Saturday- Chistmas Knitting Has Begun

Well I started some Christmas knitting today. Dishcloths for the SIL's. First one I did was this Starfish pattern by Sew Funky. it was a simple and easy to memorize pattern. I of course made a few errors but all in all it came out pretty good. Good enough for me to still gift it away.
Pattern number two... this pattern caught my eye right from the start. I had never done this butterfly stitch before but it's pretty easy once you do a couple and I LOVE how this cloth looks. I don't think pictures do it justice. It's called Christmas Cloth by Ribbed for your Pleasure. I highly recommend this cloth, it's fun, easy and looks great.

I made a couple errors on this one too, but again it's probably only noticeable by me so no worries.

While I was knitting Adam was busy building. Doesn't he look like a little carpenter in his Thomas The Train tool belt?

We did make it to the BIG POOL today and got to swim for a couple hours. He loves to jump and go under water. There was a casualty... he kicked my bottom lip with his knee and I now have a very plump lip, who needs botox when you have grand kids who like to swim, right?

Well it's only moments away from midnight and I am ready for bed. Tomorrow is another day... hope you are all snug in your beds too.

Just a reminder contest starts October 1st.

OUCH!! I hope your lip feels better today!!

I love both those Christmas cloths, but particularly the second one. If I'm looking at it right, it almost has a smocked look to it. Memories of childhood and little smocked dresses coming to mind.

I have got to get started on my Christmas projects, too! I'm so far behind this year.

I like both those cloths. I haven't tried the butterfly cloth yet, but it looks wonderful. She has lots of slip-stitch designs on her blog as well that turn out pretty good.

Well I hope you have a good day. don't you love it when the kids do physical damage? LOL. Wouldn't change it for the world!

Christmas knitting has been on my mind too. I need to get my gifts knitted before I'm stressing about running out of time again this year.
I love Adam's tool belt. That's too cute.
Yay!!! It's almost contest time again! Woo Hoo!

Great Cloths! I need to start knitting some too. They are so great to have on hand for all those little gifts that come up round the holidays. Everyone loves them!

Love your Christmas cloths! That photo of Adam reminds me of my eldest son(22)...He((at 3 0r 4 yo) ALWAYS had a toy tool belt on.At the time his favorite show on TV was This Old House. We thought for sure he'd grow up to be a carpenter :)
