I really have FOs and other stuff!

Here is my Starry, Starry Night all finished. This was an easy pattern and one that I will most likely use again. I wasn't as pleased with my stars as I should have been. I think because the weight of the yarn was just too light. Next time I will make them out of a worsted weight instead. I also love the back as it is just as pretty as the front. Who's it for, why my first grandbaby of course...LOL Now if I can just get one of my children to get married, so that I will one day have a grandchild. Overall, a fun and pretty fast project.


I have also finished up several dishcloth's. I am making them for a wedding shower that I am going to next weekend. I wanted to have 7, one for every day of the week.


Some are knitted and the other's are crocheted using a double ended hook. They are called Cro-hook dishcloth's. I really love these as they are one color on one side and another color on the other side.

I have also made 2 of the Garterlac Dishcloth's by Criminy Jicket's

These are so easy and sooo much fun to make as they are all knitting, no purling!


Have you seen the new Sugar and Cream Stripes?
This will be so great to use on more garterlac dishcloths!


I have also finally sat down and made some stitch markers and row counters. I had seen them everywhere but couldn't bring myself to buy any, as I knew I could make them myself. Now mind you these are my very first and they aren't really fancy, but I can't wait to use them.

2007_09070004 Here is the row counter, for up to 6 rows. I am also going to make one that is adjustable. But, that's another post...LOL It's hard to see in this photo, but that is a little bee at the end.

Here are the cute A - H 2007_09070007 row marker's that Cat Bordhi talks about on her YouTube video. Of course, once I have been bitten by the crafty bug, I just kept

on making stitch markers.

Here are the other one's I made. Don't you love the2007_09070001
middle one above with the curly wire, I was going for a yarn look.
Aren't they just adorable! Well, now this gives me a great excuse to go buy more beads!

Boy, I am glad my hubbie works at Michaels, speaking of which. They have their big employee sale next weekend and all of the employee's get 40% off of their entire order... YIPPEE!

But, that's not all... they also give each employee, 25 discount cards to give to friends for 25% off of their entire order. So, I am taking my cards to share with my friends at the Charlotte Purl meetup tomorrow.

take care...and that's all for now...boy this was a long post!

  1. Oh that star blanket is adorable! Love your stitch markers too!

  2. The star blanket is really cute, great job!

  3. Connie where do you get time to do so much? My stitch markers don't look anything like yours, that's for sure. I really don't use them that much; sometimes when I knit hats on the round. The blanket is beautiful and your future grandson/granddaughter will love it. You will have some, I'm sure. Your daughter is beautiful. I recorded a podcast once when I was doing Learning 2.0 exercises with the Library. I used I stutter when I'm in front of a microphone or my mind goes blank, so I had to write what I was going to record. LOL...Congratulations, you'll be great. I look forward to the first episode.
