It is fiber Sunday here in my corner of the world and time for my Year of Projects update. A big hello to my friends from last year's project and to you who might be new to my blog. I am glad you stopped by!
I have lots to share today---now that I have some smooth jazz playing, a diet coke by my side I think I am all set to pull a post together.
First of all, I have a finished object!!
I really needed to get this little Owlie Sack finished before Ravellenics and I have succeeded! Now I need to start the little hat to go with it--the hat should be a piece of cake and I plan to cast on as soon as this update is completed. Note: when I knit this again, I will knit it a little longer as it seems a little short to me.
Next up is the beginnings of my 5th and last dishcloth for my August swap.
I am loving each one I have finished and think it will be hard to send them off. :) This one will be so bright and summery when completed----for the middle where I do two repeats of the pattern in a different color will be white in this one.
A couple of years ago, when I started looking at dishcloth groups to join there was a big public sadness amongst dishcloth knitters as Walmart was going to no longer carry the Peaches & Cream cotton--apparently, it is a softer cotton yarn than Lily's Sugar and Cream, which is all I had ever used. But lo and behold, guess what my Walmart is carrying? Yup! Peaches and Cream.
Here is a random photo I am sharing of my hydrangeas which are just starting to bloom-I look forward to them every summer.
And last but not least--here is a teaser photo of a project I am starting which is not on my list....yet...
I have a post ready to go tomorrow all about it and it is a fun one!!!
Well folks, I think that is all the yarny news I have for today. I will be off to visit everyone else later today.
