Finally a finished Project

I finished a wash cloth from a pattern that I had but never used because I kinda thought it would be hard. I tried it before but I just got frustrated with it plus the cotton that i was using wasn't soft enough to use. I had a few balls of cotton that i wanted to use for a the "little black sweater" in the Stitch n Bitch book but I gave up on it..maybe another time. I had pics of it also but my camera is acting wonky so I guess I won't be able to put up a pic right now. I'm pretty sad about that one because It really didn't turn out liek it was suppose to which was a perfect diamond shape. i can't figure out what I did wrong on the pattern. I used the right needles..cotton yarn which was the most soft mercerized cotton yarn that I've felt in a long time. I think I'll be making a few more wash cloths just for fun and to give out...I might also just sell a few this summer. I really want to find a pattern that is easy that is beautiful also.I'll search Lion Brand for a few patterns also.
The pattern goes like this :
  • Cotton yarn
  • size 8 needles
Cast on 4 stitches
knit 2 rows
Knit 2 stitches, yo knit to end of row
Repeat until you have 44 stitches on the needle
K1, knit 2 tog, yo, knit 2 together, knit to end of row
Repeat until you have 4 stitches
Bind off

I'll post pics when I make another or get my camera up and running.

Manic Knitting

I've been knitting alot since the last post. I have a few things started and then I have finished a few things and I really didn't like it at all. It was a clutch but it was without a pattern. I've made a clutch before but it turned out to be so small that it was only good as a wallet. I guess that's fine though. I really want to make a few wash cloths for myself and family but I can't for the life of me find a nice pattern that's nice and easy. I still have this problem with my cast on because it makes it look fat and out of whack per se. I really wanna to sell a few things and put them on the Etsy site that my friend has. I've been working on the blanket for the house and I'm currently inlove with this beautiful yellow color and I think I'd like to make a few baby things with it because it's neutral..maybe I'll add white with it. I really need to learn a new cast on method just in case this one is not good. I'll add pics whenever I can to update.
