You know that project you have laying around for ages and keep telling yourself you’ll get to and then forget about until you wake up in a cold sweat after having a nightmare about it?

… no? Wait, that’s weird?

Hot Stripes Dish Towels and Dishcloths

According to my ravelry page, I cast these on in September. Back then Christmas knitting was something I could ease into, and I knew two special ladies that would love a set of my Hot Stripes Kitchen Towels. In a million years, because Christmas was a million years away, and I had a lot of other things to work on in the mean time.

One Hanging Towel, Two Dishcloths Each

Then about a week ago I was looking at my holiday knitting list, thinking I was doing pretty well, and saw this WIP. WHERE?! WHAT?! HOW?! I dug a finished hanging towel and half a dishcloth out of the bottom of a knitting bag I hadn’t looked at in 2 months and went into Hulk-smash mode to finish the rest.

Ready to Wrap!

These are really fun to knit, if I do say so myself. I used all the original colors from the pattern because they’re, well, really hot. So if you are looking for a last minute gift, hit this pattern up! You can knock out a dishcloth in about 4 hours, and a dish towel in about 5.
