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.
If you would like to check them out, click here.
We just got back from an awesome road trip. I wanted to share some pictures with you!

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.
Hi everyone! Right now we are visiting my cousin, Pamela! She is the owner of Pamela Goodman Art (pamelagoodmanart.etsy.com)!
All of her prints are cute, whimsical, and fun. I got to take some pictures of her studio.
You can check her and her shop out at pamelagoodman.com. Thanks!
A box of happiness came in the mail today!!
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!
I recently have become obsessed with washi tape. Washi tape is basically masking tape but much prettier.
There’s so many choices of patterns!
I made these cute washi tape magnets recently, so I wanted to share them with you!
– Washi tape or wrapping paper or just plain old paper
– Magnet Material (with adhesive on one side)
First step, peel the paper off the sticky side of the magnet and put a peice of washi tape on it.
Then cut the magnet where needed, and trim the edges of the it.
This is only one of the many uses of washi tape. You can even washi tape a car!
Happy Independence Day, everyone!
P.S. Check out the shop for some new items!
P.P.S Stay tuned for a post about washi tape, my new obsession!
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.
I love to listen to these podcasts on road trips, so they’re perfect for summer! Do you have a favorite knitting/crochet podcast?
