View Full Version : FO - Christmas Dishcloth

12-08-2005, 11:46 PM
I zipped this out tonight (here's the pattern) (http://www.jimsyldesign.com/~dishbout/kpatterns/doilycloth.html)for my Great Aunt in Alabama who found out about my new addiction from my mother & now wants a CD with pictures of all my knitting.....I cant very well send JUST the CD! This is especially appropriate because she sends me a hand-crocheted doily every year & I LOVE them!

This was FUN to knit! you start with 8 sts on sz 7 dpns and it GROWS and GROWS and GROWS from there! Its about 10" in diameter!

That is so cool! It looks hard; is it really not? :shock:

Very Christmasy!! Love it :heart:

Thanks for all the kudos, friends!

Renna....as long as you are comfortable with dpns, its not hard. Just a bunch of YOs and K2togs, really. I CO to 4 needles instead of the 3 suggested in the pattern. TRY IT!!

I'll have to see if my Hobby Lobby has that one. It would be great for a x-mas dishtowel too.

I :heart: working on dpn's! I HOPE :pray: my Wal-Mart craft section has that yarn in Christmas colors. It's sort of late to start ordering yarn to get back in time to make gifts. I'd like to be able to give those to some of my female (non-knitting) friends. I've found you don't have to be all that talented a knitter (which I'm not YET) to impress your non-knitting friends. :mrgreen:

Cute!! Your aunt will LOVE it, I'm sure! That really is a cool pattern ... and it sounds like fun now that I've become accustomed to DPNs. ;-)

12-10-2005, 12:01 PM
She WILL love it...she's so enthusiastic about EVERYTHING. And it WAS a fun pattern! You dont have to use DPNs for long, either....It's kinda strange to knit on circs with something stretched across the middle.

12-10-2005, 12:12 PM
Ooo ...that would be weird. I think I'd probably stick w/the DPNs instead; although, I am kinda partial to my circs. :??

I just hate it when you guys come out here and post these cool patterns that make me want to try them when I have other stuff that REALLY needs to be done!

12-10-2005, 12:27 PM
It gets too big for DPNs after a bit....I didnt mean it was DIFFICULT....just strange. And, I shouldnt have said "circs". Its just strange to do circular knitting with something across the middle. You know, its usually a TUBE.

12-10-2005, 12:51 PM
Ahhh ... I get it. It sounds like a lot of fun, and it's going to be REALLY hard to ignore that Kitchen Cotton sitting in there whispering sweet nothings to me!!! :shock:

12-10-2005, 01:28 PM
OOOH, JULIE!!! I LUUUUUUUV YOU! Why dont you want to knit with meeeeee???? YOU are SOOOOO PREEETY! We could make SWEET KNIIITTTTING together!!!

12-10-2005, 01:45 PM
:shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Is it just me... or is the yarn talking to us through the screen? I was up late last night and could be hallucinating from tiredness...

PS: I had no idea SnC had such full, pouty lips :roflhard:
