A finish, and some more motivation

DSCN4500Here’s my first finish of the year, which I promptly gave to my mother-in-law. She appreciates a good, hard-wearing knitted dishcloth better than anyone else I know.

Using two yarns for a single dishcloth was a sort-of new thing for me. I know I’ve crocheted 2-color dishcloths, but I don’t remember doing it in knit before. If so, it apparently wasn’t very impressive. This one, I will remember for sure.

This plaid pattern is from a Leisure Arts book I’ve used before. From straight on, it’s just pretty, but when you get a view from the side, you see the interesting texture, too.

DSCN4506I think this pattern would look even more striking in higher-contrast colors. I may do this one again in cream and emerald green–both of which I do have on hand, so that would totally be in keeping with my new de-stashing goal.

Speaking of which, I guess it’s time to begin the 2015 destashing tally. Here goes.

for self/family: 1

for charity: 0

Besides the de-stashing goal, I’m finding get ‘er done motivation from the 2015 Messy to Classy link party.

I haven’t taken any pictures yet, and once I do, it will take a whole bunch of finishes before anyone else would be able to discern a difference between my “before” and “after.” But I do love the idea of Preeti’s link party and will be checking in regularly to see everyone’s progress.

Go, classy crafters and fellow de-stashers alike!

What crafting link parties/blogs/forums keep you motivated?
