As you know I’ve been using the knitty sticks again lately. I finished the cloth early Wednesday evening, as you can probably tell by the golden sun which streamed in through the windows as I took these photos.
I used more of my Planet Penny Cotton with 4mm circular needles. Mine measures a genteel 6″ by 7″.
I *think* this was another of my Pinterest finds, but you know how it is – I’ve got a folder of printed patterns, saved patterns and links on three lap tops and on my iphone, plus, more in my Ravelry library. It gets a bit crazy but you save what you see at the time (and then often forget all about it for ages!)
I really love the texture of this knit. It’s almost too nice for scrubbing dishes so I’m going to try it as a wash cloth. I haven’t used any cotton for ‘wet use’ so am wondering if my face will turn yellow! So far it’s been perfect for owl I and owl II as well as the three string bags you’ve seen lately, but I’ll let you know if I end up looking jaundiced….
Today I’ve been sitting in the garden, in the lovely sun, trying out a new crochet mouse pattern (see the KAL: A Mile of Mice group on Ravelry for the details) for the Mile of Mice charity fund-raiser. I’ll post a piccy of him tomorrow. This song goes well with summer outdoor crochet – I’ve been listening to a double album of theirs –
Hope you’re enjoying the sun – or snuggled warmly if it’s winter your side of the world.
Love Mick. (I’d forgotten how pretty they were back in the day, those hairstyles!). I’ll have this song on the brain for the next two days now, but luckily I really love the Stones. Like I said.
Well that’ll cheer you up in the mornings! Very pretty.. I will will wait anxiously to find out about that yellow face! x
Your cloth turned out great – love the happy, sunny yellow.
I’ve knitted that cloth a few times and love the pattern.
What it is to be young?!
Yes, it definitely is far too nice for washing dishes. Very sunny. Much as I like music, I’ve never got into the Stones. Maybe it’s Mick’s strutting that does it!?!
