As usual I was indecisive as to what the prize would be this week and after several hours just this morning I decided on 2 balls of cotton yarn, enough to make two dishcloths. I thought the yellows would be a perfect color for a "sunny" summer contest kick off.
TUESDAY'S CONTEST ASSIGNMENT-
Tuesday is try a new stitch day. I am starting to find this assignment one of my favorites. I am all about learning new stuff. You don't need to create a whole dishcloth or anything unless you want to, just a swatch to see what the stitch looks like, if you like how it works up and then have for a reference for future projects. I will be trying this out right along with you and will post my swatch tomorrow.
NEW STITCH- GARTER STITCH EYELET LACE
Works on an odd number of stitches. (ie: cast on 35)
Rows one through four: Knit.
Row Five: (Knit two together, yarn over), repeat to last stitch and knit the last stitch
Repeat five rows until desired size ending on row 4
Tell us how you like this stitch pattern, share what color you decided to test it out in, perhaps you are already familiar with it what have you made using this stitch technique? Whatever, just leave a comment today for your entry. Even if you don't have time to try any comments counts. OK?
Okay then looks like we are off and running. I hope you are all excited, I sure am.
Have a wonderful day.
