Hooker Bubble Magnets

Boy have I been having fun.  I've been busy making "Hooker" related Bubble Magnets and some other misc magnets.   I will be all prepared for my next craft show (whenever that might be :)).  These were really fun to make; I've done about 50 so far.  Everything I look at now....that would make a cute magnet.  I might have to make some bubble pins also......

Grandma's Favorite Dishcloth

I've kinda been on a dishcloth kick....since my good friend Patty introduced me to "Grandma's Favorite Dishcloth" pattern. 
Materials:  Sugar and Cream Yarn and Size 6 or 7 needles (US)
Cast on 4 stitches
Row 1:  Knit 4
Row 2:  Knit 2, yarn over, knit across the row.  Repeat Row 2 until you have 44 stitches on the needle.
Row 3:  Knit 1, Knit 2 together, yarn over, knit 2 together, knit to end of the row.
Repeat Row 3 until you have 4 stitches on the needle.
You can now either bind off or do a round of single corchet and make a little loop of chain stitches in one corner so you can hang the cloth to dry when you are finished using it. 

Who would have ever thought....I would be knitting dishclothes....!

Finished in no time at all!

This cute little pattern is by "With they needle and Thread", http://withthyneedleandthread.blogspot.com/.  I punched it in two evenings and discovered it wasn't too hard to finish (used a little black marker to hide a few flaws).  This picture really doesn't do it justice.....it is very, very cute!  These might have to be some Christmas presents.  Linda

Another Finish!

For once I'm ahead of the holiday! I finished this hooked piece weeks ahead of Easter, amazing! I'm ready to put it out as I am very tired of winter!  I'm running out of hooked projects to work on....I need our Spring Hook In to get here so I can do some shopping.  I'm buying time by finishing some punch needle projects, knitting, stitching...... Have a great week!  Linda
