Knitted wash cloth therapy

Even a small project is helpful in chasing away the blues while sitting with or tending to a patient.   This week I knitted 2 wash cloths to chase away the Covid blues.

For this Christmas Flower Washcloth from NobleKnits.com I used Knitpicks Dishie and a size 8 needle.   Next time with this yarn, I will try size 9 needle as it is just a smidgeon small.

Then I knit “Pumpking” by Teresa Gregorio using size 8 needles on Bernat Handcrafter Cotton.  The size knit correctly.   However, I have never tried this type of increase (KFBFB) before and I pulled the stitches a bit tight.   But it was great learning a new stitch while lowering the stress level.

What have you found helps you during these times?
