Seed Stitch Heart Dishcloth
Well, this one took me two days to complete (yay!). I got much closer to gauge this time. It was suppose to be a 9" square, and I think I got it to be 8 1/2" wide and 7 1/2" long. I don't know how I can get it to be any looser to hit gauge. Maybe my yarn was just too thin? Once again, I used the Peaches & Creme yarn (#179 Aqua Mist Ombre) and size 8 needles. This pattern was from "Love to Knit Dishcloths" by Evelyn A. Clark, published by Leisure Arts.
I'm thinking my next project will be a bib for a friend who is pregnant. I bought a lot of yarn to make baby stuff for her (well, mostly a blanket), but the yarn is kinda coarse, so I don't want to make a blanket out of it. I figure I'll make a few bibs, wash them, and see how they turn out. If the yarn softens up, I'll use it for a blanket. I also downloaded some patterns for some soakers, so hopefully in a month or so I'll be brave enough to make a few soakers for Dalton. I have some beautiful wool yarn just dying to be used for something. :) Of course, I'll have to make a practice soaker first on some not-so-great yarn (hee hee). Ok, enough ramblings from me for the day. Happy knitting!!
