Recent Projects


I've managed to finish a few things lately. It's helped that I've been the passenger in Allen's pickup truck instead of being the driver in our (permanently broken down) van.

I finished two hats in one day on the 7th. One was knitted and one was crocheted. The knitted one is a modified version of "Hat Shaped Hat". I made it smaller, as I was using only one ball of Brown Sheep Burly Spun yarn. It's nice and soft and cozy. I am thinking of saving it for an Afghans for Afghans donation drive sometime in the future.

This is the hat:



(Again, I am sorry for the bad photos. Jerek ordered a new cable for the eepad but it won't be here for another week or so and I want to get these projects up.)


Here is the crocheted one.



This was my own design. I held a strand of Bernat Sesame (Germantown Weight) and a strand of Red Heart Classic held together. The Red Heart is dark pink and the Bernat is light blue. The Bernat is 100% wool. This hat is thus 50% wool, 50% acrylic. It fits me, although it is a tad bit snug. It's average woman size I would think.

Today I started a neckwarmer in Red Heart Super Saver, it's finished but for the buttons. I don't want to take a photo till I get them on. :) It's in garter stitch, very simple. The pattern is from Ravelry, called "Neckwarmer".

I have a few other things I haven't gotten all whipped up, but not ready to photograph. Soon. :)

Nine Lines Washcloth

Hello again. How is everyone? It's going about the same here, Jerek's still in the same shape. I did have a nice weekend. It was the circuit assembly, which is a two day series of Bible talks that takes place every year, along with the District Convention (three days) and the Special Assembly Day (one day.) There were many upbuilding Bible-based talks, and it was good to see a lot of people I haven't seen in a while.

As you can tell by the title of the post, though, the assembly isn't the main point of my writing to you this time. I made a washcloth last week. I used a stitch pattern that I learned last fall from a afghan block. It was called Plowed Rows, but I didn't think that name fit the washcloth. Instead I am calling it Nine Lines, because it has nine lines. (I know, ain't I creative? (-:)

Here is the cloth. Not a great photo, but as good as I can do right now.





And on to the pattern.

I think this would be a great pattern to learn how to slip stitches with…
