Reversible Triangles Dish/Face Cloth

As you can see I have been busy, I finished a dish/face cloth last night it is called Reversible Triangles a interesting one to do only 6 rows to the pattern so a fairly easy one which I needed to do as the evening before we had visitors who stayed overnight so while I was chatting I needed something that I didn't have worry too much about.

I may start another pair of socks but using some yarn I haven't tried yet it feels so soft & I am hoping it knits as well as it feels, these will be for me.

I hope to get a block done as I need to get at least one block done for a swap I do have I think about 6 to do so all the blocks are done but one will keep me on track for now.

Plain Coloured Back Scrubber

Here is another back scrubber but done in a Plain colour it a Mint Green colour & it looks nice just in a plain colour as it does in Variegate yarns

Knitted Back Scrubber

Wishing you all the very best for the Season, well I have been knitting Back Scrubbers or as some call it a Loafer I did one which I gave as part of a Christmas present to my DSIL where we was for Christmas dinner, I done another one which you can see, the pattern is from http://knittingbunny.blogspot.com/2008/10/scrubber.html I quite like knitting these as it mindless knitting while watching TV so it handy.

I am not sure what my next project will be it will be knitting as I know i won't do any quilting until at least the New Year, I have ordered some wadding ready for projects next year I ordered some Insul Bright which is a Heat Resistant one plus I ordered some Soft & Bright & Warm & Natural I have not used either of these two so it be nice to try, I have used the Insul Bright before & as i want to do some Pot Holders (Hot Pads) plus some Placemats I know I will need some, I got a book called 101 Fun-To-Quilt Pot Holders so will have plenty of ideas from the book to do them.

Well if I don't post again before the New Year I would like to take this time to wish all of you & your families a Very Healthy Happy New Year

Aiden's & Rebecca's Socks

Well I have finished 2 of the 3 pairs of socks I have to do for 3 of my DGC these are my daughter's 3 children, I have done Aiden who will be 10 in January the same as DH's socks as I had enough yarn over from them to do the same & what boy don't like camoflauge, Rebecca's socks are bright as that is what she likes she is a bubble 12 year old girl, while the last pair I have to do which will be for Kayleigh who is 14 are more subdue dark colours as that is more her type of colours.

I have decided that once the holidays are over that I really need to get down to doing more I have a fabric & a yarn stash so come next year some of it will be turned in to a gift stash so I may be ready for next Christmas even if I wasn't for this one plus with the way things are going financially all over the world it may be a wise thing to do plus I don't know about any of you reading this but i would rather have something that cost a little but was hand-made than something that cost a lot that was shop bought.
