KnitSteph Plurked about Dish Rag Tag sign ups and after reading about it, I couldn’t help but sign up for it! For some reason I’ve been wanting to make dishcloths lately, but I don’t have any cotton yarn! I sold it a while back when I suddenly found myself not wanting to knit a dishcloth ever again. I can’t remember what brought that about in the first place, but I find myself wanting to make them again. I think that this will be a lot of fun to do and I’m looking forward to knitting dishcloths again!
The first issue of Knotions is up! There are some great patterns and I really like the layout of the website. I’m considering the Terra hoodie or the Autumn Leaves cardigan for the sweaters worth of yarn I have. Both look like something I could wear a lot. I love how they have Ravelry links on each pattern page so you can see how many people are working on that pattern and it takes you to the Ravelry page for that pattern. It makes it easy to cast-on, queue, or add it to your favorites.
I need some ideas for what to make with this yarn!
I have four skeins of this Kikki yarn that I bought on sale way back when I was still new to knitting. No idea what I thought I’d make with it, but the time has come to knit it up! I don’t knit for kids (don’t know many folks with kids that aren’t knitters, don’t have any myself), but I’m open to just about anything else! I’d consider myself an advanced knitter, so anything is fair game aside from kids knits. Here’s a photo of the yarn and some details:
Yardage: 82 yards/50 grams
Gauge: 19.0 = 4 inches (according to yarn specs)
Needle size: US 7 – 9 or 4.5 – 5.5mm
Fibers: Cotton, Acrylic, Rayon, Linen
Texture: Plied (splits easily)
One last thing. A friend of mine on Plurk (Robin) is doing a fantastic yarn raffle for Breast Cancer on her blog. She’s supporting her friend who is doing the 2 day 40 mile Walk for Breast Cancer in Charlotte, NC. For every $10 you donate, she’ll put your name in for one chance on the yarn drawing and anyone who donates $40 ($1 for each mile), will get an extra chance in the drawing. Even aside from the great drawing being held, this is a cause I really like to support, so please consider donating for this great cause and help Helen get to her goal of $2,200!
