Hello friends! It’s been so long since I have written a blog post… about 9 months or so I think?? To catch you up since my last post in June I started working full time and… we bought a house! It’s a cute little fixer upper that was built in the 1940s and I am hoping to get some posts out about projects and decorating things.
We really haven’t done too much with it other than painting. I did however create a gallery wall around the TV, hung up some cute finds from Target and got some really good deals on new stainless steal appliances! Stay tuned for those posts coming soon. 🙂
To be honest the plan was to start back blogging again in January at the start of the new year but ended up not getting around to it, but in writing this post I am realizing that I totally missed blogging. It feels so good to be back!
The other night I whipped up these Easy Textured Knit Dishcloths. They are super easy and quick to make. I actually ended up knitting them at the same time. My size 8 knitting needles are pretty long and left enough room for me to cast on both. I just knit normally and made sure not to tangle the yarn balls.
A printable PDF version of this pattern can be purchased here.
