Needlecrafting

Well, I was going to do the Diva Challenge today but I don’t really care for Gourdgeous, which happens to be the featured tangle this week. I participated with it last year and just did not feel inspired to do so today.

Soooo, I’m sharing some pictures of the needlework I have done over the last several months. As you may recall, crocheting a few items for my grandson at my daughter-in-love’s request kickstarted me back into doing something productive with my hands once again. My next project after the items for Lauren, for Liam, was to knit some dishcloths. I have since purchased more yarn and made even more wonderful dishcloths.

As it turns out, the pattern I got from my friend at church happens to be a very popular pattern online (and I would guess, offline as well). I found it here and here. The only differences are that my directions say to use number nine needles instead of six or seven and knit up to forty-five stitches.

I bought some fallish colors but will need to attempt to make the purples colorfast before washing it with other towels and such.

Needlework ~ Lifeofjoy.meTiffany saw some fingerless mitts that she wanted. As an author, she is on her computer quite a bit and her wrists get sore. So we found a few free patterns online that she liked. The first is a fitted one with a bow. I attached the bow in a slightly different place but we like it. I am thinking of making her another pair but not sewing the bow on, so that we can attach different shapes each month. :)

Needlework ~ Lifeofjoy.meNeedlework ~ Lifeofjoy.meThe other pair we did in a lovely blue. It has a crocheted cable on the top. We had planned to do the cable in white but I completely forgot. :) The pattern is extremely thorough, complete with pictures and everything. The only problem I had with the pattern was that it took me twenty-two rows before I had the required seven-inch width. She loves these though, because they are very soft.

Needlework ~ Lifeofjoy.meNeedlework ~ Lifeofjoy.meWell, that’s what I’ve been up to. I did doodle with Dreamcatcher during service Sunday, on my sermon notes, so I have done some art with pen and paper.

Until next time, God bless,
