmark thedomesticdash.com, so you can find your way back!**

Use any worsted weight cotton yarn you like, (but a solid color will show up the design better).

Knit so that you create a ‘firm’ fabric, to really show off the relief stitches.  The tighter you knit the cloth, the more the design will POP!  For most of you, this will be a size 6 or 7 needle.  If you like a smaller dishcloth try using a dk weight cotton and a size 5 needle.

Just for fun, if/when you have a guess as to the design, leave a comment, the FIRST person to make an exact guess will win a prize from The Quarter Stitch in Wilmington, NC!  Good Luck!

Row 60-  *(K1, P1), repeat from * across row, end K1.

Bind Off.

KEY

B- In the next stitch, (p1, k1, p1), then pass the first and second stitch back over the last stitch.  Basically you’ve increased 1 stitch into 3, then decreased it back to one.  This will be the only ‘weird’ stitch in this cloth!  Don’t stress over this stitch, if it’s just not working for you, replace it with a Knit 1, the effect on the cloth will be the same.

    I’m amazed Claire that you got started today! I thought maybe one more day before we’d see you. And I’m so proud of myself that I had the first 6 lines done before you even posted them! yeay for me or yeay for you since you have us well trained!!! So my guesses are schoolhouse, school bell, alarm clock, math problems,schoolbus, or we could do something with harvesting a garden or canning foods. So many choices. Would you even do a porch scene for the dog days of summer? A tall glass of lemonade or iced tea?

    The picture for this cloth could be a flower – flowers for August are gladiolus or poppy. If not flowers, it could be the zodiac signs of Leo (until August 22) or Virgo (from August 23 onward). Maybe a tree – trees for the month of August are cypress, poplar, cedar and pine. Birthstone is the peridot, but I don’t see how that would work in a knit pattern! Other thoughts that come to mind are a beach scene, shark, dolphin, swimsuit, sunglasses and a school bus. We shall see as the picture grows.

    Good to see you back on line I was getting a little worried that something had happened to spoil your vacation. I hope that you and your family had a wonderful time, with lots of lovely memories to look back on as your children get older. I am going with soft ecru since it is so hot outside I thought a cool looking yarn might help. I am almost sorry that I complained about the ice we had earlier in the year. After all the rain and flooding we had we now have brown grass and heat advisories. I am thinking a beach umbrella, a school back pack or text books.

    I made the p1, k1, p1 for the B stitch all in the same stitch and it came out well – looks like a bump or bobble. I just took the instructions literally and tried not to overthink it – something I tend to do! The pic is starting to look like a side view of a whale or some other large aquatic fish with its tail flipped up.

    Happy Birthday Clair
    This month I tried something different. I “framed” the main pattern with a variegated yarn.
    It really makes the pattern stand out.

    Happy Birthday, Claire! I hope your day is filled with beautiful blessings. You bless all of us every morning with your fun pattern rows! I pass on your two rows every morning to 14 others in our Prayer Shawl Ministry group. I realize what a commitment it is for your to post the two rows every single day. I suspect you are touching many, many people. Thank you!

    Happy Birthday, Claire! May you be richly blessed this day! And the Big 40!! Wow! Although I’m way older than that but those special years seem to be overwhelming until you realize they aren’t as bad as you thought. Just think of all the wisdom you’re accumulating!!

    Claire, I hope you had a great day and a very happy birthday. I was a little behind we sent a granddaughter of to college today. I caught up on the last four rows. Enjoy being 40 and enjoy the children while they are young they grow up far to quickly.

    Could the rest of the design be a small school of fish swimming with the whale

    Or could the rest of the design be the sun shining above? Maybe a couple sea birds as well?

    Hope the first day of school was great for your children. I also hope that you had a good day because I am sure that you were anxious that the first day in a new school went well for them.

    Row 50 is it K2, P1, K1 or P9, K1, P1, K1

    Today the last row has one too many stitches in the pattern. I back the row and had two with 8 instead of two with9. I guesses a whale August.17 then tried again the 18. Never did see my guess. Shirley schmidt

    This RMT has a “whale of a tale” to tell this month being that it is a mammal and not a fish.

    I agree – I still count 42 stitches in row 50 – and don’t we usually end with k1, p1, k1? maybe the last P1 is the extra – I’m not caught up right now, so I’ll just keep watch until it makes sense!

    jonibee August 25, 2015 at 12:43 pm | | Reply

    Heather I think it’s the last 4th stitch from the end that is a “k2”-p1-k1-p1, perhaps Clare can correct this line as it has been so confusing? —

    Could that be a baby whale and mommy whale pushing it above the waves ?

    Jonnibee – I think I figured it out – the P1 at the end of that row is the extra stitch, our seed stitch border always ends k1, p1, k1 no matter which direction you go – and the k2 is a k1 followed by the start of the seed border – I’m just going to ignore the final P1 when I get to that point. 🙂 thanks for helping me see I’m not completely losing it!

    Claire, could you re-write Row 50 please since it is 42 stitches? Thank you!!! 🙂

    Claire, I am amazed that with returning from vacation and getting your children into new schools that you aren’t pulling your hair out. I admire you and hope that your children are enjoying their new schools. Thank you for all the fun you give us.

    Looks like a whale blowing water out its blowhole and waves at the top of the cloth.

    Jonibee, congratulations the yarn looks yummy. Caroline, you are a very talented young lady and I am sure that your Mother is very proud of you. Claire, thank you again and you can count me in for September. Actually Claire most Mothers are a little crazed it is a condition that goes with the job.
