Well, my lofty goal of making all my Christmas gifts this year didn’t go quite as planned.
I got caught up in making a massive amount of these instead:
I haven’t knitted in a couple of years, so it felt nice to get back into it. The pattern for these is called “Grandma’s Favorite Dishcloth,” and I got it from Ravelry, although it can be found all over the web as it’s probably the most popular dishcloth pattern.
I did give some away as gifts, but I still have tons leftover and lots of yarn to make more. Anybody want to put in an order? 😉
And now that I am in the knitting mood, I have a few things I’d like to make and have bought the yarn for one special project in particular… More on that in a future post.
In addition to the dish cloths, I also made a necklace for my friend E. (hope she doesn’t read this as I am a slacker and haven’t shipped it to her yet!):
She loves pearls, so I knotted some freshwater pearls, quartz crystal and silver spacers on silk cord. It was my first silk knotting project, and I think it turned out really well so I am excited to make more.
Hopefully I can take some better pictures when my new camera arrives, some of these didn’t turn out so well.
For my office, I made some snowflake decorations:
I didn’t get around to making a few things that I had originally planned to, but I’m pretty happy I finished anything!
I just love crafting! Can ya tell?
And just because I think it’s pretty, one more pic of the dish cloths:
