Dinner time

While one cat eats, the next one waits her turn.
The other cat must have already eaten and must
be somewhere at the back of the line. I have three
of these feline creatures.

FO and ebay stash

I finished another dishcloth today. It's for a friend in Virginia. She doesn't knit. But she's forgiven, she does other things. She does woodworking. The dishcloth is actually yellow, but the way the photo turned out, it looks orange.

Also, my ebay win came! Yay! It's so pretty. I could just touch it all day. It's Bernat cotton. More dishcloth yarn, heheheheh!

I started a ballband dishcloth the other day. Didn't like it and ripped it out. Could not figure out how to carry the change of color yarn up the sides. Otherwise, the knit part was OK.

I wish I could figure out this whole picture thing. They always end up at the top. One of these days I'll play around more and "get it".

New Stash!

Here's my new stash! Joann's is having a sale on Sugar & Cream, so I stocked up. I just can't seem to have enough of this stuff.

I'm meeting up with my cousins on Weds for dinner. I thought I'd make each of them a dishcloth. Not a lot of time so I'm doing the basic easy one, I think it's called Gramma's Favorite. Got one done, and the other is halfway done. I'll definitely have both of them done by Weds. Then after that . . . Don't know what my next project is yet! Maybe the Ballband dishcloth. I have plenty of yarn to play with.

Can't wait until my ebay stash comes, heheheh

Weekends and Knitting

Don't ya love weekends? I live for the weekend.

My daughter and I went up to the college she will be attending in the fall on Thursday night. Toured it all day Friday and she had orientation. What an ordeal. Then drove all the way back home. A little over a 4 hour drive. If I don't see the inside of a car for a while that's fine with me. Until July 4 when we go out of town on a little vacation. Yay!
I didn't get to knit much while we were away. Of course I took stuff, lol! I started one of those dishcloths while we were there, I think it's called Gramma's Favorite. Got it finished today and started another one. I've been knitting mittens for the last few weeks and started a hat. I'm so sick of the color brown. The mittens are in that picture. I'm not crazy about them. I ended up making 2 pairs cuz the first pair seemed too small. I'm making them for my dad for Christmas. So I made a 2nd pair on larger needles. Hopefully they'll fit. They are Lion brand Wool Ease. I started a hat to go with the mittens and I've made so many mistakes on the darn thing I'm going to rip it out and start again. Sigh. So, I put the brown stuff down and have been working on nice simple colorful cotton dishcloths. Went to Joann's today and bought 5 multi color Peaches & Cream cotton yarn, it was on sale, how could I resist! I love that stuff.
Thank you to those of you who left comments about my lacy dishcloth!

Finished Items

This is the scarf I made with Patons SWS

And here is my mid month June dishcloth
I don't like where the photos ended up, and I'm trying to figure out how to move them around.

My very first blog

Hi, OK here I am. I was inspired to start a blog after reading other blogs. I love seeing others' knitted projects, whether just started, finished, thrown in the frog pond, loved, hated, whatever. So I will start a blog too. I'm writing from work at the moment, so can't post any pics, will have to do that later. Been working on a dishcloth for a Yahoo KAL group. Will finish it today. I've been really struggling with this thing, especially rows 20, 30 and now coming up on 40. I keep messing up. Oh well, it's almost done and I can move on.

So this is it for now. I'm going to go play around with this thing and see if I can make it look pretty. Back later!
