....................... more Knitting,plus..

Hi
Wow, it has been a while. Sorry there is no tatting, yet. I am working on something(s) right now, but can't show them. But, if you know me and you know what month it is.. you know it has something to do with Halloween! I have been working on my knitting, too. So here is a photo. I finished this dishcloth, it is a Dalek from Dr. Who. I learned to make bobbles doing this one! I have to make another one for a friend for Christmas. He won't be expecting this, so it will be fun. I also had the "bright" idea of making an afghan from several dishcloths. There is one problem though... every one I have done so far is a different size! They don't usually tell you the size when you make them. Here is one, it is a bat and moon...it is 8x8! Pretty large compared to others I have done. I used the same needles and yarn, so it isn't my "gauge". Hmmm I will have to think this over. Anyway, stay tuned for some Halloween tatting in the future.
And for those of you who love giveaways, and who doesn't, Aileen's Wickedtats is having a Halloween themed one! YEAH, sign me up!!

I like 'em! I take it the bat and moon is your own design? There has to be some way to convert the stitch count of the different squares so they're all the same size. It would definitely make for a cool afghan.

thanks! nope, I got the bat and moon off of Ravelry. I am addicted to that site!!
There might me a way to convert, but I wouldn't have a clue how to do it, being I am just learning...

Great cloths! I sometimes make fancy ones, but I tend to stick with the plain Jane pattern so that I don't have to think too much!
