Thanks goes to Meredith, who made about a bazillion of these (and others) for the holidays. The power of suggestion is strong in blog land. This is the Primrose dishcloth pattern, which had a broken link for a while, but has been resurrected over at Love the Bluebird. I made a few of these a couple of years ago, and used them until they turned to rags. The pattern is super easy and fast. Grab some cotton yarn and an H hook, and you'll have one or two done before you need to wash the dinner dishes.
I'm also making this scarf right now, but am waiting on more yarn so I'll just show you when it's all done. Kristen made one too, so you can go have a look while you're waiting for me to finish mine.
I just finished the Orient Heights scarf made out of a bulky Louisa Harding that I had squirreled away to make a poncho that never happened. It's really a pretty blue, very warm, and well, bulky. I'll have to wait for a trip to Tahoe to wear this, it's just never cold enough here in the valley unless I want to go out at say, 3 o'clock in the morning. No.
Do you like fish tacos? I tried a new sauce recipe for fish tacos and it was quite amazing. I used fresh cilantro and a jalapeno pepper and it was like a party in my mouth. If you don't have a food processor, I'm sure a blender would work fine.
Katrin's blog. There is an Advent calendar tutorial over on Quiltmania, and she has already completed 4 of the blocks, maybe more by the time I'm done fiddling with this post, and I have been compelled to join in. There is a new block released every day (except weekends) up to Dec. 15th., and they are already on block 5. I have completed 2 so far, but I am finding that I'm so anal about every little bit and bob that goes into it (plus I'm spending a lot of time searching my craft bins for said bits and bobs), that it's really taking me a long time to make just one. If you decide to join in, be forewarned, all the instructional videos for each block are in French. But they are well done, and it's easy to figure out how to proceed.
Heading off to start block three. Toodles.
