Yarn Along

I always enjoy the weekly Yarn Along, hosted by Ginny of Small Things, but I never seem to get my act together in time to put one up. Today I finally remembered!

Not that my knitting is that exciting, more on the practical side. However, I’ve been dragging it around to the beach, swim lessons, the kiddie pool, and baseball practice. That means it needs to be able to take a little sand and chlorine, and yes dirt. And despite their practical nature, I’m really in love with this stack of dishcloths I’ve piled up the last few weeks.

The book, if you can see it on my Nook, is The Sign of Four, but Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I’ve always been a Masterpiece Mystery fan, and the latest Sherlock Holmes series has been fabulous. So I decided to dive in and read the actual stories and downloaded the entire works of Conan Doyle, all 1755 pages of them! I’m not sure I’ll read them all at once, I have a few other books in mind as well. But they make an very entertaining summer read!

  1. Dishcloths are definitely the perfect beach pattern. The color combinations are really summery, too.

  2. I love the colours of your dishcloths. A perfect and speedy project 🙂 I’ve not read much Conan Doyle but I’m familiar with the stories.

  3. I am a big Sherlock Holmes fan so I definitely approve! And I often make dish cloth patterns using chenille yarn as graduation gifts. Use one to wrap up a bar of unique soap and tuck a bit of cash into the card and you are good to go!

    I downloaded them all as well! I am saving them for when the kids go back to school!
