Knitting Break (entry 26)

So Jackie from Jackie's Stitches Blog I love this blog and have it in my RSS feeds so I don't miss a thing!! She is a quilter and a knitter and some of you quilters out there are also knitters...well I've been taking a break from quilting and started picking up my needles lately - mostly for Christmas presents and hostess gifts.

Anyway, I was reading Jackie's blog and she had the cutest knitting needle keeper so I had to tell her about mine from my Mum I think in the 70's she made it - here's the pics Jackie - just for you;)

 

Closed and Tied!!

Open obviously...love it!

Here's some of the cloths I've whipped up...I always wonder why they make the cute little cotton dishcloth balls of yarn so small...I always have this little bit left over like enough to do just 1/4 or 1/2 of the next one...so I've improvised some of them

All of these below I didn't use a pattern just made them up out of my own experiences with knitting.

this one is showing using up the speckled yarn and adding in the plain

More to come, I'm also working on some scarves...
