The Etsy shop stocking has been pushed back – with a bit of luck I’ll have everything ready to go by next Monday. In the mean time, I leave you with the following pictures of two new patterns that will be going live this week as free downloads…

Handy Dandy Towel

I just finished making these up for a friend of mine to use as burp cloths and I plan to make myself some to use as hand towels in my kitchen. It uses the ever popular “Ball Band” dishcloth pattern with a garter stitch border at the top and bottom and an applied I-cord at the top ending in a loop with a button closure. The models were knit with Sugar & Cream Cotton on US Size 6 Needles. As shown the towels measure 9.5″ wide and 13.5″ long. Truly a handy-dandy item to have around in your kitchen or nursery!

To Drool For – Infant Bib

Again, I knit these up for my friend’s baby. I got the inspiration from the Super Simple Bib pattern by Brandi Spray. I used increases rather than yarn-overs and incorporated a simple striping pattern. The bibs measure 7.75″ wide and 5.5″ long with a 10″ long strap with several button holes for custom sizing. The models are knit from Bernatt Cotton Mill Ends and Sugar & Cream Cotton on US Size 6 Needles. This is such a fast project and a great way to use up your odds and ends of yarn from dishcloth projects – give a bunch to a baby you love today!

That’s all folks – check back later for the patterns!
