Knitting Some Sunshine




Snowed in another day! 

Is it possible to knit some sunshine? I am giving it my best shot. 

Looking for my next knitting project but even if I find it, it will have to wait. No trips to town today,  to pick up the needed yarn. 

But, I have been knitting dishcloths. I have a cotton yarn stash and I have been picking out the brightest colors I can find. Hoping those bright colors will bring some warmth and some thoughts of Spring. 

This is one of the first Knitting projects I learned. They are pretty simple.

How is the weather in your area?

  1. Oh I love the bright colours and the patterns if you figure out how to knit sunshine let me know:) It is very sunny here but because of last nights dump of snow and the high winds I cannot see out the back window. Doing the chores was frightful and I am glad I knitted a hat:) Keep knitting if you lived closer I have lots:) Hug b

  2. It's stinkin' cold here. I'm finished up a crocheted (Bavarian) baby blanket. When I finish that, it's diving into my closet for those pesky unfinished projects....ha ha ha!

  4. Knitting sunshine is such a happy sounding phrase. Maybe you could knit a little over here! :-) It rained cats and dogs today.

  5. I need to knit some more dish cloths, too. Ours are getting rather worn. I keep a stock of yarn on hand just for that purpose, but I don't think I have any sunshine yarn. I keep a stock of all kinds of yarn I find on sale. Can't have too much yarn!

  11. Do you have any tips or tricks for keeping them bright? My crocheted ones seem to fade. I love knit work, but I just can't seem to get the knack.

    If you have any more crafty stuff you want to share, I run a Blog Hop on Fridays. You can enter today's hop up until next Thursday at noon.

  13. I have never learned to knit but I always admire those who do. My daughter wants to learn how to knit and talks about it all the time so I am going to send her your tutorial and pattern. What a great first project. These are beautiful colors and I need some color in my world right now too - it is 9 degrees out and surrounded by snow. Thanks for sharing on the Four Seasons Blog Hop as always we love your posts~
