Inbetween projects
Can't stop knitting. I've finished some big projects and trying to think what to knit next but in the mean time, I'm knitting dish cloths. Never seem to get tired of that while going through patterns.

You're sure right! Dishcloths are a great little pacifier project! I love 'em!
And in the end, the dishcloths are a great to have, or gift!

I usually have a stack of things I want to try out. Just to see if I like them.

I made double knit hot pads in Sugar n cream. I used the wave pattern from here. http://www.vogueknitting.com/resourc...colorwork.aspx

And I have been saving up odds & ends, to make an entrelac blanket.

Abby, those are wonderful! What do you mean by "double knit"? Are you making two the same and knitting them together or using two strands to knit?

Want to share the pattern you are using? I'm stuck on Grandma's favorite and making Alphabet cloths.

I used double side knitting in blue & green. I modified the pattern to give me 3 waves. It was fun. The double knitting made them thick enough to be used as pot holders. I liked the result so much that I made an oven mitt in stripes using the same technique. I made it long enough to come to my elbow. No more burns on my forearm from the oven rack.

There is a video on this site up by the banner.

Yup, dishcloths and simple scarves make wonderful "in between" or just brainless projects for when you want to be sociable or don't want to pay attention to a pattern.

Sure! I used a size US 5 and Tahki Cotton Classic. My favorite for dishcloths.

I also want to do this one from Mason Dixon Knitting. I'll won't use that yarn though of course.
