Who?! Me! A Yarn Ho, who told?!

Last post I happily admitted that I am a Yarn Girl...I am and I will gladly tell the world! I then began thinking about just how much I enjoy yarn...and I like it...A LOT.
Yes, yarn and the accumulation of has become a bit of an obsession of late. That said, I decided a new washcloth moniker would be one that is also truthful about me (as my other designs have been)....

Yes, I'm a YARN HO (ask my hubby, Music Man, he'll tell you!)...what about you?! There, I said it...I'm a Yarn Ho, I'm a Yarn Ho, I'm a Yarn Ho. Now, the world knows, as if it was unknown before my revelation!!
This is the last in a short line of washcloth designs with this and that saying looped into the cloth. Ya gotta love a craft in which you can do this! Not only can a knitter create absolutely gorgeous creations like a light as air intricate lace shawl or a complex aran sweater...but little washcloths with sayings looped into the sts! This is one of the reasons that I just LOVE knitting!

Allow me to share my latest washcloth creations:

KNIT ON washcloth...inspired by my favorite knitting show, Knitty Gritty, in which the hostess, Vickie Howell's motto is "KNIT ON!" A good creed it is!

Next we have the "LIVE TO KNIT" cloth...another good knitting creed, don't you think?! Yes, the knitting theme is giving me away as the obsessed knitter that I am.

"KNIT TO LIVE" washcloth which is the partner to "LIVE TO KNIT"......my knitting creed continues.

"JUST SAY KNIT" is a favorite of mine. For years we have heard "Just Say No," great guidance it is. But, since I've been knitting I've found that knitting helps to relieve the many stresses that we find in daily life, so...I say...."JUST SAY KNIT"


I can't leave out "YARN GIRL" when discussing my knitting creed, now can I?!



Then, of course, that little saying that began my washcloth design diversion....."BORN TO KNIT"...and I believe that I was!

Thus ends the knitting creed washcloths.........
The patterns can be found on the sidebar. Enjoy and God Bless.

How about "Yarn Snob"? Of course, I'm not. My hubby just calls me that.
