The last 10 days were very busy for me, that's why I have been silent. I did a wee little bit of knitting. I finally got the chance to knit a washcloth. What better pattern to knit than the Ballband dichcloth pattern from Mason Dixon. I was in urgent need of washcloths that I could gift to a very very special lady. So I started this one with yarn I had at home. But I realized that I wasn't going to finish it in time to present it to her because I couldn't possibly gift someone just one washcloth now could I?? I loved this project and you can expect to see its partner/s sometime in the near future.
By the way, the friend I was knitting this for, is someone I have to tell you about. She is this amazing woman who obeyed God's command and she gave up her full time job to provide a temporary safe haven to newborns in transition to foster homes!! So now, that is her full time job. Can you believe it? I am so proud to know her and I am so humbled to see such wonderful people who can give up everything at His command. A truly amazing woman of faith!!
Pattern: Ballband Dishcloth from Mason Dixon Knitting
Yarn: Lily's Sugar 'n Cream in Dark Pine and Hot Green - 1 skein each
Needle: US #7
My gauge was way off. Hey its just a washcloth. So instead of the 9x9 finished size, I had 11x8.
Ofcourse if there is a rule that dishcloth patterns cannot be used for washcloths, I broke that too! Pardon me please :)
Finally we had a busy week weather wise too. There was hot, cold and then wet. We had this lovely spectacle treat for our eyes one stormy evening RIGHT outside our door. This was truly one fantastic home delivery.
