Wordless Wednesday, hardly, come on you know me

Yeah I have thought about doing Wordless Wednesday but golly I always have something to say. Maybe one day I'll figure out how to say it all with just a picture, but so far not yet.

During contest time though I hope to minimize my personal stuff during the week and then catch you all up over the weekends.

Yesterday we tried a new stitch. I was pleased to see so many of you tired it. I used some white acrylic I happened to have near me for my swatch, the picture isn't the greatest but here is how it came out.

I think it would make a pretty strong dishcloth, but I would definitely have a border on the sides to help it maintain it's shape better. It was fairly easy and worked up quick. I casted on 15 stitches for my swatch.




Today's Contest Assignment: WEDNESDAY IS GUESS DAY

Below is a picture of a stash of Cotton yarn, some new some used, your assignment is to guess how many different balls or cones of cotton are shown in this picture.
Post your guess in the comment section to receive an entry today in this weeks contest. PLEASE don't be afraid to guess, right or wrong you still get an entry, OK?

Thank you Wendy for sharing your stash pictures with me and if anyone else has some unusual pictures to use for future Wednesday guess days please feel free to email them to me. I can use them all, anything knitting/craft related.

Well that's about it for me today. Don't forget to send your friends over as well. The more people that come to play the better.

Have a wonderful day, knit something that makes you happy, I plan on it.

I won't guess, since I already know the answer.....I did do the swatch of the stitch pattern, and like it...I figure if I make a cloth out of it, I will do some knit rows, and also add a border on the sides...to make it look finished.
Did you call the doctor??

Your stash is scaring me! I try not to stash, just buy yarn as the projects come along. But there seems to be a lot of yarn in the boxes under my bed.

No guesses, just wanted to say hi!
