The second game of Quidditch is on in the HPKCHC, and the assignment this time was to pair up with another crafter and each make the same pattern but each modify it in some way. I partnered up with a student from Slytherin (interhouse unity!) and we agreed to both modify and make this Bunny Dishcloth.
Of course I thought, how can I make this pattern more nerdy and cool? So I charted out a quick TARDIS and set to knitting. It quickly became clear that the TARDIS was going to end up looking squished. And then it became clear that I was going to run out of yarn before I finished. (Note: remember when I said I wasn’t knitting any more dishcloths and was putting the remaining yarn in the Goodwill bag? Well I couldn’t bring myself to donate it and had to knit it up myself. I can’t bear to let any yarn go unknit, apparently.)
So, this being a modification challenge anyway, I decided that it would be a badge-shaped dishcloth. I bound off at what looked like the right place, and then undid some of the beginning rows to make a flat edge. It’s not a piece I’m particularly proud of, but it will still be useful because really, a dishcloth can be whatever shape and it doesn’t matter at all if the motif isn’t what I had pictured. So, you win some, you fail some. I’d count this as a half-fail.
