Yarn Along


I decided over the weekend that I needed a little knitting break from my two large projects, the elderberry shawl and the valley cardigan.  I am loving both projects but they are intricate and sometimes slow in the progress. So that is why this week I am knitting some simple dishcloths.  I used worsted weight cotton and size seven needles then casted on 44 stitches.I decided to a double moss stitch pattern, simple, classic and relaxing!

On my reading front I am still on the same book Whitethorn Woods by Maeve Binchy.  It is a fantastic read, so far I would recommend her book if you like lots and lots of characters.  Each chapter is a short story in a way and every once in a while there is a chapter that ties some of the characters together.  She does a beautiful job weaving all of the little plots together.

  1. I love knitting washcloths and have a drawer full. They are often my ride in the car project as they fit so easily in my purse.
    Warmly,

  6. Ah - LOVE Maeve Binchy. I haven't read Whitethorn Woods; I'll have to add it to my queue. :)

    I just added your shawl to my favourites on Ravelry - for sometime when I have time to think about starting a big project (after I'm done with the sweaters I'm working on for this Christmas!). It's gorgeous & I love the yarn you're using for it.
