The ruminations of an artist on art & quilts, beading, knitting, drawing, painting, printmaking, bookmaking are all my passions, I love to explore creating....

Here is a fun stitch---a "mock cable":

When I get in the mood to try out a new stitch--I "swatch" by knitting the new stitch in cotton and make a dishcloth. I then have a nice finished item (and handknit dishclothes make great gifts, along with a fancy bar of soap) and I have thoroughly explored the new stitch.

I like this stitch so much I am already casting on some lovely handspun wool to make a hat with it!

I love that stitch. I think it would be great for the ribbing on a heavily cabled item.

Ditto on the washcloths. They're great.
