When I came across this pattern for knitted log cabin washcloths, I was consumed with the need to make them. Here is the first one, with the colors I will be using; the blue will be the outer rectangles. Evidently I have difficulties with things that are supposed to be easy. These washcloths are all done in garter stitch, meaning that it is all knitting, no purling needed. Well, yesterday, I was happily knitting away, when I stop and really look at what I've done. I guess I have made too many items in stockinette stitch because without realizing it, that's what I started doing halfway through. I had to stop and unknit (ugh!) back to the garter stitching.I also worked on some more hats. Here G. is modelling the hat I made to be sure the pattern still fit the babies' heads. I love how this turned out. I guess I will put it away for now. I have fantasies of someday opening an Etsy store. It would be nice to earn a little extra money doing something I enjoy.
These girls are a couple of my favorite works in progress. They turn 8 months old today and I have a feeling that they will be crawling before I announce their 9 month birthday. Here they are enjoying their valentines that their Grammy sent them.
