Simple Pleasures

I haven't been doing much knitting lately, mostly due to the utter exhaustion that always accompanies my first trimester of pregnancy.

However, as soon as I hit the beginning of the second trimester my energy levels resume their usual manic/multitasking pace.  Unfortunately I've been quite sick, so I haven't been exactly getting much done, but I was able to whip out two much-needed dishcloths.

(I was using the lack of available clean dishcloths as an excuse to ignore the state of the kitchen.  It was scary, my friends, scary.)

There's something peaceful and relaxing about knitting something as simple as a garter stitch dishcloth.  I have several whopper big Christmas knitting projects on the needles that are time consuming to finish, so whipping out something quickly was soothing for the soul.

(Other people go to therapy.  I knit.)

Of course now I have no excuse for ignoring the kitchen any longer.

Drat.  Maybe I'll give the dishcloths away . . .
