There once was a knitter…

There once was a knitter named Heather
Who knitted in all sorts of weather
She had lots of fun
And got everything done
But that cable scarf never came together

That was the kniterick Heather and I wrote Monday afternoon for her submission to the contest we held for the last meeting of our after school knitting class. Julie has more as well as some of the outstanding games we played. Prizes? Left over yarn of course, these kids have got to work on their stash! 

Monday I had one of those days. I felt like nothing I did was quite good enough. I didn't think I taught particularly well, I fought with my blog, and I yelled at my child. Luckily things are feeling brighter and life goes on.

WarshragSunday when I finished the Button Hole Bags I grabbed some left over cotton and figured I would make the Mason Dixon Warshrag. I didn't have the right length size 8 circular so I went with double points. What fun (not the double points, that was a pain. The warshrag was fun). It was a quick knit and I learned how to make bobbles! The only touble I had was on the purl rounds I kept getting the yarn wound around funny as I moved from one needle to the next. Any hints on this or am I just incapable? It clearly needs some blocking so I'll do that tonight to give to Jill tomorrow to celebrate her new sublet. 

bobbleThis is my very first bobble. And my second. Bobbles for all from now on!!


  1. Oh, yes, bobbles for all. Bobbles make everything so much better! Like warshrags, and scarves, and toilet paper covers… Bobble on!
