little things

Hello, blogland! Still here, a-knitting and a-dyeing. I just finished the cutest dang baby girl sweater ever, and couldn't wait to show it off.

The pattern is Boheme, a free pattern on Ravelry. I used about 1.5 skeins of Stitchjones Dyepot Worsted in Tiffany, and made the 18 months size. Everything about this pattern is a winner - the no-fuss garter stitch raglan yoke, tulip lace stitch and picot bind-off. Hmm, I hear some pink Encore in my stash calling to me...

I recently unearthed my small stash of dishcloth cotton yarn, so I'm now on a warshrag knitting jag - rediscovering the joy of knitting dishcloths! Here are a couple.

Top: "Squidge Cloth" made with Classic Elite Flash marled cotton mercerized, which was a freebie I picked up from the swap table at a spin-in. Super easy, and I just finished another one in red. Bottom: "Windmill" in Sugar & Cream Twists. I especially like this one, for its cool resemblance to the shuriken or "ninja star". Both patterns are free on Ravelry. My goal is to make a bunch and put them away for Michelle.

Proud Parent dept.

Speaking of Ms. Michelle, she has made the President's List again at Portland Community College for winter quarter with a 4.0! Her reward is that tomorrow, she will fly down to her mecca, L.A. for a couple of days. Her dad is there on business until Friday evening, so it's not like she will be completely unchaperoned. And who knows, maybe she will get discovered and become the next Lady Gaga...

You are so talented.
Lurve the sweater! The colour is gorgeous! I love making dishcloths too! Yours are too cool.

Way to go Michelle!!! Yay!!
