Here is my latest knitted dishcloth to add to my cotton blanket. It is a lighthouse which hopefully can be seen here!! :) It was fun to knit because of the variety with making the little holes that represent the light coming from the lighthouse.
I do find I am learning much from knitting these cloths. I am really a beginner, at least that is how I feel. From the cloths I have learned how to recognize the right side/wrong side of the piece better. I also have learned to slip, slip, knit as well as a yarn over on the purl side.
I also have completed another yellow sun pattern like the one I showed a week or so ago. Here was the bummer though; I ran out of cotton when I was casting off!! I was really praying to get through the second one with my leftovers. So, undaunted, I put the piece on a stitch holder and moved on to the lighthouse. I will get to Walmart soon for more cotton!!
Next on my list is a lobster pattern. I will post a picture when I am done. This is quite fun! Eventually I will decide how many of each pattern I will do in which color. I think my colors will be limited to blue, yellow and white. These are nice cottage colors. This is the look I am going for in the house. I love the cottage look with crisp, clean, simple decor! :)
(Why am I not at church you ask? Well, after all that talk about knowing how far I can push my back, I overdid the gardening yesterday. There is no way I can sit in a metal chair so I am home resting my back today. I thank God for sermons online! I will pick one to listen to today as I knit!)
"I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed of hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything thorugh him who gives me strength." Phil. 4:11-13
