January 2018

Categories: The Garden 2018 and What's Been Happening?.

January has been a mixture of weather so far … mild, rain, ice rain, snow, frigid temperatures, a thaw and there is still half a month to go. We arrived home from British Columbia on a mild day, which got even milder the next day with temperatures of 11 Celsius.  There was snow everywhere and we got the paths dug out around the garden to the various bird feeders.  But on Thursday night and Friday morning the temperatures rose more and just about all of the snow melted away.  It was a really foggy day and as the day went

It’s Not Here Yet!

Categories: The Garden 2017.

It’s Not Here Yet! The warm weather!  But then again it usually isn’t at this time of the year, we just want it to be! It has been a mixed weather week with chilly temperatures, pouring rain, wind, clouds and some sun. On rainy days I’ve been doing some crochet, trying out a couple of new patterns for dishcloths.  One is called Round & Ridgy and the other is Granny Round Ripple. I like patterns that I call “no brainer” ones that I can work on while watching tv. The granny one is really nice but it needs a bit

Crochet Projects on the Go

Categories: Books, Crochet, and Patterns.

Winter brings cold and stormy weather and not as much outside time, but it does mean more time for the hooks and needles to come out. It is hard to have just one project on the go, so here are a couple of yarn projects on the go this week. One will be another ‘purse’onality bag for my collection.  This is my favourite bag pattern and so easy to work on.  It doesn’t take much time to complete one of the squares needed to make the bag. To go with my new winter coat, this one is all black. This pattern is

Dishcloth Britches

Categories: Knitting.

I recently have been knitting dishcloths.  The simple pattern is one that I use whenever I don’t have other projects on the go. I like to keep a stack of dishcloths for my use and to give as little gifts. This year I decided to make some up as dishcloth britches!  This is a favourite seller at church bazaars and craft sales.  You just need 2 square knitted dishcloths and some thin ribbon or yarn for fastening them together. This is the pattern I use for knitted dishcloths.  If you want a bigger cloth just add more than 40 stitches.  The

It’s Dishy to be Round

Categories: Crochet.

It is always good to keep a stock of dishcloths on hand, either knitted or crocheted.   They make great little gifts or stocking stuffers added to hand soap, hand cream, or kitchen gadgets.  I have a bag of cotton yarn and the patterns ready to go.  I love these “no brainer” types of patterns for when I’m watching tv or sitting on the deck on a sunny day. For my version of a round dish cloth pattern you will need a 5 mm crochet hook and approx. 50 grams of cotton yarn. Round 1 – Ch 6, join with

Dishcloths

Categories: Crochet and Knitting.

It is always good to keep a stock of dishcloths on hand, either knitted or crocheted.   They make great little gifts or stocking stuffers added to hand soap, hand cream, or kitchen gadgets. The pattern for these is what I call a ‘no brainer’ pattern.  These were made using up all the odds and ends of cotton yarn I had on hand. Cast on 4 stitches. K2, yo, k to end of row. Repeat this row till you have 40 stitches on the needle. Then start the decrease, k1, k2tog, yo, k2tog, knit to end. Continue till there are
