Dishcloth in cotton

This is a dishcloth in crochet, just normal basic stitch, single crochets, made in Katia big cotton.
Its a very nice, very thick stretchy cotton yarn; I think I used hook number 9.

I got some lovely yarn in the post yesterday..........

I bought some unloved yarn via Ravelry and its so beautiful  cant wait to knit with it.
Its a stunning colour isn't it, its Simply Knit from Dibadu
colorway is “weites Land”.  

I was also so lucky that Sabine(who I bought this lovely yarn from) that she also gave me two mini skeins ; the red is Posh yarn Jeannie and the green yarn is wollmeise pure.
Its even more stunning in real life and I m so grateful Sabine gave me these as I v never seen or touched or smelled ; yes when you are a yarn addict/knitting addict then that is what you do.LOL

Thank you so much Sabine.

Childrens sweater in size 2/3 y old

This is a plane, basic easy children's sweater in size 2/3 y old but I think it may be 3/4 y old.
Its knitted in 4 pieces( front ,back, arms) and sewn together and its alpaca yarn.
One is the Viking Eco alpaca yarn and the other I believe its fairytale but you can use any similar yarns.
I used size 7mm needles on this and I made the back slightly longer than the front.
Now I m just so curious to know if the recipient likes it..............
So Aleisha ; I worked hard on your sweater so I hope you like it and that your mummy will wash it accordingly to my instructions which is HAND WASH.
Sorry about that, will knit an easy washable one later :)
