Crafty Goodness

After a decade or so of not making one I thought I should see if my knitting skills were up to the challange of knitting a cloth I designed. After 2 tries this is the result. It turned out pretty cute. Too bad the only colour cotton I happened to have on hand was white.

Yvonne's Double Flower Cloth

I got the most lovely email today from someone asking me if they could take a pattern I wrote and adapt it and post it to the web. Well, you could have knocked me over with a feather - I'd forgotten I'd written a pattern and posted it. I remembered when they mentioned it but until then it was totally out of my my mind.It has only been about 15 years since the pattern she mentioned was first written.

Back in the 90's I wrote a patten for a knitted dishcloth when I was part of a group called the Knit List.  The cloth looks like this:

I think its time for me to go and remake this pattern! Its been too long. The pattern can be found here
