I thank my little sister... she said about 3 years ago, "You have to go see this blog done by this woman in England" - and emailed me the url. I clicked on it and found Attic24 - a delightful blog produced by a nice woman named Lucy in England. I was entranced by her colorful crochet and positive outlook on life and her family of (then) 2 children. I've been with her through the birth of her 3rd child, "Little B" and all kinds of adventures. What is most fun is that she creates really neat crochet objects and writes up the patterns and photographs tutorials. One of her latest creations was a crocheted heart that you stuff and embellish with a crocheted flower and leaves. Lots of crafters over the world have done their versions of "the heart" - and I just finished up mine. Done in a sparkly yarn. I plan to do more. It was my admiration of Lucy's blog which encouraged me to begin my own blog. It has opened a whole new world for me and I want to thank my little sister, Denise, for finding Lucy's blog and sending me to visit.After all, had I not found Lucy's blog, I would not have made all the blog friends that I have today - and the friendship is the whipped cream on top of the cupcake!
My blog friend, Pammy Sue, sent me her copy of the instructions that she got off Lucy's blog - so if you want it, let me know.
I finished my knitted dishcloth! It's soooOOOoo soft, made with the KnitPicks "Simply Cotton Worsted" organic unbleached cotton.Soft.. yummy.. I love the texture of this pattern.
Grandma's Knitted Dishcloth (I recommend size 7 or 4.5 MM needles)
Cast on 4 stitches
knit 1 row and a second row
Next row, k2, yo, k2
Next row, k2, yo, k to end of row
Continue to repeat the [k2, yo, k until end of row] until you have a total of 45 sts on the needle (or more for a bigger cloth)
To begin the decreasing rows --
Next row, k1, k2Tog, yo, k2Tog, k to end of row
Continue to do the [k1, k2Tog, yo, k2Tog, k to end of row], decreasing each row until you have 5 stitches are left on the needle
Next row, k2, k2Tog, k1.
Bind off the 4 sts and weave in end.
Well, I'm off to the doctor for my annual checkup - the blood work was done and all my stuff is really good.. blood sugar, blood pressure & cholesterol. Then we're going to lunch after. What are you up to this week? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
