First of all, I would like to greet all of you with Happy New Year 2009.
This year I decided to practice my knit again. If it wasn’t because I wanted to learn how to knit, I don’t think I will find my passion in crocheting. The reason I learn to knit again is because each time I see knit wearable patterns I always want to be able to make it. It just I’m not patient enough to deal with drop stitches and when there’s a miscount in pattern, it’s harder to undo the mistake compared to crochet.
Anyway, before new year, we moved to the new unit and I need more dishcloths, coasters and hot pad. So, this is a good reason to try to make them (knit or crochet).
I chose the smock dishcloth pattern since it only need knit and purl and a little bit slip knit to make the smock. It took me 3 days to finish this dishcloth 🙁 . I must be very slow in knitting. I was lucky there was no drop stitches while I was making this dishcloth.
In the middle of making the knit dishcloth, I had 1 daisy square from krochet krystal that was almost finish, so I continued it a little bit and decided to use it as dishcloth also.
Tired of knitting, I made something in crochet again. I chose flower hot pad pattern, and I used the same maroon yarn that I used on smock dishcloth. The flower hot pad is very easy and I finished it only in a few hours. My speed in crochet is way faster than knit, but I will not give up to knit again.
Anyway, I almost forget that I made 2 flower coasters on December last year. The coaster pattern was also very simple and easy to make.
