Lately I have been working on stocking stuffers and house warming gifts! Here are some great samples of what has been going on.
My new favourite dishtowel has the seed stitch border around it, in small or medium.
To make a medium one:
Use cotton yarn of choice- worsted weight
6mm needles (also need a 5mm crochet hook for the loop)
For five rows seed stitch
(Every row K1, P1)
Row six: K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, K40 stitches, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1
Continue all rows as row 6 until there is about 1.5 inches left to make a perfect square
Five rows of seed stitch
COff- leave last stitch to chain 50 stitches (if a loop is needed- 50 or more chain if desired), double stitch crochet the loop
Weave in all ends
The small one casts on 35 instead of 50 and has 25 stitches in the middle of row 6

Finding time to knit has been somewhat difficult, in fact my beautiful knits collection has lagged longer than expected. However, I finally finished a pair of leg warmers.
Knitted on size 5 dpns
CO 50 stitches- divide evenly by 3 needles
K1P1 for 3 inches
K each round 13 inches
K1P1 3 inches
Happy Knitting :)
