Halloween

Though it’s not really common to celebrate Halloween here, I like the idea of adding a holiday between summer and Sinterklaas (December 5th).
So, here I am, baking spooky cookies and carving (tiny) pumpkins.
Happy Halloween!

October dishcloth

This is a really intriguing one. Seen from above, it’s just stripes, but when you look closer, it’s… um… an icecream?

Edited to add: The last picture should be the other way around: it’s a candy corn! I never heard about that (I’m from the Netherlands), but there you go.  And yes, I mixed up the colors too, but that’s not the fault of the pattern (I couldn’t find any black cotton).

Another one

I had so much fun with the last one that I didn’t want to wait for the next dishcloth. So I made one from the archives. This is the mid-September pattern.
It’s also the first lace I ever knit.

Dishcloth

In one of the knitting blogs I’m reading I found a link to a dishcloth knitalong. I thought it would be fun to join in.  To be honest, I don’t really have a clue what to use these for (we use brushes or sponges for dishes here), but it’s a fun way to keep knitting and to learn how to read patterns in English.

I love this one. The yarn is really scratchy, but I like how that cat appeared by just alternating between knits and purls.
