Yes, I did tell you I had a few more things to show you.
Another honeycomb cloth...this time a solid:
I really love this cloth. Marie made it out of self striping yarn that is awesome. Check her cloth out here.
To help Olly in her quest for different looking cloths knit diagonally, I found a few for her that look very interesting. In addition to one of my all-time favorite the diagonal ripple, which is the only one of the lot that I had done myself, here are a few I found:
Rhonda's baby blanket knit on the diagonal with bee stitch. There was no pattern as how to do it, but it was super easy to figure it out on my own. All it is grandmother's favorite, but instead of garter stitch you use the bee stitch. I felt compelled to try it out, not as a blanket but as a cloth:
First as a solid,
What you end up with is a very nicely textured cloth, but it ends up being a very soft wash cloth, in fact a perfect washcloth. The knit stitch reminds me of a thermal blanket. I love it!
Since I knit baby blankets for my church using grandmother's favorite. The Deacons give them out to the babies being baptized in the church. Here is one of my most recent ones I finished:
Our prayer shawl group sews on a tiny gold cross in one of the corners. This one still needs it's cross. I have to admit, they do get to be a little bit boring.
Now I know what I am going to make for my next one...you guess right...the diagonal bee stitch :) Oh, the possibilities, need I say more!!
Happy knitting everyone :)
