Friday Flaunt

Continuing to work on Kellie's Joseph's Coat Quilt Along, and not having much to show for my time, here are a couple little flaunts this week.

Dishcloths. They're not very exciting, but they're a useful necessity I've been making for more than 25 years. I've committed this pattern to memory. It's knitted on the diagonal beginning with 4 cast-on stitches. The yarn is Sugar'n Cream.
Last Saturday Gail Pan blogged about her free Christmas pattern stitched as Redwork. It's small enough to make in a few hours. I pencil-colored the star first, and then used green and gold floss for all the backstitch embroidery. This finished to 8-1/2" X 10-1/2". Thank you Gail, for this sweet design. Click here to download it from Gail's blog. Wishing all my blogospheric friends and family happy, anticipatory days in this blessed season. May the Spirit and joy of Christmas fill your heart.

Each Friday, bloggers who belong to Quilting Down Under chat group post a flaunt of their productivity. Visit Cinzia's blog to find links to all 24 Friday Flaunt-ers.

  2. Linda in this day of disposable everything its nice to see some real dishcloths.
    I (boo hoo) can't knit, but do use washable cotton cloths.

    Gail is such a giving lass, love her patterns. Thanks for the heads up.

  3. Linda I love those dishrags. A friend gave me one for Christmas just yesterday and I was so thrilled. I only have a couple and they're getting ragged. I have another friend who wants to knit some after knee surgery but doesn't have the pattern. Is it one you could tell me easily so I could pass it on to her? Oh and thanks for the link. I've printed that out and may make it today! blessings, marlene

  5. Dishcloth or facecloth, just a matter of geography really. My one and only is a crochet facecloth. I will certainly give the knitted one the diagonal pattern a try. Love the stitchery, must make it to match my completed Christmas Wish Table Topper!

    Row 2: K 2 sts, yo, K to end.
    Repeat Row 2 until there are 43 sts.
    Next row: K1, K2 tog, yo, K2 tog. K to end.
    Continue rows until 4 sts remain.
