2 WIPs and a Scrappy FO.

I have been having a wonderful time working on the Amiga. The pattern is very clear, including the instructions on how to join the motifs in the 6th round (no sewing together, yay!). I frequently get confused when trying to join motifs in some patterns, so I was glad that the instructions were so clear and easy. Now I need to pick up stitches to knit the ribbed neck.
I have done a little work on the Sasquatch Socks. They are huge and I am a little worried that they may actually be a little too big. I think I will have the apartment manager take home the first one for her husband to try on before I start the second sock. I like to make dishcloths to have on hand for last minute gifts, plus they make a great way to practice a new technique, but what to do with the little leftovers? I just make dishcloths for me. I don't care what they look like as long as they will get the job done, so I use multiple colors even if they don't "go" together. The one below is just garter stitch and uses 3 leftover balls of different colors. It was a mindless project while watching a television show that I was engrossed in, so I didn't have to look at what I was knitting.So, what do you do with your leftover kitchen cotton?


  1. I make these with my left over cotton:

    (Yes, shameless self promotion!) :-p

    Awesome FOs!!

  2. Birdwell, thank you for posting that! I love the idea and will be adding it to my queue.

  3. I make tightly crocheted scrumbly bits for my godson to chew on. he LOVES them.
    They were especially appreciated when I wet them and cooled them in the fridge, while he was teething.

  4. The Amiga is looking stunning. I love the variegated yarn you chose.

  5. Thanks for sharing the information...I like it very much.
