I know I'm alittle late in joining the fun, but I would love to join. I think I will start with the Martini pattern.

That is a fun one to do.  I love the use of stockinette and reverse stockinette in that pattern as opposed to the usual knit and purl.

I'm finishing up my last organized swap package today and then hopefully I will be able to jump back on the dish cloth wagon. I've got a LOT of cotton that is DYING to be knitted up into cloths that will be later sent out for Christmas gifts. I just really need to get my HP swap done and some personal swaps. I've been a lil under the crafty weather (where you're just bogged down from crafting...if that's possible).  Roll Eyes

Completely rainbow obsessed SAHM to 3 & hoping to add #4 to our family this fall!

Have old jeans, pillowcases, or t-shirts? I'll take them! I'm also always looking for the sleeves to women's long sleeved shirts!

Reverse Stockinette is just the purl side of stockinette. The pattern is made by having the background showing the flat/knit side and the bumpy/purl side showing for the martini glass.

My frog cloth did not have reverse stockinette as a part of the pattern.  Think of when you do some cable patterns, in some there is reverse stockinette between the cables.  If you search for the Shopping Tunic under knitting completed projects, that is reverse stockinette.  Here is the Martini cloth I did over a year ago:


A cable hat that has reverse stockinette between the cables:


Basically just turn any stockinette piece you have to the wrong side and there you will see reverse stockinette.  Not always used in a pattern, but sometimes.

Here is the Martini pattern, and it shows a picture a little better too.  http://www.purpleduckie.com/martiniglasspatternpage.htm

Well, I finished the Martini cloth. I will post a pic once i find the cord for my camera. I wish I could help explain reverse stockinette, but I'm not good at explaining things. Smiley I may do the wine glass pattern next, that way they will kind of match. I am however, liking the "bugs" alot too.
