Yet another one!

Its not actually crooked but I don't feel like taking a different picture.

This pattern was one that I altered and it was a huge PITA. I had to redo certain parts so many times!

I'm glad its done.

Anudder dish cloth

I know, another one! I like making them because they are quick and with the move I don't feel like big commitments.

dd took the pic for me, quite the photographer I think.

New dishcloth

From this pattern

I'm considering sending it my Great-Aunt for her birthday. Its a pretty sage-y color. She could use it to wash dishes or put it under a pretty vase. She lives in a very small home so I have to be conscientious when giving her gifts.

Oh, and all 3 of my sister-in-laws are pregnant and due this Fall. So I guess I'll be doing newborn knitting. One of them at least will probably use cloth diapers so at least one soaker for her!

Hat for a newborn

I'm sending this off for Shawn's cousin's second baby, a boy named Isaiah to be born fairly soon.

Its the leftover yarn from my socks. Hand dyed merino.

I hope they like it!

More importantly I hope they read the book I left for them when we saw them at Thanksgiving titled "Doctors Re-examine Circumcision"

The almost finished cardigan for Grey

I have to go to the LYS to get another skein of the self striping. I bought the grey for the collar and trim but didn't want it to go up so far on the sleeves. So another skein it is.

Pattern: Cabin Fever
Size: 2T
Yarn MC: Crystal Palace Yarns Taos including the hat I used 4 skeins
CC: Lamb's Pride worsted "Misty Blue" one skein

I like the pattern, easy to read. Even a somewhat beginner could do this cardigan with the options for knitting in one piece.

I'm thinking wood toggles for the buttons, opinion?
