Back to Past Favorites

Since we finally got back into the internet world, we were able to stream TV shows and have been watching alot of TV. I wanted to do something while sitting there so I started up knitting again. I learned how to knit when I was in the 4th grade, we each had to do about a foot length of a scarf, to add to one that they had been working on for years. It was based on a story, Ernie and the Mile-Long Muffler.

I brought my knitting over to my parents house, and wanted to show my sister how to knit too. We couldn’t find any extra needles and I was sure I had some there. My sister mentioned a big box that I had left when I moved out so we had to go explore it.

We spent a good hour or so uncovering the first layer of junk in the box. Most of it was stuff I had held onto for no good reason and I threw it out. (Seriously, invitations to stuff I don’t even remember??) I did find lots of pictures, scrapbook pages, cards and letters. When I brought it home, I finally found one pair of needles and some old homework and school projects, including this one.
Anyway, after all that I was finally able to finish one wash cloth and show my sister how to knit a little too. It is just the regular knitting stitch for the entire thing, but it turned out cute! The yarn is perfect texture for a wash cloth, I used it to wash my face yesterday and it worked really well! The needles I used were size 10.5. If you want to make your own, there are tons of good videos on youtube to show you how! I had to use one to remind me how to cast off. I plan to make more with the rest of my yarn, and possibly try selling them or giving them as gifts.
