Hot off the Needles

I just finished up another dishcloth. Double Eyelet Heart, Leisure Arts dishcloth from the heart, by Evelyn A. Clark. Great pattern and my first attempt at YO and SSK. I think I have a few hole in places that should not be in the pattern but over all a pretty good first try. I have cast on Shapely Diamond from Leisure Arts Kitchen Bright Dishcloths #3824 . I guess this dishcloth will be my weekend project.

Almost Done!

Double Eyelet Heart, I am almost finished with my dishcloth row 57. I will post a picture. We are getting a little rain. So far it is still raining and it has been a while since we have had a good rain on this side of Asheboro. I am happy about this because of my garden. I checked on the garden this afternoon and it looked so dry even though my Mother watered this morning. I did notice that I have a lot of cucumber growing and more blooms. The squash and zucchini have blooms and all of the container tomato's have blooms and very tiny tomato's on the vine. I hope my eggplant make it this year. One more day of work this week , June is almost over and July is about to begin. We are closed next Friday the 4th of July. I did not take any extra days off and now I am regretting that choice. I hear thunder in the background. I hope it rains for a while.

Kit & Kaboodle Swap picture at last!

I received all the wonderful stuff you see in this picture from my swap partner over at crochetville. It is from the Kit & Kaboodle Swap. In this swap you have to pick a pattern for your partner and then provide all the materials your partner will need in order to complete the pattern. You have to share a little something with your swap partner what you like a pattern you have not tried the colors and types of yarn you use when knitting or crochet. I hope to post a picture of my next dish cloth soon. It is going pretty good it looks much better that my first attempt.

Yarn Over & Slip Slip Knit

Well I have been working on a dish cloth this weekend and This dish cloth called for YO(yarn over) and SSK(slip,slip,knit). The pattern is from Leisure Arts dishcloths From The Heart, By Evelyn A. Clark. I started the first time on the 19th. Well today I went to and watched the video on yo and ssk. My first go round one side of the heart looked good but the other side did not it had holes where it should not have holes so I ripped that out and started over again and it looks better this time. The video's are very helpful and very easy to follow. So now I think I am on the right track with the dish cloth. I am finished row 15 and ready to start 16 I think I will wait until tomorrow night to continue. I think I will read a little while before I go to bed.
