Warm-Up America

My newest project OTN is a 7 x 9 inch square for Warm-Up America.

Looks pretty unimpressive now but it will be cool when knitted up with many others. I should say it will be pretty warm. I'm wanting to do more charity knitting so I decided to jump on in with this one. This is being knitted in Simply Soft in black because that is what I had. There is a contest going for the group who knits the most squares with Simply Soft which has a prize of $300. My group plans to use the money if we win for more yarn to make more squares for those in need! If you are interested in joining our group, leave me a comment and I'll get you the address.

Next still on the needle is my dishcloth. I'm about 3/4 of the way done now. I am loving it. Can't wait to do some more of them. I don't have anymore cotton yarn tho....hmmm must go yarn shopping! What a drag!! *wink*

Hope you are still voting daily for February Knit Girl. Contest ends on Thursday! Well, I'm off to run errands.

I'm out

What dishcloth pattern are you knitting? I love dishcloths and cotton. that's one yarn I can never have too much of.

I knit/crochet squares for charities too, I love it.

I'll have to search for the pattern. I know it was a free one...CO 46 stitches.

Rows 1 and 2 Knit
Rows 3 and 4 K2 *K1 P1. Continue from * until last two stitches then K2.
Continue rows 1-4 until cloth is desired length.

I did not have a gauge on this...just started knittin away...

Thanks for the comment!
