Just Say No

One hit isn’t going to hurt you. Just try it, you’ll like it. It’ll make you have a really good time. All the cool kids are doing it.

These rationalizations, we learned in Sixth Grade Health Class, would be used later in life by “drug pushers” to entice us into a life of addiction and misery. Just say no, we were taught, no matter what they say, no matter how fun it may appear. I never found this teaching philosophy to be very compelling, until now…



Some are just too addictive to sample. Thanks to a certain knitter's recent post, I took my first hit, and now I fear I’ll be going back for more.

Knitted dishcloths? Preposterous. (Actually, mine is a washcloth for my round pink face; I just couldn’t bring myself to put handknit to pot crud.) Still, I have plenty of washcloths. There’s just something about the excuse to use garish colors, something about the pattern too, I just don’t think I can stay away.

I'm scared of knitted dishcloths. I'm determined to be a late bloomer on this one.

Uh-oh! Looks like you're in trouble now!

Sandra said...

that pattern really is a gem, isn't it?? I wasn't really a dishcloth/washcloth type of person either until I decided to give MDK a try. Yours looks great!! lovely color choices. :)

I love those colors. I think a washcloth will certainly get a lot less wear and tear, which will keep the lovely handknit going longer.

Oscar Wilde said that sometimes, the only way to deal with temptation, is to give in to it.

And see? You're washcloth is beautiful!
