Happy Knitting

DSCF2362a

This isn’t much of anything, just a dishcloth or whatever, but wow, it feels nice.  The yarn is Debbie Bliss Cotton Angora in the most perfect grayish-pale blue, and is soft enough for a baby’s pajamas.  When I pick up this little project, I can feel my breathing slow down.  There’s no real pattern here; it’s just a square done in two-row seed stitch with garter stitch edges.  Just as plain as vanilla, but it makes me feel good.  You know?  I’m not sure what will happen to the angora when I wash this in hot water, which it will need after I use it to scrub scrambled eggs off a frying pan, but I have to say I’m not really worried about it.
