Shine

Hi Knitters,
This morning I knit up this fun and fast Star Washcloth. It measures about 9 inches from point to point.
I am planning on whipping this pattern into shape today and having it up by the weekend so you can get some Stars made before the 4th of July. They would also be cute in pastels and brights of any sort, not just a patriotic twist. I want to make a couple more using the white and blue as the star color and the others for trim. Out of 3 balls of Cotton Chenille you could get at least 3 and probably a few more Star Washcloths.

I have another summer design poised to go after the Star. That will be next up and very soon.
Chris in Grand Rapids sent me this lovely shot of her Butterfly Washcloth made in Tahki Cotton Classic. She loves it because it is so soft and elegant in this yarn. It is a gift for her butterfly-loving sister.

I thought that you might enjoy this summery treat from Chris.

I'll be back quick with the fun Star pattern.
best, susie

Too cute. I made your BSA Knit Chicken pattern recently, and then ran out and bought 2 more copies to give away on my blog (contest ongoing). Such an adorable pattern. Thanks!

Thanks for sharing my humble little butterfly, Susan! The fact that a fairly inexperienced knitter like myself could learn a couple new techniques and actually complete it is a testament to your great pattern writing.

The star is beautiful!
