Pointier Points & Other Weighty Matters

WashclothCraze

I mean, who really cares about whether the points on a knitted washcloth are pointier than previously knitted? I certainly don’t care one way or the other…but therein lies the fun of it all!

NailBitingEndHitchhiker

So, I finally finished my Hitchhiker Shawl, and oh what a nail-biting finish that was! Only about 2 1/2 inches of yarn left on the bind off! Just barely enough to weave in. But that’s all I needed! 🙂

At the same time, I had been merrily knitting washcloths  my latest obsession, and the thought occurred to me that I could, quite possibly, make the points on my washcloths just as pointy as the points on the Hitchhiker.

Eureka! It worked! Using the clever little Kfb, turn, purl one, knit one, pass the purled stitch over, worked like a charm to add a bit of pointless pointiness  to the Almost Lost Washcloth. ‘Tis fun, no?

SocksFinish&Start

Other oddments I’ve enjoyed immensely of late are finishing socks…

SoccerfieldSocks

…turning cart heels at soccer games…

ToeExcitement

…the thrill of toe knitting (not to be confused with knitting with your toes)…

Tea&Shawl

…drinking tea and eating a cupcake in a new way whilst finishing the knitting of a shawl design (typing up pattern for offering on Etsy soon!)…

CircleVestBegins

…starting a crocheted circular vest…

CircleVestFini

…and finishing it in a few days time…

WOPSoapBag

…and working on a sweet little project I’ll tell you more about soon!

Pointless Pointiness and all manner of frivolity is very sustaining and enriching to one’s life!

I hope you have a bit of frivolity in your day today!

    Love all your knitted things! Where did you find the pattern for the vest! It’s awesome!! Thanks for posting all! I’m a knitter and a painter too.

      Hi Nancy! Alas, the crocheted circle vest is my own creation. I did not follow a pattern, but used so many different and varied stitches on each row that I don’t think I will type up a pattern for it at this point. Maybe in future?? 🙂 anyway…thank you for visiting and for commenting! It always makes my day! -Jennifer

    Such pretty things and boy, you have been busy! Pointier dishcloths sound fun. I’ve just finished 3 new cloths (square ones) for my daughter. They are small and satisfying projects like socks but even faster!

    Just want you to know that I took the washcloth pattern and yarn/needles with me on a sad trip to PA this past weekend (my aunt passed away). I wasn’t driving, thankfully, but I needed a small project to keep busy on the road, and decided to do the washcloth. (Also, I’ve never done short rows, so I thought it would be good practice.) They turned out fabulous, and so quick I had to stop off at Walmart to get more yarn! I also have an order for some from my sister in law, and am considering doing some for family Christmas bundles. Thanks for sharing it!

      Pat, I am delighted to hear that you have enjoyed knitting this washcloth and that it has been a companion to you during a sad time. I am sorry to hear of your aunt’s passing. I hope that knitting will continue to bring you solace. And thank you for visiting my blog! Happy Knitting! -Jennifer
