I liked my cat dishcloth so much I decided to make a spooky bat to go with it. Well, right now it is just a bat butt. Crochet goes so much faster than knitting for me, so I expect this one to be done in no time!
It's finished! It's still a bit hard to see unless the light is good but I am very happy with it anyway. It is fun for Halloween but it also reminds me of my own little black cat!
Hopefully now you can see the pattern enough to see that it's a black cat! I got a huge amount done over the holiday weekend and now there's only a few rows left to finish it off. I wish it wasn't quite so hard to see but I still really like it.
I had to mess around with the flash and different angles but at least now you can tell there's some sort of pattern happening. It always feels so good to work on something quick and easy when you've been in the middle of a bigger project for a while. I expect to be refreshed and... Continue Reading →
It's the spooky season and I decided I needed to make something that was quick and fun to celebrate. Sadly black yarn doesn't photograph so well. Hopefully I can figure out a way to show this project off somehow. It's going to be cute!
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!
