Yarn Along – Grandmother’s Favorite

yarnalong_gsheller_gray

On Wednesday’s knitters go to Ginny’s to share all the wonderful projects being worked on, finished, frogged, cried over, and learned from. They also tell what they are reading and a little of the storyline or provoking thoughts. I think it is great. So many books, knitting ideas and hints on how to make knitting more enjoyable.

I don’t have much exciting knitting this week,
but I wanted to link up with Ginny and her friends.

I have a large lace shawl and 2 afghans on the needles,
but I seem to need to see something done.
So I have been knitting Grandmother’s Favorite dishcloths.

These are this Grannie’s favorite, too.
I knit with a size 4.
I love using the signature points to make
that K2tog with the unyielding cotton.
Thanks to the Farmer’s gift a few Christmases ago.

The white one has a swan knitted in, for my Mom,
she and dad used to have swans living on their section of Nelder Heights creek

I saw this yarn in Joann’s and knew it had to me another blanket
for a friend due late fall.

  1. i enjoyed looking at the patterns you linked to and in particular the Latvian knitting. How wonderful to see the old skills being passed down. Your shawl and dishclothes are lovely. 🙂
