Bits and pieces

I’ve been busy with the Dishcloths New Techniques swaps on Swap-bot. The one for May has been about ‘pick up and knit’ patterns. I decided to do one using a log cabin design and one using domino squares. I love making dishcloths and plan to start doing some Christmas designs soon. Next month the new technique is entrelac and garterlac. I had a little go at it but wasn’t very good, so I think I’m going to need quite a bit of practice!!

Meanwhile, here are this months cloths…




And, for a change from one type of cotton, I decided to try Adriafil Fruttamix (100% cotton). I loved the colours so thought I’d try it out by making some sachets ready to fill with lavender or pot pouri. These will be sent to a friend for selling at the next church fayre. I loved the Fruttamix. It was easy to work with and the stitches are well defined and even. It doesn’t split easily which is a bonus. And the colours are bright and fresh. I now want to try some more Adriafil as I am impressed. So, watch this space 🙂
