I had no intention of getting back here today. It was our last day of schooling before Easter, and I have a long, long list of things to do before Sunday. But, I listened to a really great book today and I had to come here to share. So I am linking up with Ginny at Small Things.
I have three wips right now, but mostly I am working on my Tiny Tea Leaves Cardigan. I am usually knitting while I am sitting in the parking lot of the dance studio or waiting inside the dance studio, so it's a row here and a row there, but I just started the stockinette part of the sweater -- the three beautiful rows of increases and decreases are finished.
I always have a dishcloth in my car for when I am waiting on someone, or in the doctor's office if I have forgotten my knitting bag. These are baby wash cloths, but I also knit dish cloths. Have you ever knit yourself dish cloths? Some people are always busy knitting beautiful things that they forget about practical projects. The thing is, handknit wash cloths are as much a luxury as handknit sweaters. They are so much nicer to use than manufactured dish cloths and wash cloths. I have used patterns before, but I find a square or rectangle knit using the seed stitch is just as nice as any pattern. These pictured are 32 stitches wide by 38 rows using sugar and cream yarn.
This stays in my knitting bag and usually I work on it in doctor's offices. I have the pattern memorized so I don't need to refer to any directions. I will just keep knitting until I run out of yarn. Notes and specs here.
I'll check back and update this post to link to the Yarn Along when Ginny's blog is back up and running.
