Need Some Dishcloth Inspiration? :-)



I just noted a pattern offer over at KnitPicks for:

52 weeks of Free Dishcloth Patterns

I know I need to knit/crochet some more as the ones I have right now are looking pretty tattered! 😉

Some very cute patterns to pick from in this collection and best of all, they are free! 

You can check out the link to all the patterns here.

And if you have a fav dishcloth pattern to knit/crochet, do share a link to the pattern if you can, thank you! I’m always looking for knit-inspiration. 😉

Happy Knitting! 

Another Free Knitting eBook from Interweave!

I ♥ Interweave!

I’ve been enjoying their patterns and books for a lot of years.

And their free knit and crochet resources are hard to beat.

I downloaded a copy of this latest free ebook this morning and I hope you enjoy a copy too.

Don’t you just love that pink knitting bag? 😉

Some great patterns here for beginners too, especially the cowl and hand-warmers.

Click here to get your copy.

And no spam or endless emails afterwards, I know that for sure.

Happy Crafting and Weekend! 🙂


Another Stash-Busting Project: Bow-Knot Scarf

bow tie scarf 2

I made this Bow-Knot scarf recently from some black worsted-weight stash yarn that I had.

It was a very hot day when I had this photo taken, hence the inappropriate clothes worn with it. LOL 😉

I do think it will be very nice to wear for the winter though.

An easy project, would be perfect for beginners and didn’t take much yarn either.  Nice gift idea too!

If you’ve been looking for another stash-busting project for your own “yarn pile” you can check out the pattern here.

The only slight error I noted in this pattern, was on the first line that starts with: NEXT ROW, line should have read decreases NOT increases stitch. No biggie but if you’re new to knitting you might wonder about that. 😉

Happy Crafting and Knitting!

Happy Autumn too!  🙂


Guilty Pleasures Socks

I’m still knitting up a storm! 😉

Finished these Guilty Pleasures Socks a couple of weeks ago. They were fun to knit and not too difficult either.

I made them in Patons Stretch Socks yarn in Mineral shade and they took approximately 1.5 skeins to make (this was not the yarn called for in the pattern, that used just one skein in keeping with the theme of this book). They were one size pattern, fit great.

These socks are featured in the book: 101 Designer One Skein Wonders.

Actually a lot nicer in reality than the photos are!

Now that I’ve “aced” the art of sock-knitting, I’m working on my first pair of knit gloves now. Kind of challenge but fun. I’ll share some photos when those are completed too.

Happy Crafting !
