We meet here every Sunday to celebrate the art of all varieties of hand stitching. If it involves a needle (or 2), and thread/yarn, and stitching taken with your hands, we want to know about it!
Here's a little finish that I am proud of - my first knitted dishcloth.
There are so many issues with this thing, from the uneven cast on (while I tried to remember how to do that!) to the wonky edges, it's not my best work. But you can see the whale pattern and I really enjoyed making it so that's what matters.
Thank you for all the helpful ideas in the comments on last Sunday's post for ways to deal with knots in the yarn.
I've already cast on the stitches (more evenly this time) and have started another cloth. I'm using straight needles this time to make it a little easier for myself since that's how I learned to knit. I'm enjoying this Sudz yarn which is specifically for making dishcloths.
Today I will be hand stitching the binding for my August mini quilt. You can see how I stitch the split hanging sleeve right into the top binding.
