Dishy Wednesday!

Dish rags galore!
I still can't get myself to pick up the languishing sweater. I will try to work on it tonight. I think it just takes a bit to find where I left off and usually I am too tired to figure that out. I knit in the evenings while watching TV. Still on the last of the 3 trashy novels from the library, I will move on to something better after this one.

My Prayer flags
My friend, Lisa, came down to our quilt guild and gave a lecture on Prayer Flags. It was wonderful! I sewed my mini swap blocks into flags and have them hanging on my back fence. I am putting the message of Friendship out into the world.

Old milk can
We have a lot of "yard art" in our backyard. Most of it is rusty junk we have collected over the years. My sweetie bought this for me at a yard sale many years ago. Someone had painted it and after all these years in the weather the paint is peeling off. I love the way it looks!

This is my KCCO and yarn along post for this week.

Knitting progress

I was able to finish the knitting on my scarf. The pattern calls for it to be blocked first and then grafted. So it goes into the blocking pile.

Knitting is finished.
I am still on the paperback romance binge. Another light, easy read that I will forget as soon as I start the next book.

Instead of working on the languishing sweater I just pulled out my handy, dandy cone of dishcloth yarn and started another one. They are simple, mindless knits. And make great "little something" gifts to have on hand. My version of this pattern is available here for free.

Two Shawls
So this is the blocking pile (well, what I could find). Two shawls that need blocked. I bet they will be gorgeous! I think I have a couple of cowls that need blocked as well. I usually have a blocking marathon, needs to happen soon.

This is my KCCO and Yarnalong post for this week.

Where have I been?

Urban Lace

I haven't knit much in the last 2 months. Finally started a scarf. Fun easy knit! I love the colors of this yarn, it feels like fall!

I have been reading a bunch of trash novels.  Simple easy reads that you forget as soon as you start the next one. Maybe up next will be a heavier read.  We will see.

I am linking to WIP, KCCO and yarn along.
