Another Knitting Project Finished!

This is a Vine Lace Dish cloth I just finished last night. After several froggings and restarts, it went along smoothly enough. There are a couple of very minor mistakes in it, but oh well. If you can't see them, I'm not going to point them out.

I used the pattern from a link on Ravelry. You can find the directions HERE. Honestly, it isn't as hard as it looks. I love watching the pattern form as I knit. I'll definitely be doing another one of these in the future!

Next up on my needles is finishing my minimalist cardigan. Actually, the knitting for that is completed, I just need to put it together. Now that the weather has turned decidedly "autumnish", I can think about wearing more than a t-shirt. After that is done, I'm starting an upsized BSJ for Isaac. If you ever make a Baby Surprise Jacket, be warned: the pattern is addicting! It is cute, has a million variations, and works up quickly with a very little bit of seaming to finish.

Have a blessed day!

Your dishcloth looks lovely Lisa! I'm working on one right now too that I've had in my head for about a week. I've dubbed it "Crossroads" where it's just a regular reverse stockinette stitch with a garter stitch for the boarder on two sides only to emphasize the roads. In the middle of the roads is a cross. I'm about half way done with it right now. I should have it done in the next day or two.

I was going to start on socks, but the pattern I wanted to do in a "manly" varigated sock yarn just wouldn't have looked right as a man's sock. So I'm going to order some DPN's and go that route. I wanted to make a pair for hubby first, so I must wait for the needles to arrive. LOL ;) In the mean time I'll do dishcloths. :0)

What a beautiful dishcloth! The stitching is so dainty. I really like that.
Hey, Christmas is coming! hint, hint. Or how about a house warming gift? :-)
I'm shameless, aren't I?

Okay, if I pay you.... would you please send me one of these? It is beautiful! I don't think I'd want to wash dishes with it!

Your goofy online friend,
Janet :-)
