A Deceptive Dishcloth

June 11, 2015


Liar’s Cable Rib Dishcloth This is a dishcloth based on a Mock Cable Rib.  It is pretty easy, but it looks complicated.  The trick is holding the yarn over in the back of the work while you pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch and yarn over.  The size is easily adapted by adding […]

Seaside Market Bags in Land-locked Kansas

June 5, 2014


Seaside Market Bag Seaside Market Bag Worsted The seafoam stitch has always intrigued me.  I saw this colorful cotton yarn, and I decided to give it a try.  It makes a nice market bag, even in land-locked Kansas.  The crayon colored bag is knitted with chunky yarn, and the purple/ blue/ green bag is made with […]

Cats and Dogs!

March 10, 2010


CATS AND DOGS WATER BOTTLE COZY This cozy for your non-descript, reusable 32 oz water bottle makes going green more fun.  The cotton yarn absorbs condensation, so you won’t leave embarassing puddles on your car seat or desk.  No one will mix up your stylin’ bottle with his or her boring old unadorned container.  Besides, […]
