Color - Pinterist Why Do You Show Me These Things?
I have been pinning things to Pinterest for almost a month now.
Is Pinterist a waste of time or a chance to be able to find things I loved?
I found this pattern for a knit dishcloth using small pieces of left over cotton Sugar n Cream yarn. A friend had given me a bag of her leftover yarns with pieces ranging from about 20" up to about 2/3 of a skein.
This was the perfect project to use them up and use them up I did!
I enjoyed doing this and it was almost mindless relaxing knitting, but I probably could have had a good start on or finished another sock in the same amount of time.
I am not a pastel person, but there is something about these colors and the way they work together that is mesmerizing.
I still have to work in all the ends but that too will be a good wataching TV project.
In this closeup you can see the texture of the stitch I used. I do love that too and it was one of those things you could do by memory after the first few rows. Not only was it an easy stitch to do, but because of the pattern of the stitch and the multiple colors used it does not show mistakes. In case you didn't know, I am still working on my word for 2010 - which was IMPERFECTION!
I thought this made an interesting puzzle.
