I am wanting to knit some dish cloths but I am so tired of the few that I see on the Internet. They are always the same old knit/purl stitches.
Cables always add such great dimension to sweater, beanies, scarfs and throws/blankets.
My folks asked what I would like for X-mas, and I was thinking one of those interchangable cable needle sets.
So...I bought a "WHITE MAGIC KNITTER" to replace the long lost "PHILDAR BIG PHIL" knitting frame. (They're identical but for colour and a difference of 15 extra needles on the frame).
I recently posted about a package from Webs missing in transit on its route from the USA.
The following took place last night at work...
"Thank you for calling the Emergency Department. This is Bill. How can I help you?"
AS of Today I have not heard from the person knitting for me, maybe they are busy who knows.
Well, here it is. My Hemlock Ring Blanket.
