Washcloth KAL/CAL : All Done!

Yay!  The Washcloth KAL/CAL is all done!  I knit eight of them!

Did anyone out there in Internet Land knit or crochet any?  I’d love to see them if you did.  Leave a comment and let us know where we can see them.

Otherwise, I still enjoy knitting washcloths as a hot weather project.  I even bought more cotton yarn at a creative reuse store yesterday.  I made out pretty well with my haul from The Art of Recycle in Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA!  (Oh, and they are a Pokestop, too.  Yes, I’m playing Pokemon Go.)

So, I hope that you had fun with the KAL/CAL, even if you didn’t knit any and just read along with what I was doing with it myself.  Have a great weekend, everyone!

Washcloth KAL/CAL: Week 3

It’s week 3 of the Washcloth KAL/CAL!  How are yours coming along?

I finished the washcloth above at the end of last week, and am weaving in the ends on another.  The washcloth featured here is actually being put to good use today.  I’m using it as a warm compress on my left eye.  I think I have pink eye.  Bleh.

The warm water on the cloth on my eye feels good, and is much better than using a paper towel which would be my next option if I didn’t have the washcloth.  I’m glad I do.

How are yours coming along?  Anyone out there knitting along with me?  I would love to see your work.  Let me know in the comments, or put post on the Facebook page.

Let’s move on to something else for the time being.

The Big WUL Giveaway!

Recently, The Wrap, UP Lancaster! Project started a blog over at wrapuplancaster.org!  To celebrate and to raise some funds, we are having a fundraiser/giveaway.  Get all the cool details here on how to enter!

And….see our fabulous prizes you could win here and here!  Some of them are good only for the local Lancaster, PA area, but there are some great things that could be shipped just about anywhere, like yarn, t-shirts, and tote bags.  Enter!

Also, WUL founder, Angelia Reed, is being honored as the Emerald Foundation’s Hometown Hero tonight at this evening’s Lancaster Barnstormers game.  She is throwing out the first pitch!  Go, Angelia!

Check back here early next week for the details on how WUL’s big night at the ballgame went.  Woo hoo!  Go, ‘Stormers!

 

Washcloth KAL/CAL: Week 2

I got one washcloth done for week two of the Washcloth KAL/CAL.  I am working on another one during my work breaks.  Washcloths are turning out to be a nice, steady project that I can get a lot done in a few minutes, and therefore are perfect for quick knitting!

I donated this particular cloth, along with the others I’ve made so far, to The Wrap Up, Lancaster Project‘s Things to Sell Bin that is taken to different craft shows, such as the past one at the Millersville Community Church’s Family Fun Day this past Saturday on June 11, 2016.

Unfortunately, we didn’t sell anything, but we got the word out, and some volunteers!  Spreading the world about WUL is important, too.  Below is a shot of our lovely tables at the event.

Speaking of WUL…..

We now have a shiny new blog over at https://wrapuplancaster.org!  There’s not much on it, but we’re working on getting more content up every day.

Besides that, we have now have a mailing list, where you can sign up to be informed about events, where the scarf bombings will be, and other non-spammy information.  Even if you aren’t in the area, I encourage you to sign up!

And, lastly, and probably the most important item, is we need funds.  We are in desperate need of storage space and an office.  Please head over to the GoFundMe page to donate!

So, that’s the news your can use for today in my knitting world. I’d love to hear about how your washcloths are coming along!

Washcloth KAL/CAL: Week One

How is your washcloth knitting or crocheting coming along?  I completed three over the weekend.  They are show above in the featured image.  I had forgotten how much fun it is to knit these!  I’d love to see what you’re working on for the KAL/CAL, too.

As I was starting to work on these on Friday, I was racking my brain trying to remember if I had any washcloth booklets around that I could use.  Aha!  I recalled one that I had bought for $.25 at the Art of Recycle a few month ago.  Yay!

If you want your own copy, you can still get this on Amazon.

So, that’s where I am with my washcloth knitting.  I’m actually working on the cloth labeled #1 on the front cover here.  The green and purple one was done using this pattern, but I want to see how it looks in a multicolored yarn, too, so that’s what on my needles right now.
