Mason Dixon Knitting

I kept hearing about the "Ballband Dishcloth" and was intrigued with the pattern. When I had the chance, I purchased the book "Mason Dixon Knitting." Not only do they have the "Ballband Dishcloth" patten, but several towels, mats, and blankets as well. I wanted the colors on these two pieces to really pop. When I finished the first cloth, I did another in reverse. The possibilities are endless with this pattern. I knitted these with Lion Brand Cotton Ease which a very nice yarn to use for making facecloths. They work up really fast and I do plan on making several more.

How Low Can You Go?

This is my first time with Size "0" Needles. This was my Mid-July Bookmark KAL. I made it with Aunt Lydia's #10 Crochet Thread. I love the color and the detail. This will be in the mail for my Mom. Now, on to the other three bookmarks that were requested when they saw this one.

Sunday Sock

My goal is to post Sunday Sock Progress on Sunday, but I just couldn't put this down. I love the Tofutsie's Yarn. It is working up so nice and feels so soft. I'll definately have to do more in all the colors. The pattern is a "crossover" pattern which is like a mock cable. It is an easy pattern to follow. Can't wait till next Sunday.

Lazy Days & Selfish Sundays


I knit all week for KAL's and others, but Sunday's are for me. Here is a pair of Chevron Socks from Charlene Schurch's Sensational Knitted Socks made with Online Supersocke Yarn. I love how the colors and the pattern turned out. Now on to my next Selfish Sunday Project.
