KNIT A RIVER VOLUNTEERS

Okay everyone!

This is the place to sign in and log your hours for the Knit A River fundraiser!  (See my posting titled Gerard and everyone else)

Simply by participating in Knit A River, you can help us earn a grant for WaterAid.  BIG THANKS HERE to Gerard for bringing this fantastic event to our attention and being the inspiration for this Knit Along.  Here's what you need to do!

1) Sign in here:  Reply to this topic with your name (first name is fine) so we know who is participating.

2) Knit blue squares for Knit A River (That's the point, after all!) Keep track of how many hours you spend on your volunteer knitting.  It's the honor system, so no rounding up to the nearest half-hour.

Following the pattern

I was so encouraged my my recent success at following a pattern that I decided to revisit a pattern that had previously eluded me and I'm proud to show you the project, the Double Eyelet Heart Dishcloth:

Double Eyelet Heart Dishcloth 

Again, I can't say that I didn't make any mistakes, but I didn't leave any behind and I only had to unravel 3 rows.  

Lace shawl

My mom once told me about seeing a very fine lace shawl, so lightweight that the sales lady was able to draw it through one of her rings.  Has anyone made something like this?  Do you know of any good patterns?  I was thinking it would make a nice birthday gift.
