Finished Project

Done! I will launder the hand towel later. For now it has pride of place in the kitchen.

This is just a sample of my hand-knit kitchen dishcloths and a couple of towels. I took the time to tidy the drawer where these are kept after I got the photo and now it’s much easier to see what I have.

Next up in my WIP list is a pair of socks. I’ve already turned the heels and started on the leg of the socks so it shouldn’t take that long to finish and I’ll have two finished projects for the Spring Cleaning WIP knit-a-long.

I’m going to work on the Ten Stitch Blanket for awhile before I get back to the socks so my gauge doesn’t change on me. It happens. I’ll have to watch the gauge on the socks when I start knitting again. I’m pretty good at adjusting to gauge after leaving something for a period of time but if I get involved with something on streaming video it’s easy to lose my focus and have to frog back to keep the gauge consistent.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.

  1. I use Jo Torr’s Vanilla Sock Pattern. Found it on Ravelry many years ago. The lace pattern is a Yarn Over Cable that I found in one of Barbara Walker’s pattern books. It makes a nice decorative ribbing that I’ve used on hats and socks before.
