knitting recents

After finishing a sweater I sulked a bit because it didn’t turn out exactly like I hoped.

In fact, I put my needles away, finished books, read new books and watched TV series’ on Netflix. It was a nice break…that lasted, oh…about three days. ha!

I had the itch to knit again but my mojo wasn’t 100%. The cure? Dishcloths!

Kitchen cotton is cheap and squares are easy.

…and it turns out they work amazingly well at scrubbing dishes, pots and baby faces. I made five total and chucked the scrub brush into the garbage.

Using the same cotton yarn, I moved up to this “Girlfriend Market Bag” pattern (with a few modifications). I love it! It would be wonderful to have enough for grocery shopping. All of the bags would store nicely inside a single bag in the car.

The bag holds so much. It swallows stuff up and stretches out. Barely stretched to capacity…

…and it’s holding 10 skeins of bulky yarn.

The skeins are the velvety soft wool for my next project: The Babywearer. It’s a cozy poncho I can wear over myself and Lotus while she’s in the carrier. It’s going to be wonderful when the chilly weather returns. I can’t wait!
