knitted dish cloths

After a long break, I finally picked up my knitting needles again. I've been so immersed in sewing, that I forgot how much I loved to knit. I don't do anything fancy..just things like hats and dishcloths. They are useful and easy to make. Here are my latest:

What motivated me to dig out my needles again, was the Creativity Challenge #2 that Shelly of Prairie Moon Quilts is doing this year. For this past week, it was to:

Make your initial out of something.

At first, I was going to do it in needlework, but figured that would take too long. So then thought about knitting and a search of the web, turned up THIS wonderful page of free knitted monogram dishcloths. I'm sure I'll make more in the future for my family.

And it's not too late, if you want to jump in on the fun of this challenge. You can read all about it HERE on Shelly's blog. The supplies she recommended to have on-hand, I found that I had them already!

 The only thing I didn't have, was an adult coloring book. I was going to just use my daughters', but then found some beautiful one's in our local craft store.
Just look at this page!
I'll just have to do this one and frame and hang it in my sewing room!

So if you're up for a different kind of challenge this year, to spark your creativity, hop on over to Shelly's blog! I'm sure this will be a lot of fun!

Thanks for dropping by and happy stitching, drawing, quilting, painting...whatever makes your heart sing!


  1. I love those! I may have to try one -- I love to knit.

  2. Sweet dish clothes! I have some a friend knitted for me and love them. Hubby gave me the sweetest coloring book for Christmas with a wonderful case of coloring pencils, chalk pencils, oil pencils...everything I need to spur my creativity. I've had hours of fun, it's so relaxing.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. It's always appreciated! :)
