Hello! I am a beginner knitter, so I am sorry if this seems like a silly question. In this pattern I am doing: http://www.knittingknonsense.com/dollydolphin.html When it says slip 1, do I slip it knitwise or purlwise? Thanks!

If the pattern doesn't tell you which way I would slip knitwise. Actually I think that is standard for that type of decrease.

That's how I used to do it and I would have issues (like on Lion Brand's Bunny Blanket thingy)- and was told I was doing it wrong, that slips are purl wise.

Ah...thank you. Well, I did some more research and the stitch should be slipped purlwise, with the yarn in back.

^Yep, it's purlwise.

I've made the love cloth before. I did it with acryllic, not really wanting it to be anything, so it pretty much just stays in my stash, looking pretty.

I'm doing the Horseshoe Lace dishcloth right now in S&C in Hot Pink. I like it! Maybe I can finish it before I shower tonight? I don't know! I like it though.

I'm not washing dishes with it though. Washing me! I like making wash cloths. They're so quick and easy and pretty cheap if you use S&C!

I did the same pattern as Zaftig - thought it would make a great v-day gift.  
Unfortunately, it doesn't show up well because of the variegated yarn (I'm sure it has nothing to do with my ability Smiley).  Oh well!

BTW - love everyone's work!

busgirlbrown, it didn't stand out too well in the pale pink for me either.... but we know it's there and thats what counts hey?!  Grin I'm using the same design for something else I'm making in a deep pinky red and it stands out really well with the darkr colour.
I'm 2 sections into the round washcloth, my hands were hurting last night so i couldn't knit  Sad
