Needlework Tuesday - The Tri-Facta Approach to Needlework
First, I started on a cotton knit hand towel. i used a free pattern, Red White and Blue Dishcloth, from Lily's Sugar 'n Cream at Yarnspirations, casting on 90 stitches instead of the 64 suggested. I wanted a larger hand towel. It features a hanging loop which is handy to keep it from falling on the ground. I bought a large cone of the flecked yarn, so I might be making a few of these, though I am going to check out their other patterns.
I found that I got quite a bit accomplished by alternating between the three projects. When I got tired or reached any sort of roadblock, I got up, walked around for a bit or read, and then picked up a different project. This way, each project kept feeling fresh. I think I can keep doing this with three projects, but four might be too many. I don't want any confusion and I do want to see progress. Too many projects and the progress is spread out and I won't see the results I need to spur me on.
Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the progress of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy the encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit their blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the cute little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you.
