A bit of good news, my prayers have been answered Our rooms are about 80% in order, painters have been gone for several weeks now. I am finally able to get into the spare room that houses my yarn. While going through my bins I found a 14 oz. cone of cotton worsted in Ivy League colorway I had made a promise not to purchase any more cotton worsted until after we move but was so wishing I had more of this one, and now I do.

It will probably need to wait until after Christmas, some sort of linens will be waiting in the wings to be knitted, possibly table linens or even hand towels
That's not just good news, that's great news Claire! I wish I could say my house was about 80% in order. for you!

Isn't it fun to get into stash and rediscover treasures, like your Ivy League?

Is your kitchen green?

We've painted the house in neutral colors in preparation for putting on the market. Ceilings, crown molding, baseboards and wainscoting all in pure white, walls in Belgian Cream. Finally almost finished with freestanding cabinet for kitchen, need to measure for, order and install glass shelf. Now the cabinet is colorful, Robin's Egg with Yellow Magnolia beaded board backing the upper cabinet. Photos to follow soon, promise.

Ivy League. Nice. Now you can keep your promise and still have your new (sort of) yarn too! Way to go, Claire!

Charlotte's link led me to a cardigan pattern that I think may be just what I was looking for. Thanks, Charlotte!

Sweet! What is the name of the cardigan?

It really was like having new yarn when I found it, immediately I began thinking about all the things I had wanted to knit with it. I feel like I got rewarded for keeping my promise

Isn't it nice when things work out as they should?

I meant to post the link to the cardi earlier but my internet got balky so instead of putting it in the other thread I'll post it here. Timberline Cardigan

Now my computer is acting up. I'm crossing my fingers that I can post this.

So is everyone done making dishcloths now that Christmas is over? I've decided against making placemats and now I have four skeins of Handicrafter to make something new with. All of my scrubbies are wearing out and I'm trying to decide between making more kitchen-cotton-and-plastic-netting scrubbies or switch to mini-dishcloths.



The red is the same dishcloth I posted earlier, now washed and dried. The other three are sample scrubbies -- the green one is what I use now, but I think it is too small. The other two are one that is just right but scraggly looking (which bothers me ) and the other is too big and takes too long to knit.

I'm thinking about making plain (that is, no netting) scrubbies about the size of the one on the bottom left, maybe with a cute pattern. That might be too small for a pattern though and I may have to stick with the garter stitch for them.

I'm never done with dishcloths and washcloths. I even keep some for myself. I haven't tried scrubbies yet, but I have the netting for it. Just need to cut it into strips. Do you have a pattern or do you just knit it with cotton and netting held together?

No, pattern -- just garter stitch. I have tried holding the two together, but I find the netting twists into a skinny strand and gets lost behind the cotton one, so I try to somewhat wrap it around the yarn as I work it through.

The hardest part for me is when I knit normally, I end up frequently poking the tip of my needle through one of the holes and tearing the netting. I'm trying to knit looser (I'm normally a pretty snug, but not tight, knitter) and it just looks uneven and sloppy to me.

I haven't washed my one loose sample yet; maybe the stitches will straighten out when I do. I need to make another one so that I can have one to try out.
