Misc. Knitting

This dishcloth is from the Yahoo Group Knit Dishcloths. It is their KAL from March 22nd. I don't seem to be able to keep current with these KALs but I find them fun just the same :o)

Started: 4/13/10
Finished: 4/25/10
Needles: US5
Yarn: Lion Brand Cotton
Color: 298 Sherbert Swirl
Lot: 7698
The top photo shows the detail of this cloth much better, but this one shows the color. The color seems a bit washed out - in person it is just a wee bit brighter.

Remember the "monkey" syndrome???? Well, here it is in action. We were in Placerville for part of spring break. It was our "home base" for a family gold rush trip - such a blast. Anyway, there was a very cute yarn store there that I found I HAD to visit. The two oldest girls went with me - they seem to be catching the bug. They fell in love with this yarn - the sample scarf hanging in front of the yarn had nothing whatsoever to do with it!! The above is 2 balls knitted up of Frivola. This one is for DD#2.
This colorway is for DD#1.
The above ball of yarn looks kind of blah. I saw the sample scarf being knit at the yarn store. It is quite striking!
My favorite pair of jeans "sprang" a hole after being caught on the metal door of our dog crate. I found these cute patches at JoAnn's and now these pants are even more my favorites.
The downside to cute patches on cute jeans?? The girls want me to take them "patch" shopping so we can put patches on their jeans with non-existent holes!

What a neat idea for the patches. I'll have to remember that one!

Your knitted dishcloth is really pretty.
