Entrelac Practice finished!

I finished my entrelac piece! It was a lot of fun to knit because it meant putting skills I already know into practice in a new way. The striped yarn playing with the entrelac pattern also made it interesting to look at the whole way through. Even though this is destined to be a dishcloth,... Continue Reading →

Entrelac Practice progress

I've been spending my knitting time working on this practice piece. It turns out that Entrelac is not that difficult, it is just a little fiddly in some places. I think the result looks very interesting but also a bit odd. Maybe that's a reason why none of the entrelac patterns I've been browsing have... Continue Reading →

Entrelac Practice started

Learning entrelac is on my big goals list for this year. I spent a lot of time looking at patterns and couldn't figure out a good place to start. Luckily a kind reader pointed me toward this pattern that has a basic entrelac blanket square. I decided to make it to learn the technique, and... Continue Reading →

Half Washcloth Again

I was trying really hard not to start any new projects for a bit, but this one happened out of necessity. I had a dentist appointment and needed a small project I could work on in the waiting room. My sweater and shawl are both way too big and complicated to take out of the... Continue Reading →

Half Washcloth

I have been using my other half-sized washcloth quite a lot, and decided I needed to make some more of them. I'm going to play around a bit with the style and size until I find the recipe I like the best. This time around I made it without the yarnovers on the edges. In... Continue Reading →

Traditional Dishcloth

I needed a little palette cleanser so I knit up this quick dishcloth pattern. It was great to start and finish a project in one day. I like the size of it a lot (it's about half the size of a standard dishcloth), and it seems like a useful size for a washcloth. The Dishie... Continue Reading →

St. Patrick’s Day Washcloth

This week seems to be all about getting some quick knits out of my system after struggling with long projects. Today I'm showing off this pretty dishcloth. Sure, St. Patrick's Day is long past, but I had this horrible electric green cotton yarn I wanted to use up and a shamrock pattern seemed a good... Continue Reading →

Delightful Dishcloth!

Sometimes you just really need to knit a quick dishcloth. This project was started mostly to keep me from casting on any new socks before June. I'm not sure if it worked as intended because I still really want to cast on some socks. I won't hold it against this dishcloth though. It's cute with... Continue Reading →

Second Colorwave Dishcloth finished!

I just couldn't stop knitting on this dishcloth, so it got finished in a hurry! I have definitely been enjoying the brioche stitch now that I'm more familiar with it. That bodes well for the cardigan I'm about to cast on. You can see that this second dishcloth (on the left) is slightly smaller than... Continue Reading →

Colorwave Dishcloth finished!

I'm very pleased with the way this came out. I think I may have messed up the finishing and bind-off rows a little bit but otherwise it looks really nice. More importantly, it gave me some good practice with brioche. This dishcloth used up just about half of a ball of Dishie, and I think... Continue Reading →

Colorwave Dishcloth progress

I'm definitely hitting my stride with this pattern now. It was late in the evening before I finally started to get the hang of those all-important yarnover + slip stitch combinations you need for brioche. Now I can do that with one fluid motion instead of fussing with the individual steps. This does feel like... Continue Reading →
