Spring Is Here, Despite All The Snow, Really!

Of course I can not forget my furry little friend and helper with creating balls of yarn for this project.

I hear the robins singing, but the temperature is still a little nippy and the snow, yikes! I wish it would just disappear! I finished a pair of spring booties for a little baby boy along with a cotton watch cap to match! This is my second attempt! My first knitted creation was a bit too small. The little bundle of joy is growing so fast! I am delivering the goods this week before he has another growth spurt!

Cotton Knit Dishtowel!

I just finished my first dishtowel. This pattern is easy, simple and so useful! The pattern is by Cristina B. Shiffman. All you need is 100% cotton yarn worsted weight and size 7 needles with a stitch marker. It knits up quickly and beautifully! I am beginning to make some more in bright spring colors; peach, lemon and baby green! I also made a simple, but elegant dish cloth. The pattern is simple and quick. You decide how large you want it to be. I have displayed the pattern for you to see how I whipped this up!
I made this dish towel and matching washcloth for a bride to be! I was so excited to be a winner of a small vase of fresh flowers from the bridal shower I attended! Spring is here!
