Colourful dish cloths…

Good morning!

I just wanted to share some dish cloths that I made for my neighbour.

She is the sweetest lady always baking us cookies, so I wanted to make something for her to say “Thank you”.

The pattern for the dish cloth is FREE and you can find it here.

I used Rico Creative Cotton Aran for the dish cloths that I purchased from loveknitting.com.

They have so many different colours and it’s great to work with.

So I’ve decided that 2017 is going to be a year of knitting socks and pillow cushion covers.  I already have my first pillow cushion cover on the needles and a shopping cart of yarn over at loveknitting.com for the socks just waiting to be purchased (I want to get my pillow cushion cover done first, but I don’t know if I can wait!! LOL!!)

I hope you have plans to do a ton of knitting in 2017 too!

Happy New Year!

Christmas gifts…

So, I have a couple of Christmas presents done! Whew!!

I have been trying to get my gifts done in between finishing up a large corporate chocolate order.

These hats were created using a “knit 3, purl 3” pattern.  I used 2 strands of DK yarn at one time so you will need 2 balls of yarn of about 50 yards each.  Double knitting makes them ultra warm. Cast 69 stitches onto US size 9 needles and continue with the knit 3, purl 3 ribbing pattern until the hat is 8″ long.

Once at 8″, the next row you will knit 2 stitches together across the row and knit the last stitch.  Then the next row, purl every stitch and the last row knit 2 stitches together across the row.

When you’re done, cut a tail of about 15″ and thread it through a darning needle.  Lift the stitches off your knitting needle and onto the darning needle, pull tight so the top comes together and sew it up using the invisible stitch.  Tie the two ends together at the bottom and weave them in and your done!

As super quick and simple project!

Happy knitting!
