I started my week off finishing off the crochet pattern for the Dishcloth Mania Ravelry Group, week 13. I got up early last Sunday while the family slept in - it took me about an hour and a half to do the pattern, which modifications. Here is a link to the pattern if you want it - but I'll warn you, I had to make some modifications to the pattern. The counts for the rows are off. I also added an edging. My edging caused the cloth to ruffle a little bit, but I'm ok with that. I actually think it turned out pretty good.

In other good news, I decided on a pattern for my table runner. I am making the Lacet Table Runner which was originally published in 1935. I chose the pattern because of its simplicity. I kinda wish I had chose something a little more intricate, but I'm not sure - I waver back and forth between it being a good decision and it being a cop out.

I have made pretty decent headway on the table runner, which I shared with you earlier in the week. I like the pattern so it isn't dreadful to work on - I'm just having a problem with drifting off thinking about how long it'll be before I'm finished. I shouldn't because that seems to make the work more tedious. I honestly have no idea when I'll be done with it but I know I'll love it when I'm finished.

On top of that, I do think I'll be starting the sweater vest on the list later this week.

Your YOP posts always make me feel so inspired!

Thanks! I feel honored to hear that from you :) I look at it and think, why does the total project percent keep going up and not the total projects on the list *laughs* I definitely saved the big stuff for the project list and am doing a lot of the tiny stuff instead... oops!

I love your dishcloth, the ruffled edge finishes it of perfectly.  I love the early morning determination to get it done.  That's so me as well.

Your table runner is not a cop out--it is beautiful as well as your discloth! Knitting when the house is quiet is so cathartic.

Thanks for the pattern link for the dishcloth: i might give it a try!

Cris said...

Its a cute cloth just when you start the spiral, you may need to adjust some of the counts from the pattern. I've had a good time in the dishcloth group - if you like cloths, they post a knit and crochet pattern every week. Good group to be in :)

Oh that quiet time is nice - I pop on some tunes and turn the volume down low and just relax back and get "into the zone" of relaxation :)

Cris said...

I didn't know I enjoyed that early morning time until recently - it's just SO quiet and nice.

You are doing better than me.  I'm still stuck on my latest shawl and my top.  Of course I have to say that I didn't get much done this weekend. I really need to make some progress this week.  I'm ready to move on to new projects!

You are ambitious!  I love your stats.  :)

i love seeing your stats - I'm not at all stats minded so I'm a little fascinated that other people think/work this way :) 

Hope you have a great week and will look out for that vest! x
