Over the holidays I worked on combining the knit and purl stitch to make an eye catching pattern. Mom and I found a dishcloth booklet that had many simple ideas and I felt comfortable spreading my wings with a small project.
Here is my first patterned dishcloth - it's a "barrel" pattern and I like how the pattern and the color in the yarn coincided so nicely. Almost like I planned it that way! Score!
Now, you see that green stripe in the middle? The one that looks a little wonky? This is the one I'm talking about:
Yes, that one. That is where I discovered that knitting and champagne are best left as separate hobbies. Not to be combined. Ever. Turns out that champagne can compromise the knitters ability to read a pattern. Just so you know.
Next week I will show off that scarf that I
slaved joyfully put together over the holidays!
