Been on a small projects knitting binge the past week. I'm still working on 2 larger projects but not enough knitting done of them, so talk much about them. So here are the smaller projects:
Multidirectional Diagonal Dishcloths - Only change I made to this pattern was to add a sc border around the outside. I like how this "evens-out" the square.
Well, I can't seem to find the link for this potholder. It's crocheted and SOLID. It's a little fiddley when you start it, but I love this pattern as it is thick, solid, and really keeps the heat away.
The Double Woven Dishcloth - another favorite for using varigated yarns, easily memorized pattern and works up fast.
The Garterlac Dishcloth - I can't believe anyone does this pattern to make scarves, vests, sweaters, hats. I can get the dishcloth done, and I've done quite a few, but anything bigger.....I would definately stay as a WIP!
The Eloomanator's diagonal Knit Dishcloth. Another favorite and no I don't think the dark blue shows this pattern off to it's advantage. Again, the only thing different I do, is add a sc border to even out the square.
If you have never checked out this blog, you need to. Cathy has a ton of patterns she's designed and some wonderful cooking recipes also. These are the Plain Vanilla Coffee Sleeves. Changes? Hmmm....I did them flat by adding a stitch on each side and then sewing them up. I didn't feel like dealing with 2 circulars for such a small project, and since I don't use DPN's, and didn't have the sizes anyways, flat straights was the way for me to go. Pattern still worked out fine though. I also made them out of kitchen cotton instead of wool.
Austin loves being outside. Whether it's during the day or at dusk, he's an outside child for sure.
Don't be Afraid...............
