Praise !

"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"

The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.

Sittin' and knittin'

Just a little bit of knitting to keep my hand in.........literally !

It cooled down finally yesterday evening, with some thunder-boomers around, so I took a little time to sit on the porch and knit.  I had picked up a skein of this green, yellow and white Lily cotton (Sugar 'n Cream twists) while I was shopping for tan fabric.  I've needed new dishcloths, and nothing I can buy is the right size.
 I like a small cloth that just fits in my hand, not wrapping around it in the water.
So, here are the two patterns  I knitted. 
The first one is a Feather and Fan cloth........I had a pattern, but changed the stitch count to make it smaller.  I've tried to track down the pattern online for you, but it seems to have been removed.   I just did one set of rippling, with 4 stitches on each side border, and 4 rows of garter-stitch to begin and to end.....26 stitches.

The second cloth is eLoomanator's Diagonal Knit Dishcloth in pdf form.  I knitted until I had 37 stitches on the needle, rather than the 55 seen in her sample.   My cloth turned out to be about 6 1/2 inches square, I'm guessing, and I used size 7 needles.   If I had kept up my knitting, I would have been able to quickly figure out how to make the border knitting smaller and the center larger, but alas, I just wanted something quick to knit without involving the old noodle.  It's a really pretty pattern when it's balanced, like in her example.

  1. They both came out cute, I really like the color. I love greens;) That is just the kind of thing I like to do when it's hot here, like it is today!

  2. Cute! I also like to knit, but I'm not advanced enough for patterns which require slipping stitches (or anything beyond a basic knit/purl) but yours look great!
