New knits

Normally I wouldn’t call this knitting but it’s a knitted fabric in the end soooooooooo. Joann’s had Knifty Knitter kits on sale for $10.00. Three looms, scissors, measuring tape, and the tool to get the loops off all for $10.00. Couldn’t resist.

In the instruction book that came with it there was a pattern for a braided scarf that was made on the little spool loom. I was supposed to use the 5 stitch side but used the 8 stitch side instead. The strands probably would have been longer had I used the right side but oh well.

I had this pink yarn that I had purchased to make a different scarf for a friend but she is no longer deserving of that. That’s another story for my other blog. So I made the tubes and braided them together, it was really very quick, and this is what I got.

I have also recently become addicted to knitted dishcloths. They’re great as they only take a couple of hours to knit and get my mind off the large hours and hours of stockinette I have on other projects. I’ve already completed 7 and have enough yarn for a lot more. Here are some of the completed one’s (I’ve given 2 of them away).

As usual the colors aren’t entirely accurate but they’re close.

Well it’s time for me to get to karate now. I’ll post at you later.
