FO Friday - Squares and hearts
I already explained why I chose to do the Celtic knot for one of my squares, and I think the hearts for the other are pretty obvious. What I was surprise by, was how much of an effect blocking had, especially on my cables. As this is acrylic wool, I steam blocked it, and it didn't kill the acrylic at all, but gave it a very nice soft texture with no flattening or blurring of the stitches
It is hard to tell from this picture, but as well as having straight edges, the block grew an inch in each direction, and my cables pop so much more now! The pattern is Celtic Knot No. 85
Love Day Washcloth and the light being Have a Heart Cloth. This was my first try at any form of lace (and it is very simple lace,) and I was really pleased how it came out.
Mochimochi Land (author of the Amigurumi book from a couple of weeks ago) and are just simply called Hearts.
All of these are amazing free patterns, and I'm really grateful to all the designers who make it possible for me to knit! To see other FO Friday posts, please look here and here.
