Finally finished

I finally finished Hubby's first pair of socks. There are some mistakes but socks are very forgiving. I know they will get easier as I make more. This was the first pair with a pattern. He really likes them and that is all that matters. These where made with 2 circular needles.

Grandmother's Favorite Dishcloth

This was much easier than I thought it would be. I used a 40 peg rake with a 3/8" gauge (I think). Michelle sent me a fabulous video explaining how to do it. I will be making more of these.

The cone holder was made by my dear husband. It works so well. Now my cones don't fall over when I am working with them.

Just some more stuff

I really like the look of the knitted cloths.
This is a new pattern for me from Lion Brand.
They have the stitch of the week and many of their patterns are perfect for the cloths. This is done on size 7 needles and of course I use my knitpicks.

These are several of my looms. The darker one is also from Lion Brand. It is the Old Fashioned Knitting Board. I love the feel and look of it. On it is a scarf (which looks knitted on both sides) done in Lion Brand Homespun.

The little one in the front is from Cindiwood Crafts. It is perfect for cloths but it doesn't have the rounded pegs so as of now I am having a little trouble with it.

Now the long one in the back: I don't remember where I got it. The pegs are really close together and I am thinking about making a scarf for the Red Scarf project in January.
