December 15 2016 Challenge KAL

 Peppermint Coaster
This Peppermint Coaster is perfect to use with my lovely Poppy tea mug, a gift from my sister!

Lassie 2005 ~ 2016

Wild Irish Rose ~ *Rosie*

Now that you have Day 1 accomplished, the rest of the knit is the same pattern!
- the only difference is that you will change colors after each set of five *rows* -
  Then you cast off and coil your cord up and sew together!

I am going to give you the link today, in case what I've said is clear as mud...
Enjoy your new Peppermint Coaster!

  Find the entire pattern -and also a pattern for making one with a Knitting Spool [what a great  project for your kids or grandkids to do!] at their site, below [and I dare anyone to go there and just knit this pattern--there are sooo many that you are going to find that you *just gotta knit*!!!]

 Check out my own coaster in our yahoo albums, too!  Merry Christmas fellow knitters!  ~ Linda

Hi, -
Getting you started in the Christmas spirit!  I'm wearing my new Christmas-y neckerchief, after leaving Petco Grooming yesterday! ~  Woof!  from, Rosie

Finished November Challenge KAL - "Shades of Christmas", pattern by Janet Nogle

 Now I can tell you - that I did use more than the two colors - I used my scrap pieces!  Using the variegated plus solid red first, then when I ran out, I used solid green.    It will be fun to use other color combos to see what effect you can get - enjoy!

here's a photo after today's rows - hope everyone is enjoying the pattern - anxious to hear and see what color choices everyone used!

Welcome to our mid-November Challenge KAL!

August 1st KAL

You have made Bubbles, a little fish to help with your dishes at the sink!

Hope everyone has enjoyed this KAL - please, check the link below to see the other version of Bubbles. 

Thank you so very much to Susan Mrenna -
For more variations of Bubbles, including Bubbles with a Fin, visit her designer's page at:

Bubbles is a very versatile little fish.
He can be a Baby Wash Cloth, a Scrubbie, a Dishcloth, a washcloth, a cat toy and more.
Bubbles may be made using any yarn that suits your intended purpose. Solids and
varigated yarns both work well. Use scraps and make an exotic tropical fish. Use cotton
for dish and wash cloths and acrylic or cotton for scrubbies.
Bubbles is easily adapted to many sizes by working more or fewer body rows. The mouth
and tail are the same in all sizes.

Terry's Mosaic Chevron Pattern
- I chose to use green and white for my dishcloth - what colors did you use?

hi fellow knitters -
  Here are your last day of rows!

I really hope that you have enjoyed this design - I thought it was a lovely cloth -
and you could adapt it to make an afghan even-*chevron patterns* are popular now - it could make for a nice little baby blanket.
Thank you so much to our designer, Terry Liann Morris ~you can find more of her designs at Ravelry, 
and at her own site, see the end of this pattern for that info.

  Let's not forget to keep Janet in our thoughts and prayers for recuperating - we all know that can often be harder on us than the surgery!  Take care, Janet - Get Well Soon, we are eager to see you back in our next KAL  : )
Thank you for letting me host this KAL -
I've enjoyed introducing Mosaic Knitting to some of our knitters ~

    A huge thank you to designer, Terry Liann Morris ~
You can find more of her designs, mosaic and others, at, and at her site:
