On My Needles

I finished the Nordic Dishcloth and loved the overall pattern. Knitting cables is fun!

It’s been a week of gift giving.

The dishcloths that I have made in these last weeks were given to my children’s Maestras (teachers) of a local Agile Learning Centre – Crecer Verde.

Our children are home schooled but they attended Crecer Verde, one day each week in a beautiful outdoor space. The classes were all in Spanish, it was fabulous for my children to test their understanding. Topics that they covered were history, movement, art, drawing and some elements of film making.

The community that has been created by the families at Crecer Verde is beautiful and we felt so welcomed.

This coming week I am using up my left over yarn and will search for a new pattern or maybe repeat some I’ve already done.

Do You Love Bare Yarns?

Have you ever wondered what you could create when attempting your own yarn dyeing?

KnitPicks have a lovely selection of different weights and blends.

Or if you just love the look of bare yarn, there will be something for you too.
