Early in my knit blog lurking days I saw someone equate reading & clicking through blogs to Alice going down the rabbit hole. There are times when I start reading blogs where one click leads to another…and another…and another…here’s an example of how all the clicking works together…

I can’t remember how I came across the link to Melissa’s dishcloths…Lolly’s recent post had a link to Whip Up…this week they had a post about Handmade valentines which had a picture & link of the same dishcloth pattern…I followed that link & discovered Natalie had made the dishcloth as part of the Monthly Dishcloth Knit-a-long. In 1997 my grandma taught me how to knit using her basic dishcloth pattern from Lily Sugar’n Cream yarn – this knit-a-long seemed like just the one for me to join. So I’ve joined up & look forward to trying new dishcloth patterns each month!

(I’ve continued to knit a few more Valentine dishcloths this week – I think a couple will stay home with me.)

With regards to another joining project…I have now joined Team Midwest in the Knitting Olympics. Fellow Midwesterners who browse my blog, check out the Team Midwest blog for details about how to join the team!


  1. Oh, the amazing time sink of the web… Welcome to Team Midwest!

  2. Hi Amy!
    Just wanted to stop by your blog. I also recently joined the DC KAL. I’ve made 4 DC’s in the last week too. Love em! Now I’m working on a pair of socks…but that’s another addiction πŸ˜‰
    If you are interested in reading my intro, it was message 5182 on the KAL site.
    Your projects look great!

  3. There are SO many projects on the web – I could easily spend all day doing that click click thing, and not even see half of the crafty sites out there! πŸ˜‰

  4. Thanks for all the links, Amy! I clicked around and found a pattern for a Maple Leaf dishcloth – perfect gift for my Canadian Cousin-in-law. Oh, and thanks, too, for the B-Day wishes! πŸ˜€
