Ravelry Knitting


Joining Ravelry is amazing and it's free! I have been checking out some of the most gorgeous knitting projects, plus there are patterns for most of them. In between my other art projects, I have been knitting these microfiber dishcloths. I stumbled into one of our local knitting stores called Skeins on Main, where there was a bargain bin. Naturally, I grabbed enough for three dishcloths. This lovely luxury yarn is a blend of 65% cotton and 35% microfiber called Jo Sharp Aran Cotton. It feels wonderful as you are handknitting a project. My all time favorite dishcloth pattern was graciously shared by Homespun Living.

My other project that has been seriously frustrating me is a pair of mittens. I finally completed my first error free right hand. I now have four (yes four!!) right hands done, all different colors, all different sizes. Maybe I need another hand? But, for crying out loud, my brain had turned to mush and needed a break from the mittens for a day. Now, I have one left hand to go. I can't wait to show you in a few days. They are an amazing pair of mittens.

Great dish clothes, I tried to teach myself to knit once a long time ago. But, it was a no do for me. Sigh ! They look really soft.

Cheers !

Seems like these are too pretty to use for dihes. Can you pack a few so we can see them at the Art Group meeting?

Thanks for the compliment about the old paintings.

Yes, I was playing around with "Background Fairy." For some reason I could not get "Cutest Blog on the Blog" to work, even when it came back online. It kept asking for a password. I never did go back to see if they fixed that issue. Thanks for noticing my new look. Those programs are SO addictive and fun!
