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.
