What can I say? I have a 4 year old.

Grrr face cloth from the latest knitty. I made mine with less than half a ball of Lily's Sugar'n Cream. I think it took all of an hour.

I did do mine quite differently. I used an easier loop stitch from knittinghelp.com. (Find the video here under decorative stitches.) Also I just purled on the WS rows. I knit Eastern/Combination style and stocking stitch comes easier. It gave a nice nobbly texture on the back.

It's being test driven in a bubble bath right now.

Onto Sewing:

I've cut out Burda 6/07, bias top 120 and am half way through it. This is my fabric, a very drapey, squirrelly tencel rayon blend. Pretty stuff.

Because it's a little heavy, however, it's dragging down on the bias and has brought the center front V neck towards the bottom of my bra band. So I have take up the shoulder seams and re-sew the neckband seams. All of this is easy, but I'm finding knitted lions just a touch easier.

I wish I was more driven!


  1. Wow...that was fast! Very cute!

  2. That washcloth is perfect for a 4 year old. Why didn't I think of that when I saw it? Maybe it is because my little ones are all grown and gone. But now I am thinking I can make it look less lion like and use it for myself instead of the plastic scrunchie I use now. Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. Thanks - it has passed bathtub muster. It's not washing much boy, but it's apparently a great toy.
