Wash Cloths on Parade

Lots of crafting has been going on here. I'm still working on the pink apron dress, and I'm also knitting a pair of hand warmers for my chilly home and chilly office. I've also been doing lots of baking and cooking-- my skills are continuing to improve and I'm actually starting to enjoy it.

I thought I would show you some of the wash cloths in that stack on my dresser I mentioned a few weeks ago. 

This one is my favorite. The stitch is called  bee stitch and it is very, very addictive, although I had to watch three different videos to learn how to knit one below. I can't remember the name of this yarn, but I love it and want to buy more. I think it would be perfect for a lap blanket. Fortunately I do remember where I bought it, so I should be able to find it again.

The above wash cloth is feather and fan. The pattern for this is located HERE.

Double Bump Washcloth. I was hooked on this pattern until I discovered the bee stitch. It looks good in self-striping yarn.

This last one is a classic wash cloth knit on the bias. It is definitely not addictive; in fact, it's extremely boring in my opinion. But it turns out beautiful.

Tomorrow I have the whole day to myself, so hopefully I'll make good progress on my WIPs.  Have a happy Sunday.

I want to learn the bee stitch, it is a great looking pattern and you are right, it would make a wonderful blanket.
I hope enjoy your day off tomorrow, we will be hard at work here.

Feather and fan. *swoon*

I can see why you wouldn't want to use them - they're gorgeous! I love the double bump and, of course, the feather and fan (you taught me how to knit that pattern!).

Hey, did you see this?

It made me think of you. It would be perfect for Lily :)

I love that first one too, the color and stitch are gorgeous.

Love them all. I'm working on a little baby doll blanket for my girls. Well, actually, I'm working on two at the same time. Washcloths are next. I bought some yarn made of seaweed so we'll give that a try.

Boring is sometimes good LOL. (Besides, those garter stitch ridges make for good scrubbing action.) Looks like you've been busy and having fun -- they're beautiful!

I love all of them, especially the Bee stitch. Lately cotton has been bothering my hands so I've been avoiding it. But maybe I could just knit a few rows a day?

I can't wait to try the bee stitch!

I am new here. What is the bee stitch? Loving all these patterns.
