Three on Thursday - Independence Day

Can you believe it's July already?  Despite the covid limitations, time is flying by, seemingly at the speed of light.  For us Americans, this Saturday is Independence Day and since our country is so torn right now, I thought we could all use a little patriotism.  And okay, okay.  I haven't knit more than ten stitches on any OTN project I have since the last time I showed them to you so I'm taking the easy way out.

Three American flag inspired things you could knit:

American Flag Turtle by Nicola Riley

It just wouldn't be Independence Day without a red, white and blue turtle!  This guy is just so cute I had to include him.  Maybe I'll have to knit one for Hayden before next year.

American Flag Pillow by Ladyship Designs

I really like this simple pillow and am thinking seriously about knitting a few for the porch glider.   And, assuming the back is just red and white stripes, I could turn it around and use it for Christmas or even Valentines.  Not that I'll be doing a lot of porch sitting in December or February, but I do love a good Christmas pillow.

American Flag Dishcloth by Aunt Susan

This American flag dishcloth would be a little quicker to knit. You could actually complete this project before Saturday. This would also make a nice donation gift for our military or veterans.

Hope you'll join me for Three on Thursday and have a wonderful weekend whether you're American or not.


  1. Oh I like all of those! I may try the dishcloth because as you pointed out, it can be done quickly. :-) Have a wonderful holiday!

  2. Happy 4th! It won't feel the same here since everything is cancelled but I have to say I really won't miss all the fireworks. Pup hates them.

  3. Thank you for the patriotic inspiration. Stay safe.

  4. Great projects.

    I think Hayden definitely needs that turtle.

  5. Great choices. I really like that pillow too.

  6. Such a cute turtle!! Happy Independence Day to you!
