Good afternoon everyone!
So I’ve completed all the towels for my co-workers.
I really hope they love using them as much as I love using mine!
If you’d like to make your own dish towel, you can find my pattern here.
I still have to make one more towel using a new pattern I created, but since I’ve made so many towels lately, I’ve started another project to mix things up a bit.
Here’s a sneak peek.
Once I’m done this project, I’ll be offering the pattern for free so stay tuned! 😀
Well, off to get this finished and the pattern written.
I’ve finished the dish towel for myself, BUT…it didn’t turn out exactly how I wanted it to. For the stripes, I used a light cream cotton and a light grey cotton and I don’t think there’s enough contrast in the colours. I would like to see more contrast.
Sooo, I’ll be adjusting the pattern a bit that I wrote and making another towel to showcase it.
I promise once this is done, I’ll share the pattern.
In the meantime, here’s my new towel.
I’ve completed another dish towel.
This is for one of the girls at work. Her kitchen walls are a mustard colour and I was able to find a beautiful mustard coloured cotton yarn by Rico over at loveknitting.com!
I’ve also started another dishtowel for myself. I’ll be writing a pattern for it too, so I’ll let you know when it’s available!
Well off to finish my dishtowel and get that pattern written.
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!
A couple of weeks back I posted that I was doing a lot of behind the scenes work; that I was working on creating an on-line shop.
Well, after more thought, I decided not to do a shop. I decided to focus on writing patterns instead…patterns for beginner knitters just like me. 😀
My patterns are for sale over at loveknitting.com and I offer others for free on this site. You can click here to check them out.
And make sure you come back again soon, as I have about 4 new patterns in the works.
I often talk about the “mattress” or “invisible” stitch in my patterns thinking you know exactly what I’m talking about, but I’ve had some people ask me how to do it.
Since I feel it’s easier to learn this by watching, I thought I would share the video I watched to learn.

You would use this method when sewing together a piece you created using the stockinette stitch.
Look at all this gorgeous, bright cotton yarn!
Soon to be made into dish towels!
I’ll share them when I’m done!!
