I’m sorry I haven’t posted in quite a long time. March really did me in. I got pregnant (planned), my cousin died suddenly at the age of 38, I miscarried, and then my boyfriend lost his job. We’re facing a move to a new (to me) city, and it’s tax time, and frankly, I’ve been a bit overwhelmed. I haven’t been knitting as much as I normally would, because I just haven’t had a lot of energy.
That said, now it’s April, it’s grey and rainy and dreary out, but that’s okay, because we have planted our seedlings (varieties of tomatoes, peppers, squash, a cactus and a sunflower) and they are doing well, and I know “April showers bring May flowers” and all that jazz, so things are looking up. I’m starting to get excited at the prospect of moving to a new city (provided all goes as planned there), and to our planned vacation in May, and to trying to get pregnant again. 🙂
So, here are some of my recent projects:
This is what my latest dishcloth looked like while I was working on it. It was quite easy to do on the train, because it was a repetition of four rows that were quite easy to memorize. I did this for a friend of mine, at her request. The finished cloth:
I’m quite pleased wit how it turned out. I will post a pic of the next cloth I’ve started for her soon. She asked for 4 cloths in neutral colors, and I’m excited about the commission.
The other thing I did was a “Tribble” scrubbie:
This is a great way to use up remnants of dishcloth yarn, and it seems to wash my dishes REALLY well. 🙂 My only complaint about it is that it takes FOREVER for it to dry once you’ve used it, due to being so thick. Still, it was a quick-knit and I’m pleased with it.
