Still Here!

Swaledale Wool Handspun

I have not been doing much on spinning or dyeing front. No updates to report at this time. I have too many other activities on my plate at present. And these lovely June days of sunshine and temperate weather are such a nice distraction.

I have been knitting dishcloths instead. Cotton just feels so good this time of year. So far I have knit around 10 dishcloths. Sadly, I see no end on sight! Love knitting the Ballband dishcloths.

Be well!

The BallBand Christmas Dishcloth

Close up: BallBand Christmas Dishcloth
 
 
 It has been some time since I posted.  I assure you there has been plenty of knitting and some spinning behind the scenes. Now that the cold weather is definitely upon us, knitting and spinning  are the sports d’jour.

My two current favorite patterns are the Ballband dish cloth pattern and the Morning Surf scarf pattern. I love knitting these simple but colourful cotton dishcloths.

 I did modify the Morning Surf pattern from increments of 10+6 to a total of 39 cast-on stitches. I also changed the yarn overs in the pattern. Instead of 2-3-4-3-2 sequence, I knitted 1-2-3-2-1 because I wanted less “poofing.” I also altered row 9 to start with K2 stitches and end with K2 ,instead of just one. By the by, you can find the altered Morning Surf scarf pattern on my Flickr.com.

Hope everyone is well. Happy holidays!
