Hubby was working this weekend, so today doesn't feel like Monday; it just feels like another day of a very loooong week...
I watched the Knitty Gritty marathon until late last night, and I have learned few new techniques, improved some others that I use to do
wrong not so well, and added few more patterns to my already ridiculously long "Wanna-Do" List ...
Oh well, dreaming doesn't hurt, right?
It is a 7 x 9" Seed Square (my favorite stitch). I have used Red Heart Super Saver Multicolor, color 0920 "Polo" (from my stash) and I wouldn't have imagined how great that yarn looked when it is Seed Stitched! Not so exuberantly stripy anymore... Mmmh... That gives me some ideas...
My knits this weekend:
Sugar'n Cream - Early American Ombre
Peaches & Creme - Sea Mist
The 4 corners Dishcloth, based on Elizabeth Zimmerman's Square Baby Blanket.
The Hexagon Dishcloth, based on Stephanie Pearl-McPhee - the Yarn Harlot's Circular Shawl (Knitting Rules -- Method 2, page 178). For this cloth, I have cast on 22 stitches with needles US8 and that gave me a 10 inches diameter piece. I think casting on 18 or 20 stitches should make an about 9 inches diameter cloth (the size I actually prefer).
Oh, and I have received in the mail my Berroco Booklet and I am about to cast on Napoli!
Now, since I am on a
Yarn Diet Destaching Program (I prefer calling it that way), I will be knitting it from some Acrylic from my stash.
To be continued...
HAPPY KNITTING EVERYONE!
