Domino effect

p7175573.jpgMy SP10 spoiler, Pixie, gave me a terrific book called Domino Knitting, by Vivian Hoxbro. I had mentioned the technique in a post but didn’t know much about it. I finally got around to trying the technique last week when I got together to knit with some friends. I decided to use good ol’ dishcloth cotton and cast on twenty-five stitches. I started with one square…

I’ve got one square (of nine total) to go, and once I add the border the result will be a bit larger than a standard dishcloth, I think. I guess it will justĀ  make the recipient extra clean!

    I love domino’s. I have been slowly working on a afghan out of them. Its very very slow going as I am using sock yarn. But I love the effect it has.

    Happy knitting
