Heirloom Knits. It is a beautiful collection of patterns from 1820 designs thru 2010. Lots of really cool ideas sprang into my head. And then I stopped for a moment. There were bedspreads and pillows and rugs. I looked around my house. The only way you could tell there was a knitter in the house was the totes of yarn. There were no rugs or pillows or afghans. This really opened my eyes to the fact that I have been really focused on clothing in 2010. Granted, there is nothing wrong with hand knit clothing, but I want to branch out to make my house a knitters home. Also, as I noted in my resolutions for 2011, I want to gift more of my knitting this year. So, I got up, went to the den, fired up my computer and went to my well spring of patterns (Ravelry) and found a pattern for a hand towel, which I have affectionately named Not Your Grandmother's Cotton Towel. Pictures will be coming later today.
