Now that the Olympic Knitathon, hosted by Andrea at This Knitted Life, is over and the prize winners announced, I am pleased to let you know that I won the Artistic Impression prize. This is the very first time I have ever won a knitting prize and I am tickled pink!
I wanted to knit a washcloth to go with some homemade soap I purchased for a very special friends birthday. After searching around Ravelry, I found a stunning free pattern and had the perfect neutral yarn in my stash. Even though I was hurting from my cubital tunnel syndrome, I still managed to pull this off in one day. That’s how easy it is. Here are the lovely details:
Ravelled Here: The Almost Lost Washcloth
Started & Finished: 8/12/16
Needles Used: US 8 (5.0 mm)
Yarn: Peaches & Creme Solids in the color Ecru
Modifications: Provisional Cast On and Kitchener Stitch Grafting
I found out after I finished that there is a different technique to use with Kitchener stitch for a garter pattern. You can obviously see where it was grafted together and the next time I make this, I will use the proper method. Here are some pics showing how I did it. You can roll over each image to see the text.
Here’s the pretty and my prize of Madelinetosh Sock in the color Neon Peach (it was hard to photograph because of the neon and looks more pink here…in real life, the peach is more pronounced):
In other news, I’m still not knitting and trying to heal. I wish it would hurry up because I have big plans and want to finish my current WIPs. I have talked to another blog friend about blogging about the books I’m reading, so you may see some of that soon!
Until next time, Happy Knitting!
