Butterfly Cotton Cloth

butterfly washclothThis is my first attempt at making designs using knitting stitches. I'll use this cotton cloth next month when we focus on 100% cotton washcloths. Now I have one suitable for a male (the camo one, and this butterfly one for a female. This was measures about 8 x 9 inches. Just need to tuck in my final end and lay this aside with the other one.

Since this month is scarf month, I should be making a scarf; but needed something small and easy to tote with my current work schedule.

I announced the other day the extension of our comment contest and hope everyone got a chance to read that. Please help spread the word. Contest will end June 15th. We lost several days due to blogger being out and I want to give as many people as possible the opportunity to get involved.

  1. I love it. That is really pretty an looks so soft. May I ask how long it too to make?

  2. Very pretty, Sandy. Oooh, next month is washcloths? I can probably help with that one.

  3. Thanks Rachele, if you sat down and just did it, probably a couple of hours. Me...several days, cause it was a few rows here, a few rows there. I can't do the counting thing when other things are going on, so did it in small amounts of time.

    Great Marie Anne, appreciate it.

  4. VERY nice! Just for a grin - the other night I was knitting on a cloth that also required counting while @ my daughters tumbling class. I did ok until they started their jumps when the instructor started them all of together with a "5, 6, 7, 8..." I went to wait in the car.

  5. psmflowerlady, thanks for posting that...I sometimes think I need better concentration; but am glad to know I'm not alone.

  6. The butterfly washcloth is lovely! I'm working on some crocheted cloths for you in a denim color. Michaels had a sale on 2.5 oz Sugar 'n Cream cotton a couple of weeks ago for $1.00 each. I love a bargain!

  7. Sorry I missed that sale Harvest Hill, that's a good price. Thanks for your efforts.

  8. Congratulations on your first design. It is so pretty and will be very much appreciated.

  9. Your butterfly wash cloth is very pretty. Like the cameo one too!

  10. Such a lovely piece to give. Little things like that can mean so much. I'm sure some needy lady is going to treasure that art.

  11. Thanks Bunnie, Karen, and Lily, appreciate your visits and comments.

  12. I love the butterfly!! very pretty!!!

  13. The butterfly is a symbol of hope and renewal. Maybe your butterfly will give that to someone who needs it right now. Besides, it's just plain PRETTY -- and way beyond my skill level. Hugs -- Sunny Sandie in FL

  14. That's a beautiful wash cloth! Did you write down the pattern as you made it? I'd love to make one! (Or Many!)

  15. Anna, thanks, but it's not my pattern...it's the first I've attempted to knit something with a pattern.

  16. What an awesome job you did, Sandy! I have never done that kind of thing before, maybe after seeing yours, I will get brave enough to try one!

  17. Wow this turned out great. I also have the problem of staying with the pattern so I've started marking my rows when I am done. This helps me or I would never finish one that looked like it should!

  18. That's a wonderful butterfly pattern! You did an excellent job.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
