SLOW SUNDAY NIGHT

After a great day with other sewers yesterday I thought it best to have a slow night.
I thought I would link up with Kathy and the others 
I decided to just sit, watch TV & knit more dishcloths.
I found this great pattern which is suitable for XMAS as well as other times of the year.
I was given some 8 ply cotton. Off I went. Click, click, clack.....

This was out of HANDMADE COUNTRY CHRISTMAS CRAFTS.. Vol 29 No 8...


 Then one for my daughter with her initial on it. KKKKKKKKKKK.

Basic pattern from

The pattern uses a thicker cotton than 8 ply. All I could find is 8 ply so that's what I used. Paired it up with size 3mm (11) needles and it measured up to the same size as all the others.
I did add an extra 10 rows above and below the initial as well as 5 sts either side of the initial.
