The TueReview: Mason Dixon Knitting by Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne

9780307236050yeah, I know. You’ve seen it before. What. Ev. Er. I just got my grubby mitts on it, and this is my blog, and today! The topic! Is Mason Dixon Knitting. Now, in truth, I saw this book briefly when it first came out, but I have forgotten most of it, except that I really wanted a copy. And now I have it. As usual, I’ll take you along with me as I leaf through the book for the (almost) first time. And I’ll keep Ravelry open in another tab, too, so I can add stuff to my queue.

Oh, the dishcloths. You know, that reminds me of how I knit dishcloths to take to my dear Sister in Law in Texas. My mama thought I was slap crazy when I announced my intention to deliver a basket of five dishcloths and a bottle of Dawn as a hostess gift for a week long stay. My mama ought to read Ann and Kay. My SIL, she was delighted. And I was glad, as it took me the entire drive to knit them. I only have one kntted dishcloth myself, and it’s in the repair bin. But I can see it’s time to get another cone of cotton.

And look at the little felted boxes! How cute are those? And those huge -squared log cabin blankets. Those would be the Moderne Log Cabin Blankets. Yes, with an E. I feel a sure and certain need to creat one of these before a certain young family member makes an appearance. Here in just a couple of weeks. *Gulp* Queued.

And the Nina Shawl! A shawl for me has been on my must be knit list for so long, it’s pitiful. Since I gave TheClone the one that hung on the back of my rocking chair, so it must be about 3 years, at least. Queued.

Ok, guess it’s time to go to Wal-mart for the dishcloth cotton to make myself some dishcloths. I’ll need to go to ACMoore to get something good enough for the baby blanket (dishcloth cotton would be way too heavy), and I’m thinking svale for the shawl. Too bad I am on a yarn fast, huh? The most I’ll be able to talk myself into is yarn for the Moderne Log Cabin for the new baby.
