Knitting Projects

I posted the beginning of my knitting venture a while back. Daughter Tina had started me on it as I was re-couping this summer. I did get my shawl finished ...



and the back view ....

Plenty easy ; just knit 4 purl 4 until its the length you need.
Then I saw these amazing dishcloths, and just had to try my hand at that. Natural color cotton yarn with red stripes, done in a waffle-weave pattern. (I varied the designs)....

and with blue stripes.....
I have quite a pile of these started for .... well... whatever

They were fun to do, good practise, and functional as well.
I am now started on another knitting project, which I will post later.
I like knitting in the evenings, when it is too dark to paint (I like good daylight to do my oil painting) and when I am too tried to do anything else. It keeps my hands busy while Hubby is watching TV and eating ice cream :0

Lovely. I've got to get back to my prayer shawl making. With our concern over Suzette I haven't picked mine up in weeks. Plus our son being here from California for 8 days.
