What's Full of Double Crochets and Getting Mailed to South Dakota?
This stuff! I'm happy to say that Sprout the Squid seems to approve of my star-shaped dishcloth. You always want to please your squid.
I haven't got time for a quality post (or quality photos, ugh) today, but I did want to get these things up to share, and I'm looking forward to catching up with all of your Friday posts tonight or tomorrow. :D
this pattern, and loved how quickly and enjoyably it worked up.
this book. I love the look of mitred squares, but hadn't tried one yet. The book has multiple styles/methods of them, so there may be more on the way...
This was one of those instances where the yarns matched a little too well, I think. This is three colours (yellow, a variegated one, and red) of Bernat Handicrafter Cotton (which somehow seems softer/easier to work with to me than Sugar and Cream, but that may be a figment of my imagination...), and they're so well-matched that the striping effect of the square got a little lost. Next time, more contrast in my colours.
I also whipped up one of the ever-popular Olivia's Butterfly hats, a pattern I've been wanting to make since I saw it on an FO Friday a million years ago. This owl was nice enough to model it for me (it's way too small for my giant skull).
Definitely more hats-and-cloths on the way before I box it all up to send to the Pine Ridge Reservation later this month. :)
Check out other people's Friday goodies over at FO Friday and Fibers on Friday.
