Fibers on Friday: Two Projects!

Hold on to your hats! Bethy has two projects on needles for the first time ever! I'm diving deep into the realm of multiple projects and I'm loving it!

Here is the progress I've made on the sweater for Afghans for Afghans:

And here is my second little project; a washcloth! I hope you weren't expecting more! I desperately need new washcloths and I have a few I should really make as gifts, so I need to have one going as a second little project to pick up.

PS. Does anyone have any good advice or resources for making blog headers? Mine is way too big and I'm just not good at working with them. (ETA: I did it! How do you like it? I think it's a good size now.)


  1. I always love your color choices - you've got great taste in fibers, lady! As for the header, I have no idea how to resize them. Sorry I can't help - but I do love the new one!

  2. First, love your washcloth yarn, and whats the pattern? I normally do the idiots dishcloths or a pinwheel...

    You have to resize your image before you put it into blogger. Do you have a program to do that with? Typically your header size is your choice but I have found that 11.5" x 4" works well with most templates.

    If you don't have a program that you can change your image size, email me your file and I can resize it for you.

  3. I wish I could help you with the blog header, but I'm still clueless as to how to adapt mine! I really want an update! ;-)

    Your projects are amazing, as always! Not only working with 2 needles (amazing to this 1-hook-is-plenty-to-keep-track-of lady...) but 2 projects!!! Beautiful.

  4. Great advice from Felicia, if you do re-size yourself make sure you set the image resolution to something like 72 pixel/inches which would be 828 pixels with a 11.5 inch image, about right for a header. Height wise you can obviously also use smaller than 4 inches. You might want to try to make your image 828 pixels wide and then crop the height to what looks right to you.

  5. I like your blog header. As a matter of a fact, I was thinking that it was really eye-catching--too many girlie, girl & cutesy banners out there. You have great color contrast. Anyway, I use to alter the size of a jpeg file--it's free to use and I use it for all of my pictures, internet and personal. Check it out. You will love it!

  6. perfect banner, Beth! Well done :-)


What's on your mind, friend?
