Gord was in St. Catharines in a fencing tournament today ... he came in 24/48. Yay, Gord!
I spent the day on the couch knitting and watching movies ... that's what I was in the mood for.
* Mallrats - I'd never seen it before. Not a good as I was expecting.
* The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert - it's been a while since I've seen it
* My Big Fat Greek Wedding
* Wild Hogs
* There's Something About Mary
* Meet the Parents - I went to bed halfway
I've been wanting to learn how to entrelac. I think it's a cool pattern and I was getting it ... but I wasn't enjoying doing it. So pulled the dishcloth apart after a couple hours.
Instead I made a fin and feather pattern dish cloth:
Cotton yarn and size 4.5mm knitting needles
Cast on 42 stitches (or a multiple of 18 plus 6)
Knit 3 rows of garter stitch for the border
Row 4: Knit
Row 5: K 3, P to last 3 stitches K3
Row 6: K3, *(K2 tog) 3 times, (yo, K1) 6 times, (K2 tog) 3 times, rep from * to last 3 sts K3
Row 7: Knit
Repeat Rows 4 - 7, keeping first and last 3 stitches in garter stitch, until piece measures desired length
Knit 3 more rows of garter stitch to make the bottom border
Cast off and darn in ends
