In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Candy Corn Dishcloth Give Away

I had another post almost ready to go, but I decided to join in the
 
that was going to motivate me to finish some projects...
remember...
I joined it a few weeks ago....
and did it one time
 I just keep on starting new projects....
I'll finish something someday...
I will I promise!

As a matter of fact, when I was in Brown County I decided to take some unfinished projects.  The first one I worked on was this scarf for a friend.  It's her yarn, and she started knitting it a year ago.  And one day while we were at the yarn store chatting away, I volunteered to finish it for her and she jumped at the chance!

still not finished....almost, though....and those Marie Claire mags...do they come in English?  I love them, but I don't speak French.  It's one of the times I don't feel guilty about looking at the pics and not reading the articles!  But every now and then, I look over to read the article and no can do.
 
So the garter stitch scarf lasted about an evening...then I had to try something that has been on my mind for awhile...I was staying in a cabin, I had the time to think, and my creative juices were flowing.
 This yarn along is about what you are reading and what you are knitting or crocheting.  
I had this cute mystery book I was reading.  It's one of those Berkley Crime Mystery Series books, and this is the first in the series.  The reason I bought it should be obvious!  It's about a beekeeper.  It has tips in it about beekeeping, and a few recipes too.  It took me awhile to get into the mystery part of it, but I did, and will probably get the second one in the series.
The candy corn colored yarn....I knew it wasn't an unfinished project.  It was something I had mentioned to one of my crochet friends....hmmm, come to think of it, I think she might be my only crochet friend now....and she had told me to "get on it."  
"K" are we it?  Is it just us two?

 Anyway, I made several sizes....small ones for bunting...which are finished, except for the stringing along!  (jeeeeesh, I know!)
 Big ones for dishcloths.  
Apparently dishcloths have been on my mind.  
Why? You ask... well...
*I think of Sugar and Cream yarn as dishcloth yarn.  And I have a stash. Big stash. It's what I used to use when I was learning a new stitch. Then I'd have a dishcloth out of my new stitch.  
* My candy corn colored yarn is Sugar and Cream, hence, dishcloth yarn.  
*And my blogger friend, Mel from Day to Day just had a huge dishcloth exchange, and giveaway.  Go check out her dishcloth post.  LOVELY dishcloths. Flowers and stars and stripes and such.
 And I won one of her give away dishcloths!  I haven't received it yet, but when I do I will post it on the next yarn along.  
So, I decided to pay it forward.
 I'm giving away one of my candy corn dishcloths!
  Just leave a comment and you will be entered to win!  I'll pick a winner next Tuesday, and post it on Wednesday!

PS.  The wooden bowl was a $2.00 find at a garage sale in Brown County!

  1. Wow I wish you lived closer you can help me with this whole knitting thing I seem to be enjoying it more than I thought. I finally figured out how to cast off myself OK you helped thank you and then I started a scarf for My Hero even if it is ugly he said he would wear it:) I cast on by myself. Why am I telling you all this you ask well I spend a good hour in a store looking for cotton to make washcloths and I could only find little balls so I am still searching.
    Love your candy corn ones they are very cool. If you lived next door you could finish anything I start like you did for your friend just a thought:) Hug B
