I recently joined a "Dishcloth Knit Along Group" (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MonthlyDishcloths/ ) This is how it works. The leader posts a pattern but only gives you 10 rows a day and no picture. Therefore you don't know what it will look like until you are done. This is my first KAL project. It was great fun to have everyone trying to guess what mom was knitting. It turned out to be a unicorn. I think I am going to use this as a facecloth and see how we like the homemade face cloths. There are two patterns per month: one at the beginning of the month and one in the middle. Fun stuff!
