WIP Wednesday.......

I ordered this material and it is being washed and dried as I speak.  I don't wash fabrics I am going to quilt as I like the "puckery' look they get when they get washed and dried after being sewn but with clothing or anything else it always gets washed, dried and ironed first.  This material is going to be made into pillowcases with a contrasting cuff and will have crocheted edging.  I've never done either so we shall see how it all turns out....good I hope!
I'm almost done with Grandma's Favorite Knitted Dish Cloth, another first in knitting. I'm really enjoying this pattern and I can watch t.v. and knit it without messing up!  Hurray!  I'm also loving the Knitpicks Dishie yarn that I'm using.  I highly recommend it and I like it much better than Peaches and Creme.  I'll be making lots of these and may be selling them on my blog and at the Farmer's Market too.....we'll see.  But this one is for a very special cousin of mine.  She doesn't know it yet but she is my new "product tester"! LOL!

The I-cord for my chair pad just goes on and on and looks like a pile of snakes.  But it's another great t.v. project or audio book project as I could do it blindfolded about now! LOL!  I need 27 feet and I now have 12 so almost halfway there!  Yippee!  Oh, and Ruth, yes, it will get wound up into a circle for my chair pad and sewn together by hand.  You could actually do any shape you wanted as it is so flexible....even a square or a rectangle if you wanted.  I'm thinking on mine that each one will be a different color.  I used a bulky washable wool.

I have many other projects in progress but these are the only ones I've made any progress on this week.  I can't wait to see all of yours as it is always inspiring!  Take care!


  1. Love that dishcloth pattern! I can do it anywhere - even at the Music in the Mountains show, in the dark.

    Can't wait to see hoe your cushion turns out.

  2. I am going to need to get myself some of that Dishie yarn--Sugar and Cream is so yard on my hands and so far I am very happy with the other yarn I have ordered from Knit Picks.
    Just thought I would add that I like crinkly/puckery quilts too--and your pillow cases will be so bright and cheery!

  3. Hi Sam--I am back after reading your comment on my Monday post regarding cute knits for boy Grandies-and well, the Milo vest is perfect for boys too. The designer, Georgie Hallam on Ravelry, has several designs for sweaters or vests for boy and all her patterns contain multiple sizes--AND, her patterns are the best written patterns I have found. She is my go to designer, even beginning to design for adults too, now.

  4. I like the idea for the seat pad, though sewing it together will be a pain. Your dishcloth yarn is pretty, I love to use knitted dishcloths

  5. These look great - can't wait to see the transformation of your "snake"! Also love your pillowcase fabric so will be keeping an eye out for the FO!

    Thanks for your lovely comment on my Wips yesterday xxx

  6. Oh I like the sound of pillows already. I am sure you will do great!

  7. I'm sure the pillowcases will be lovely. I swear it looks like you are knitting with toothpicks. I can see why your fingers might ache. If I crochet too much, my left thumb will start to hurt -- I fell down many years ago and twisted the whole thumb completely back and it's never been the same since. :/ Hope you have a great Friday. Tammy
