One for the Road

I knit or crochet or sew every single day, but I no longer feel drawn to blog about it, so I've decided to discontinue this blog. I'll leave it up in it's present form so people can access my patterns, links, or anything else that might be useful or interesting.

I've been hanging out on Ravelry quite a bit lately, and I plan to start cataloguing my projects there. Stop over and say "hi" if you're a fellow "Raveler" (and if you're not, you really should be--it's fantastic!)--I'm kelleyjogirl on Ravelry. I'm also still on Etsy.

So . . . one final project to share here: K's long-awaited "lovey."

Yarn: Filatura Lanarota Circus, colorway #4 (85% cotton, 15% acrylic--very soft and drapey and wonderful, but a REAL PITB to work with because of how it's spun/plied)
Hook: size H
Thanks for reading!

Dishcloth Love!

I have a new favorite dishcloth pattern. It's quick and fun to work up, it lays flat, the edges are neatly finished, and it looks good on both sides. What's not to love?



Pattern: Double Bump Dishcloth
Yarn: Sugar and Cream, Summer Splash colorway
Needles: US size 7
Mods: none

It makes a lovely scarf too, so I'm using this pattern and my old stash of Red Heart Super Saver (left over from the kids' crocheted play food) for some charity scarves for the coming winter.
