Quick weekend project…

Hi there.

Over the weekend, I decided to use up some cotton yarn I had left from another project and make a dish towel.

It was a really fast project and super simple utilizing only the Garter stitch (knitting every row).

I used Rico Creative Cotton Aran from loveknitting.com for this project.  It’s one of my favourite yarns to work with.

Well, off to start another dish towel.  This time I’m going to make one to go with the dish cloth I made the other weekend.

Happy knitting!

A new dish towel…

Hey there!

I finally finished my new dish towel and you can find the pattern  here!

I added an I-cord edge to the towel to give it a more finished look.  Also, this towel has contrasting stripes on both ends.

I really hope you give it a try! It would make the perfect Hostess gift!

Happy knitting!

A tower of towels…

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.

Happy knitting!

A new pattern…almost

Hi there!

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.

Happy knitting!

Another dishtowel…

Hello there!

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!

Happy knitting!
