I wanted to use the last scraps of leftover yarn to get them out of my stash, so I made this. It's the mini version of the dishcloth. I accidentally made one too many repeats, but it turned out ok anyway. It has character, and it will be a perfectly fine coaster. Now that I... Continue Reading →
I had no idea how much I needed a quick project until this came off my needles. When work gets busy and my schedule is overwhelming it feels so good to knit something mindless that doesn't take forever. With some determination and a nice binge watch of Stranger Things this knit up in a flash.... Continue Reading →
I didn't work on my socks this weekend at all. Instead I started yet another one of these dishcloths. I really like this pattern, and this size cloth is perfect for using as a hot pad under my dinner plate. I've been using my old ones almost every day and I finally got tired of... Continue Reading →
Ok it's more of a coaster size than a full dishcloth, but it is functional. I just kept going until I ran out of yarn. It is actually a really good size for resting my phone on so it doesn't clatter on my desk.
I decided to start on this while I'm waiting for the yarn I need to finish my scarf. I'm using up leftover bits of stash yarn. I'll keep growing it until I'm happy with the size or I run out of scraps.
I really like how this one turned out. It doesn't have the weird color pooling in the middle that the last one had. I'm pretty happy to be able to add this to the xmas gift pile!
Almost finished with this one, just two more repeats left to do. It is funny how something that takes me one afternoon on the weekend can take all week to finish in the evenings after work. I'm still enjoying this pattern, but I'll be ready for something new once I finish.
I was hoping to get a little more done tonight but I'm thankful I at least had enough time to do a few more repeats. Sometimes I get frustrated when I feel like I'm not making as much progress as I would like, but it is nice to take a step back and be grateful... Continue Reading →
What can I say, this pattern is addictive. Each row of the repeat is slightly different, but it is still easy enough to memorize. I'm hoping this will finish off this ball of yarn to get it out of my stash, and I can add it to the small pile of these I'm giving as... Continue Reading →
I liked making the first one so much I started this one right away! The festive xmas colors are a bit much for me but it will make a fun gift.
After making a bunch of goals about finishing what I've started, of course today I cast on something entirely new. This is the "Almost Lost Washcloth". I got to learn two new techniques making this, yarn overs and short rows. It says something about how far I've come with my knitting that I made this... Continue Reading →
