I am a woman, wife and mama. Crocheting and knitting keep me sane in this crazy world. All seems good when my fingers are throwing the yarn around a hook or a needle.

The pic at the top of this blog is my FO of Stephanie Haberman’s Leftover Towel pattern in Lily Sugar’n Cream country side ombre.

    Hi – love you dish cloths and am trying to make the Playful Plaid, but having a problem between Rows 7 & 8 when I’m trying to go from the contrasting color to the main color. It seems the thread with the main color that I need to use on Row 8 is at the other end of the needle. Someone told me to carry the color up, but when would I do that or how do I do it without using it to knit? I’m probably the only one who has ever had a problem with this! Hope you can help.

    I am glad that you asked this question because I am sure there are others having the same problem. First, I would watch the video link I posted for carrying the color up the side. The working yarn should be knit back and forth while the non-working yarn stays put at one end. Starting with Row 7 you should “carry the MC up the side” while knitting with the CC. Rows 7-12 should be knit with the CC. Hope this helps! 😀

    hi – just wanted to let you know that I used one of your patterns to make into a baby blanket–the one you call a Christmas Dishcloth.
    You can see the baby blanket at the knitting forum:
    Thanks for your inspiration!

  4. hi, I’m tring to print your addictive blanket pattern, it comes out all squished over to the side of the page with very tiny print. Is there a different way to print it, maybe you have a pdf? thank you!
