Happy St. Patrick’s Day !

This dishcloth is a free pattern from KrisKnits – it is called

Reversible Rib Scarf

For Spring…love the color and the feel of this new yarn. It is called Prima by Debbie Bliss – 80% Bamboo, 20% Wool. Two skeins of a periwinkle color. Nice drape. The pattern is called “Reversible Garter-Rib Scarf” from the Acorn Street Shop in Seattle. A free handout there at the shop if you buy some yarn. Their shop is full of wonderful yarns and samples – the ladies that work there are very nice and helpful.



Lil’ Shamrock

Irish Knitting Prayer:

May your yarn be plentiful,

your needles be swift,

and may your gauge be correct

on your very first click!


I was cruisin thru Ravelry and came upon this pattern by Vickie Howell. It takes a very small amount of yarn and so quick to make. I used some left over Dream In Color wool yarn and made the small size. I am going to make some coasters later using some dishcloth cotton and bigger needles. Still not feeling well, so that will have to wait.
