My Next Major Project...

This will be my next major project -- with little dishcloths, etc., in between working on this.
There will be two of these when I'm done --- one in the more traditional beautiful Crimson color and the second in a gorgeous rose color. Both are the fantastic Silk and Merino yarn from the Diana Collection.

Valentine's Day

Finished up the red Valentine hearts dishcloth.

Bright and cheery.

Here's another Valentine cloth -- well, the colors are appropriate anyway.

Be sure to click on this photo to see the enlarged pattern. Fun 
to do.

Finished another heart themed cloth.
Not the traditional red though.
Hard to get a photo showing the 3 hearts.
This is at an odd angle.

Another Trip To Michael's

Had to get there one more time before the sale is over or the yarn gone.

With this purchase today I am set for the rest of the winter and beyond LOL.

3 in Progress

I like to switch between pieces -- these are the 3 current dishcloths I am working on.

Mystery Pattern Dishcloth

Here is the January "mystery" pattern so far. This is from the Monthly Dishcloth Yahoo group (see right sidebar for address).
This is my first one and I am already looking forward to the February one.

On one of the lists someone mentioned that cotton yarn is on sale at Michael's.  Bundled up the grandsons and took off.  Here is some of the great yarn at $1.00 a skein.

Here are two more dishcloths I made this week --- the crocheted one on the left (I easily finished 2 crocheted ones in one evening) and a knitted on the right -- took me one evening to do one knitted --  both are very practical patterns for dishcloths, don't you think?

I love the spring looking colors of this yarn -- in -20 degrees any hint of spring is a welcome sight.

Both are made with Peaches & Cream (Peppercorn Ombre) 100% cotton yarn.  The crocheted piece is worked with a "G" hook and the knitted with #9 knitting needles.

Ice Skate Dishcloth

This ice skate dishcloth was knitted for a challenge on the Monthly Dishcloths (Knit-A-Long) group on Yahoo.

(Click link on right sidebar for more information).  All participants used the same pattern. This is the first of two for January.
