New Dishcloths!!

I couldn’t help it any longer….I listed these new dishcloths in the shop yesterday!!! I love them so much. They’re made with 100% cotton yarn, so they’re great for scrubbung dishes, washing down countertops, and even gifts! I made a little color chart to go with them.

Fair Isle

Soooo……I learned how to fair isle! It’s actually much easier than I thought it would be. I had a bit of trouble with keeping my navy stitches tight, but I did it!

I reccomend watching Very Pink Knits’ How to Fair Isle video. It has several parts, but it’s very informative.

I Love Knit Picks!

A box of happiness came in the mail today!!image

I got Dishie in Flamingo and Navy, Comfy Worsted in Rosehip (8 balls) , and Felici in Teacup! I’m making some dishcloths and face cloths with Dishie, a blanket with Comfy, and fingerless mitts with Felici!!! I love Comfy-it’s just what the name implies, soooo comfy!! Anyway, I reccomend these and all Knit Picks yarns!

By by the way, I’m going to be out of town for a while, so there won’t be as frequent blog posts for a few weeks. Thanks!

Washi Tape Magnets

I recently have become obsessed with washi tape. Washi tape is basically masking tape but much prettier.

First step, peel the paper off the sticky side of the magnet and put a peice of washi tape on it.

Knit Picks Podcast

I just recently started listening to knitting podcasts. My favorite so far is the Knit Picks Podcast. It’s fun and entertaining to listen to, but also I learned lots of knitting tips.
