the lovely yarn I purchased from Ms. Pixie Riot
color is "love you till tuesday" formerly "1-2 crush on you"

I had started a pair of Jaywalker socks out of this lovely yarn until tragedy occurred. my 2 year old ever so nicely took the needles out of the sock and bent one of them. so I rolled it back up and now have to wait until I can get another needle. sigh.

more dishcloths

the aforementioned dishcloth in buttercream and natural, really thick, almost like a potholder.

another Grandma's favorite dishcloth in yellow

and the other aforementioned DW knitted dishcloth in creamsicle

my latest obsession is...

Sugar 'n Cream yarn!

first up is Soapy the Turtle using Shades of Green for the shell and Key Lime for the legs/head/tail

next is Grandmother's Favorite Dishcloth using Hot Purple

after I take a picture there is another Grandmother's Favorite Dishcloth using Buttercream and Natural (double thick for my mother-in-law)

I also have made a DW Darrell Waltrip knitted dishcloth using Creamsicle (this is already in use, so after its washed I'll get a picture)

Monkey socks: completed

I never thought I'd actually finish these. ha! yeah right, I knew I would, they just seemed to be taking f.o.r.e.v.e.r. and a day. amazing how different each sock looks because of how the striping appears.
