First Washclothes & knitting in public


Hi all! This is my first post. I came across the Mason Dixon book at my local library a couple of weeks ago and was immediately hooked. I was thrilled to find a KAL.

My first project was a "practice" washclothe, which I wont even show you. Now I've finished two washclothes and a I'm making a matching towel using the baby burb clothe pattern. I'm wishing I'd made the towel slightly wider, but not enough to start over. :) They are for my sister who it getting married in September.

I purchased Euroflax Linen for the handtowel pattern last week and I can't wait to get started. It's hard to find time to knit so I'm not getting projects finished as fast as I would like. I think I want to make everything in the book!

Anyway I wanted to say hi and introduce myself, but I'm rattling on. I love seeing what everyone else is doing and the tweaks you make to the patterns to fit your preferences!

Me knitting a dishclothe in public, the day after Knit in Public Day at the Denver Musem of Nature and Science.

Soon to be disclothes, baby bibs, and burb rags.

Happy Knitting!

Love that knit-in-public picture!!!
Did anyone stop and talk to you?
Or did they just "lurk" ?

Have you started on the Euroflax linen yet?
I did, found the yarn quite easy to work with, but the stitches too loose, will frog it and start again with smaller needles.
 
A couple people asked me what I was knitting, made me wish I had something more fun to answer than a dishclothe. I think unless you're a Mason Dixon knitter it just doesn't seem that exciting, so I got a lot of "oh"s. Lots of lurkers too! Not sure they knew what to make of me.

I'm hoping to start the euroflax linne this week!

Be sure to let us know how your towel turns out!
 
I love the matching washclothes and towel! I think I will blatantly steal that idea for a present for my mom!
