RMT- December 15

RMT- December 15

My house is a disaster, and my ‘spot’ on the couch is covered in yarn, poly fill and bits of floss and glitter, must be December!  24 days until the big day, and like all makers, I’d bet you’ve got lots to do!  Instead of getting shorter, my list of to-do’s seems to be growing, imagine that!  Like Santa, I need to check it twice….. everyday!

 

Image result for december

A sweet friend asked me today, why don’t you do some of this earlier in the year?  After the fits of laughter, I replied, “I guess I’m just not that smart!”  Some part obviously thrives on pressure and deadlines, but there’s another side that sure does enjoy some peaceful, easy December, or at least the thought of it!  So with that in mind, I offer you once again a chance to join me in knitting a humble dishcloth, a few minutes of peace everyday!!

And for an added Christmas treat, my friend Miranda who designs and creates Whimsical Bags, is offering all Domestic Dash readers a 15% discount in her etsy shop,  on orders over $20, simply use the code quarterstitch at checkout!  These bags are all handmade, and a personal favorite of mine, I have several, I keep a separate project in each one.  (The zippered Box style, is perfect, even for adult sweater projects!)  This offer expires on the 15th!

 

P1020477

How it works –

Come back to THIS post every day through December, and I’ll add two additional rows  to the pattern, listing the new rows under the date they are posted.  Don’t worry if you miss a day, I will just add the rows, never remove them.     **You may find it helpful to bookmark thedomesticdash.com, so you can find your way back!**

Use any worsted weight cotton yarn you like, (but a solid color will show up the design better).

Knit so that you create a ‘firm’ fabric, to really show off the relief stitches.  The tighter you knit the cloth, the more the design will POP!  For most of you, this will be a size 6 or 7 needle.  If you like a smaller dishcloth try using a dk weight cotton and a size 5 needle.

Just for fun, if/when you have a guess as to the design, leave a comment, the FIRST person to make an exact guess will win a prize from The Quarter Stitch in Wilmington, NC!  Good Luck!

    Loving the “Hello December” picture..of things to come just down the road.(just like the RMT)..it wouldn’t feel like Christmas with out some snow..My favorite carol is Silent Night, and on a snowy night this is just what it feels like..Silent Night..not a sound or soul is observed…Happy Knitting!

    I like the picture too. It reminds me of one of my favorite Christmas Songs… “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas” Looking forward to another great month of knitting! Merry Christmas to one and all.

    Wow – bad weather here last weekendl and 4 days with no internet. Finally found something worse than being hungry – lol! Jonibee, congrats to you for winning last month’s prize. Decided to go with white cotton yarn for this one. No ideas what it will be, so will go along for the ride. Just so nice to see the sun out and experience warmer temps today. As always, thanks Claire for all you do – I appreciate you and all who help you!

    I gave the Christmas RMT to my son who is a mechanic and is restoring an old truck actually making a “Rat Rod” out it. He has always been into mechanics ever since he was a little boy. I gave the two preceeding RMTs to our grandaughter who has a young son who is three years old, I figured he would like the Cayote’, and Elephant when he bathes. It’s nice when you can make others happy with your creations…Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year to All!

    Jonibee, I often give my RMT creations to others too. My older sister uses them as facecloths, my younger sister marvels at the designs on them, and a dear friend keeps them in his motorhome as dishcloths. I stack them in a pile and before long they come in handy for gift giving. Everyone loves them. I very much enjoy participating on this site. It is a win-win!

    I don’t know if it is because of the picture Claire used for this month or not but I am also using white cotton yarn. I am not even trying a guess this time because my guesses either at the beginning or after a few rows don’t even come close. I hope everyone is closer to being ready for the holidays than I am.

    Claire, I did go into the site and found it very interesting..I knit and crochet for charity..our group meets once a week at the YMCA..we knit for Turning point & Baby point which is for homeless or nearly homeless women & children..also mittens and hats or scarfs to go with the coat donations..chemo caps for hospitals..I also knit baby sweaters & blankets for the church that are sent overseas for missions..I am elderly and have plenty of time..it also keeps my arthritic hands moving..we have a lot of yarn donated, plus most of us have a good stash of our own..it makes your heart feel good knowing that you are helping others who need it..

    This month is going very fast..I can’t believe the weather that we’re having up in the 50s and 60s. I’m finishing up fingerless gloves for our DIL who requested them after seeing the ones I made for our adult grandaughter..This is the fourth pair and I have a request for my niece via my sister..These gloves are cute they have an owl knitted into the design . I do want to knit an angel dish/wash cloth before Christmas. I just finished addressing Christmas cards, now to finish the wrapping of gifts. I don’t do cookies anymore ..do any of you still bake them?

    Can’t believe it’ll be Christmas in two weeks! It was 82 degrees and sunny today – beautiful! I know any day now winter will pop up and we’ll be freezing! The horses have their winter coats and beards and are just waiting for the temps to drop. Went grocery shopping today and am planning meals and snacks. Will be just DH, me and our fur babies for the holidays this year. I finished a ceramic tree we will use so the cats won’t be tempted to climb it! Been so busy have not knit as much as I’d like. DH and I installed vinyl siding on our new porch enclosure and DH and a friend put a metal roof on his workshop. So much to do, so little time. Have absolutely no clue what this cloth is. Time will tell…

    Our neighborhood is all lit up ..one neighbor has that leg lamp that was in the Christmas Story..to each their own…We usually take a drive through the surrounding town and neighborhood to view the lights. I decided to use a smaller version of the Christmas tree this year and lighten up on the decorations. Though every room has a touch of Christmas in it one way or another. I’ve been knitting fingerless cabled gloves with an owl knitted on the top and use mini- buttons for the eyes. I’m on my fifth pair as the others have been given to family members already and my sister requested a pair for her adult daughter. They knit up quickly and was found in the June 94 issue of Simply Knitting magazine. I love this magazine as it has Alan Dart creations in it. I buy them used…

    I am going to delve in and make one guess St. Lucias’ crown otherwise known as St. Lucys’ Day in Sweden the only thing there are five candles on her crown ..so again this could be a wrong guess..she brought food to the persecuted Christians hiding in the catacombs in Rome during the time of Emperor Diocletian. Because she delivered in the darkness of night she wore Candles on her head tucked away into a green leaf wreath. This practice is still going on today.. only she delivers coffee and buns “Saffronsbrod” to her family who are still sleeping..Usually its a different daughter who gets chosen each year. She wears a long white robe with a scarlett sash along with the crown on her head. I love different country traditions especially at Christmas.

    Is it a spoon, fork, and a knife?

    I think it’s a good idea to wrap it up (figuratively speaking..like a Christmas present)..that way all can enjoy the holidays until the 1st. This RMT has definately been a thinker or it’s so easy that I’m not seeing it…

    Thank you Claire. The yarn looks beautiful. I already know what I will make with it. I will be making finger less gloves or mittens. Not only is this a Merry Christmas gift, but also a Happy Birthday gift as today is my birthday. I am so excited to win this month!

    I want to thank Claire for the Christmas RMT that was done in Nov. . For those who are interested in what I received …A lovely woolly lamb that is actually a tape measure, row markers that are stainless steel or chrome triangles with a colored crystal bead on three and a pewter butterfly on , a beautiful skein of charcoal “Cheshire Cat”, because of the varying shades of grey Merino wool 4 oz superwash yarn. It is so soft and attractive looking. I am very happy with what I received and again Thank You….PS: I did wait until today to open it up…

    Hope everyone had a wonderful and blessed Christmas. I congratulate Elizabeth on her correct guess. My poor little dishy is on row 10 so you can see I have a lot to do before 2016 and January’s riddle. May I wish all of you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.
    Claire and Betty thank you for a year of fun.

    I hope each and every one of you had a wonderful and magical holiday up too and including New Year’s Eve(which saw me safely tucked into bed with my book way before midnight). I didn’t have the time to knit December’s cloth with you but jumped in to see the winner – huge congrats Elizabeth and … Jonibee, I don’t know that I could have held off the opening so kudos to you big time : ). Hope to hop in and knit with you all again this month.
