WIP Wednesday: Brought to you by the Spring Break Dishcloths
A couple of years ago I created my own variation on the famous Peaches-n-Creme Ballband dishcloth. I wrote it up as a pattern and it's on Ravelry. For free... check it out! My one and only published pattern!
Whenever life seems too stressful for other kinds of knitting I put one of these on the needles, sometimes with different scraps and bits of cotton yarn, and sometimes even using intarsia.
Sometimes I'll use a different dishcloth pattern altogether. This is the Linoleum Dishcloth by Kay Gardiner of Mason-Dixon Knitting. It's a really pretty pattern, but I can't seem to memorize it so I always have to look at the paper.
And I keep coming back to my own pattern. This much intarsia gets pretty tangly, but it's still a dead-simple knitting pattern and uses up scraps. I like to have enough dishcloths made to give one to each teacher every year at Christmas.
Farmer's Wife Quilt - about 30% done with sashing - see it here.
March UFO knitting bag - no progress, but still in my sewing area and I will get to it. Someday.
April UFO Jack's Chain quilt - no progress, but I'm thinking about it.
knitting Black Roses Stole - about 25% done, I need to buy a really tiny crochet hook for the beads I want to add.
knitting cotton bath rug - no progress
knitting argyle-fest - no progress
spinning - I have not done any spinning for 2 weeks.
Startitis - I really want to start a bunch of stuff. Now that Spring break is over and my grading is done for 3rd quarter, maybe I can. I'm dreaming of another shawl and at least 2 or 3 different quilt projects.
