Off the Needles at Last!

It's been an interestingly crazy week which included singing at our former pastor's memorial service, a visit with the GK, volunteering at the hospital, choir practice on Tuesday night instead of the usual Thursday, helping a friend whose husband is ill, and of course, Thanksgiving.  Needless to say, not a whole lot of stitching got accomplished, but I do have several finishes, one of which I can't show yet.  Here are the others, however.



I finished another Seahawks hat and still have yarn leftover! They won yesterday, hurrah!




Mere's Almost Lost Dishcloth is a fun and quick knit and looks great in all different colorways.  If you've not tried it, you should.  I also discovered another fun pattern called the Mrs. Merryweather Dishcloth which is a good way to learn/practice the linen stitch.  You can find this pattern free along with 51 other dishcloths at KnitPicks!  So long for now, I'm off to the grocery story in between rain storms. Remember to check out the projects at Patchwork Times.

Love the hat and the dishcloths. I haven't knit much this week, either, perhaps tonight. . .

That dishcloth is turning up everywhere. I think I have to give into peer pressure and try one myself!

I love striped hats!
That IS a pretty dishcloth. It would make a lovely gift with a bar of handmade soap. Hmmm...

Thanks for the dishcloth site! Yours are adorable. Love your hat. My youngest daughter turned 25 on Saturday and asked for a Russel Wilson jersey. He grew up here in Richmond and has the same birthday as my daughter... just a year older.

So are you making another Seahawks hat with the leftovers? Or maybe a headband/ear muff? Love those washcloths - too pretty to use.

Forgive me, I love the hat but I'm not a Seahawk fan, I can't be, I'm in San Francisco! ;)

Sounds like it was a busy holiday weekend, but you did a lot of wonderful good hearted things. Hope you find some more relaxing stitch time soon.

Good looking hat...and beautiful dishcloths. I'm going to made a couple of those soon...just mighty busy with all the business of preparing for the holidays. It's not been so easy to find that "knitting time."
