I've caught the fever.

Yesterday I went to Hobby Lobby and Michael's with my coupons and bought some Sugar 'n' Cream. Within five hours of coming home, I not only knit an entire dishcloth, I ate dinner, read some of my book, made my workout plan, surfed the web. Heh. No wonder Ana calls me a fast knitter.

Yeah. These cloths have been on my mind for a while now. And I don't even like knitting cotton. But they called to me! And alas, with a 40% and a 50% off coupon, I knew it was time. Just cast on for the second one, alternating the colours. I will still have leftovers, I believe. I already have my eyes set on a green/blue/white/yellow combo. mmmm. those leftovers will work well with these, methinks!

In the mail today, I received the first part of my payment from that shawl I knit:

I cannot wait to knit the short-row fair isle sweater in here! The 1824 wool to do so is also coming as my payment.

Scarf I'm crocheting to offset the skarfs:

Yay for updating with actual knitting! Time to go work on this dishcloth before Matt picks me up for dinner :)

They are so addicting, aren't they? More than I thought they would be.

I'm not trying to make you hate me. I'm just too picky for the off the rack dress. None of them screamed "STRING!" hehe

I got my garter pattern in my knitting pattern a day calender. PM me with your addy and I can send it to you.

Helen! My grandmother LOVED the shawl. She immediately made me help her get it on and she was smiling and smiling. We didn't have the camera with us, but we will get a photo of her wearing it soon, I promise! HUGS to you, beautiful.

Your dishcloth looks like its made of sherbet bricks. Very cool :)
