The Knitting Experiment Pouch (with pattern)
Farm News: No Newt yet - a neighbor's dog also turned up sick and was saved by a vet this weekend - for organic phosphate poisoning... I'm not sure what that means, but is suspicious. The dog fell unconscious with a high fever on Saturday, and was taken to the vet where quick action on his part saved her life. Since there were no marks on Radar and no other sign why he died -- and no sign of Newt for several days... I wonder. Willow was sick last Thursday and Friday for a short period of time - she got sick in our car and then laid in my lap for hours, but she had recovered entirely before we left for Memphis. She isn't an outside cat either - and she has all her vaccinations (which Radar didn't have yet, he was just barely 10 weeks old)
I think Stefanie and CarrieK had it right, I looked at the MDK book while I was in the Davis-Kidd bookstore in Memphis. I'm just not a 'pattern-follower' type of person, not usually at least.
Is the MDK washcloth flat before it is drawn up? This is really poofy there at the bottom, but when it is drawn into a pouch it works perfectly, kind of like the bottom of a 16 oz. bottle of pop - that lobed flower design.
I guess I'll just keep calling this a happy experiment - one that turned out to be something :o)
I tracked down (almost) what I did by trying it a second time.
I don't reccommend Cotton Twist for this though, the extra twisted string kept snagging on my needles and looking like my cats attacked the project.
Beware, as I am not a pattern follower, I am not a pattern writer much either! I call my pattern writing style 'narrative text' - but you might just call it naive knitter :o)
If you make one - Let me know! I would like to see what others get for results! :o) Thanks!
I wonder - can you tell I'm a computer programmer? ;oP I think that pattern looks like some of my recent code! *grins*
