There hasn't been a whole lot of knitting going on around here since the weather has started to warm up. Not that it's too hot to knit in the evening it's just the incentive that has gone.
So I have pulled out my remnants of cotton and started some dish cloths. You start with four stitches and increase at the beginning of each row until you have 77 stitches and then decrease at the beginning of each row until four are left and then cast off. The increase is knit one yarn forward and knit to end. Decrease is knot 2 together, yarn over ,knit 2 together and knit to end of row. This gives a lovely border to the cloth. Sorry I don't know where I got the pattern from, but it was a blogger friend so thank you whoever it was.
It's ages since I've linked up with Ginny for a yarn along, but inspiration from Lori and her post about Alaska and here I am to share this lovely book...
It is based around a Russian folk story about an old couple who were never able to have children and build a little girl from snow. The story is set in pioneering Alaska and just as I finished reading it I saw Lori's post about her visit to Alaska. It certainly brought the book alive for me.
Happy yarning to you all, especially those of you in the north as you come into your cooler weather.
