Shut your mouth and say it ain't so!!! Can you believe this! I know it is not and exact match to a ball band washcloth but it is close enough. I have got to get me a cool corder. Now I have the manual one but I want the crank one so I can spit out some icord actually I can make icord on the machine as well. Go Bond!!
Do you the implications this has. There are too many to count. I might be able to knit weave the hounds tooth with this method. I am out done. Stick me with a fork!!!!
All I need now is a ttd creations tag. The inspiration piece is a mink pom pom key fob. So I thought hey I could do that with fun fur. So here is my knock off version. it not as round and sheds like the dickens but it is mine. Next time i am going to use wool and funfur then felt it. That way I should have a soild ball with little to no shedding.

I had plans to create a SS freak'em girl but I did not have time. The scarf took longer than I thought. So I will do it tonight. I took the gauge and eveything I like that knit check.
I am using the purple yarn from a poncho I took down and I will cast on 42 sts and knit 99 rows.
I will at least have the piece tomorrow. I don't know what fabric but I am using those bamboo handles if the bag is big enough.

So I got the yarn yesterday. Here is my sad problem I only have one set of needles which can be easily solved I know. I only have one more washcloth to go for my xmas gift but I want to start my bag.
Ok here is what I was thinking. A houndstooth tote/clutch. I was going to do a clutch on the machine but just thinking about pulling out those neeldes I was like no. I had a pattern for handknit houndstooth that sounds really simple so I said why not.

ok here is my first attemp at a pedicure sock. You can get the actual pattern at Knitty.com I got the idea from Raena. I made this on Monday. Off bat it is too big. I use red heart soft. That is a great yarn. And I use GIna Ahren's Ankle Sock For the Whole Family patern as usual! I put too many rows of ribbing at the bottom. It calls for 32 rows for the foot and I did 16 and ribbed the last sixteen rows. Like I said too many. Next time I will do only 5-6 rows. So this means I need to do the medium for me and the small for everyone else no larges.
I had not machine knitted in a while so it felt good to get a sock off the machine in an hour and a half. I was tired too but i wanted to see that sock. I was going to do it on Sun but could find the patern to save my tail. You know I found it I want to say yesterday or this morning. Still did me no good. so my next attempt will be with the same yarn and just one size smaller.
On the Mason Dixon KAL blog someone posted pic of the ballband gifts she was giving. I decided to follow suit with miniballbands. i have two complete I am working on the third. I have six planned out hopfully I don't run out of yarn. I found a big ball of ecru so I am good there. Thses are for Ms. Mary's Kitchen she changed her whole house form red to sage grenn so fast it looked easy! I love my blue so I am good I just try and follow her lead but with blue. I hope she likes them. I made her some little britches but she never used them she hung them up like decoration. I was thinking abou tmakeing her some of those but I am too far into the ball bands. I thought about making myself some I am probably going to use them as decoration as well.
I got the neatest puffy from Toni,markers, a counting bracelet,extra
beads a great holiday cake recipe and an envelop clutch with a
crocheted flower Everything co-ordinated in black and white -So shiek.
Thanks so much.
Hers was the one I decided to carry the color all the way through. I should continue. That mean I need to get some more beads. With Joye's set I had a value pack of beads.
Point being I am glad she enjoyed her puffy.

Oh yeah I did it! I kept at the pattern all day and I made my earrings! Oh yeah I did it! Will post a pattern later. And this is my first hand knit pattern. Raena and I are talking about submitting a purse pattern to knitted wisdom.com and I got two ideas a houndstooth clutch or a ballband clutch. Houndstooth I am going to do on the machine fairisle and of course the ball band by hand.
