Great Garterlac mooshie!!!

I have given up writing my own pattern for now.  I am going to do the oak leaf dishcloth for my swap partner.  I was thinking about the garterlac for her, but seeing as I have never done anything like that before, I 'm not sure if I'll have the patience for it this weekend.  I would like to send to her tomorrow if possible (no later than the 22nd though).  This is the last thing I have to do.

I LOVE the garterlac. I may need to put that on my list. Is it terribly difficult?

thanks for the comments! Smiley

garterlac is actually very easy! you pick up and knit stitches along the previous row, and continue to knit as directed.  I was intimidated at first too, but once I picked up the stitches the first time I was wondering what I'd been afraid of.  it's fun to do!  just don't try to do it while talking on the phone (ask me how I kow this  Wink ).  with ther garterlac not really having a "right" or "wrong" side it can be confusing as to which direction you're going if you're not paying attention.  makes me think that entrelac would be easier to keep track of? 

can't wait to see more garterlac cloths!

Will try! I've never picked up stitches, so it will be a learning experience, but I shall be a "fearless knitter" this year.  Cheesy

I tried the garterlac before I attempted entrelac, and I firmly believe that having the garterlac knowledge made learning entrelac much easier. Entrelac is the same as garterlac, except that you purl on the "wrong side."

A little tip for picking up stitches...use a crochet hook. I use a size 0 crochet hook & it's awesome!

Have old jeans, pillowcases, or t-shirts? I'll take them! I'm also always looking for the sleeves to women's long sleeved shirts!

oh, I guess I didn't realize that these were all new and different from the ones in last years KAL.  I only got like 3 different patterns done last year, and I printed off about a dozen patterns that I didn't get to.  can I still play with last years patterns? or do I have to switch to the new ones?

Thanks for the question.  I answered it on my first post and added a TON of new patterns! I've not even scratched the surface of pattern links Smiley

Basically, you can knit any pattens you like, even if they're in a book you bought or its your own.  I'm just providing the links for those who aren't real internet savvy and can't find them on their own.  knittingpatterncentral.com has nothing on me *snicker*

You got that right, WCX!  You rock the dishcloth lists!!!   Grin 

BTW, I started to make the Grrr cloth.  Sheesh!  The loops drove me crazy.  I frogged it and if I don't find another way to make the loops, it may never get done.

There's the pinwheels I've made so far! I was thinking of coming up with my own name for them, since I haven't seen anybody else make them.  *shrug*  These are highly addicting to make, as you can see.  I've been on a mission to make one from every color of yarn I have.  I have a white one that's been serving as a cozy for my Waterpik.  I haven't tried it on dishes or in the shower yet.  There's prolly countless ways to tweak that pattern to make it your own.



A somewhat close-up.  It somehow came unraveled in my purse O.o But check out the cool swirl pattern.

BTW, I started to make the Grrr cloth.  Sheesh!  The loops drove me crazy.  I frogged it and if I don't find another way to make the loops, it may never get done.

I had a bit of trouble doing that too.  I looked up a video on how to do the loops on knittinghelp.com but instead of using my thumb (is that what she does? can't remember) I used my index or middle finger... can't remember which....

Great circular cloths!  Very lovely in all the different colors.  For the new cloth makers in our group...a good blocking will make them all lie flat. 

I'm not giving up on Grrr!  I'm just going to find another way to make the loops.  I'll check out the knittinghelp.com.

Thanks WCX!

Hi everyone! Can I still join y'all? I was bitten by the dishcloth bug last fall and made lots as gifts for people. However, I still don't know how to post pictures even though I've been on here for awhile. Can someone help me?
Okay, back to page one to check out the patterns!
