Day Three and On a Roll

If you need a model, get Goth Princess occupied killing things on the TV screen and you can drape all sorts of stuff over her. Cats included. This is the loopy scarf I made out of 5 skeins of yarn my sister sent. I did 5 rows of loop stitch and 5 rows of garter stitch, using up each strand. Luckily the colors of the yarns did blend in together.

The 4 legged model is Carroll (we thought it was a girl when it was little and named it Carol, turned out to be male).

This is a closeup of the "Loops and Garters" as I call it. It was a mindless project during the holidays. What I liked about it is that I made it a little wider than I should have and it folds up on itself. Goth Daughter likes it. Trumpet Princess thinks it's weird.

Also on the holiday working on is this spiral dishcloth. I got tired of the plain square one, even though I gave them away to happy recipients right and left. Easy pattern. I have done 1 alternating colors on each of the "wedges" of the spiral. Good way to use up some of that left-over cotton yarn.

I enjoy this washcloth a lot. Easy, easy once you get the pattern down.

And this is the bottle holder I am working on getting the "pattern" down for. It is crocheted and was shown to me by someone who made up her pattern, every time she crocheted it. Anyway, I am trying to get a little more "formal", but have tons of color combinations, adding beads, etc. that I want to try.
