I'm so sorry for not posting regularly lately, I've been a bit under the weather. I'm hoping that I'm coming around the bend though and will be back to my usual self soon.
I haven't felt like working on anything big, so I've been knitting some washcloths. Since Valentine's Day is coming up, I bought Susan B. Anderson's Sweetheart Washcloth pattern and so far I've made two. I hope to make a couple more. They're so cute and it's a really great pattern. I think my favourite part is the crochet border, it finishes it off perfectly.
I also knit up this week's dishcloth for my Dishcloth Challenge. I picked a squirrel because I started it on Monday which was Squirrel Appreciation Day. I thought it was appropriate and cute.
The pattern is Elaine Fitzpatrick's Oh Nuts! Cloth.
I'm still working away on my WIPs and they're coming along well. At the moment I only have two, since I finished a pair of socks off the list this afternoon for my Mom. She really liked how colourful they were so I thought she should have them.
I used Patons Kroy Socks Stripes in Mexicala Stripes and just did a plain top-down vanilla sock with a short-row heel - my standard go-to pattern. I think they will keep her toes nice and toasty, especially in this cold snap we are experiencing.
Well, that's all for today. I think I will go and try to work on my crochet shawl for a while, it always cheers me up. It's made out of Knit Picks Chroma in Lollipop, which I have to say is my favourite colour in that line. If I was stuck on a deserted island and could only pick three things, I would take a ball of it along with a pair of knitting needles and a crochet hook and just make things and rip them out till my heart was content. I don't think I could ever get enough of this colourway.
Have a great Wednesday,
