I'm a Hottie!

Well, maybe I'm not a hottie, but my latest FO sure is!

My first charity project:



I really like it, I think it looks great:



Pattern: Hottie Cover from Simply Knitting issue 72
Yarn: Lion Brand Wool-Ease, Black, Ranch Red & Fisherman. Less than 1/2 a skein of each
Needles: 3.75mm circs using Magic Loop.

A quick enough project, but there were loads of ends to weave in. I think it took me the evening last night to weave them all.
So, 1 project completed for the charity craft fair, now on to the face/dish cloths!
I have plenty of cotton stash to choose from:



So I'm off to browse Ravelry to see what patterns I can find. I think I have a booklet on dishcloths too that I got in Michaels last year. I'll see if I can find it.

Good Knitting!

Nice! Your tub of cotton looks like mine! I have more than enough and I actually picked a couple up the other day because the colors were pretty!

Was that done in the round? I like the very classic zig zags :)

It's lovely Sinead!!!

Consider crochet... Ends can be worked in as you go! ;-)

Very nice! I was going to ask what a hottie was, but previous commenter spinndiva confirmed it for me :)
