Reaching the halfway point in knitting the Lover's Knot blanket made my day! I just finished the 7th pattern repeat of the braided cable. It is really getting heavy on my lap, but it does keep me very warm on cold nights. I laid out the blanket on my bed today to see if it will be the right size or the size I envisioned. Looks like it is the perfect width, but I can't really stretch it out until it is off the needles. One thing though...there is way too much off white yarn which is getting boring. I really need to work with color, so I did start a side project yesterday. It should be fairly quick to finish. I'll try to post again soon so I can show you.
In the meantime here is some of the dishcloths I finished this past summer, but never had the chance to post. I still have more to show you....which I will in the coming weeks just to add some color to my blog.
The first set is the Star Cloth. A few variations that I played with. It's been so long since I knit them that I can't even remember what I did. That's bad, but I do remember having fun with this stitch.
I also tried Kay's Linoleum Cloth in a couple of color combos. They were fun to do. I LOVE mosaic slip stitch patterns. Finally I leave you with a photo of the silk flower arrangement I made for the after wedding party we had for my son and his new wife back in November.
I feel better now. I really needed the color :)
happy knitting :)
