Welcome to the Slow Sunday Stitching party where we celebrate all types of hand stitching including cross stitch, embroidery, hand piecing, knitting, crochet, rug making, english paper piecing, applique, hand quilting, etc. If you are creating something with your hands using needles and threads/yarns, we want to see what you're making!
I have finally finished a knitted cloth that says "Let's go campin". This photo shows the true colour of the yarn... I knit it in green for summer use in the great outdoors. I will be sending the cloth (with a thank you note) to my sister-in-law who hosted a family camping weekend on her property at the beginning of the summer.
This photo is side lit to try to show the pattern better. Pattern is by KnitWits and I would rate this pattern as "challenging" - or maybe it was me?! But with almost every row being different, it required lots of concentration.
I immediately started another (easier) cloth and learned a new stitch called "knit 1 below". It looks lacy and pretty, and there are only 4 different rows to repeat. This is the first pattern in a Leisure Arts book given to me by my friend Gail and I hope to work my way through the book to learn many new stitches.
I am feeling much better this weekend and hope to enjoy more knitting and some embroidery today. Apparently yesterday was "World Embroidery Day" and I shall celebrate today by stitching outdoors. If you would like to watch a video of embroidery projects from around the world, do treat yourself to this World Embroidery Day video.
** And Nicola at StitchDoodles is offering a free pattern to celebrate!

I am so glad that you are feeling better. I just may have to buy some cotton yarn to knit a few basic washcloths on an upcoming long plane trip. I really like the colors and patterns that you are using. Enjoy your stitching today.
Hi Kathy, I'm so pleased you are feeling better after a week recovering. This nasty Covid can take a while to get over, I understand. Thanks for the embroidery link, I've just spent a pleasant time watching the stitchers from around the world talking about their work.
The bee stitch does look lacey and complicated. It’s quite lovely. So glad to hear you are feeling better and up to slow stitching. Thanks for mentioning embroidery day. I shall check it out. May you continue to feel better each and every day.
So glad you're feeling better! That's a really cute washcloth. It will be fun to learn some new stitches, too. Enjoy that outdoor stitching!
glad you are feeling better!! I'm sure it wasn't fun being sick all week
Such a cute knitted cloth and a very nice gift. You really have to be concentrated when no rows are the same. Glad to hear you are better after testing positive for Covid. So far I've gone clear, but I guess we'll all get it.
You can see the outline of the pattern really clearly! And yes it does look challenging. Glad you are feeling better.
So glad that you are feeling much better, Kathy. Happy stitching!
Good to hear you are feeling better and have finished some knitting.
I am glad you are beginning to feel better, Kathy! Your knitted cloths are amazing.
