First up is the Romantique Sampler by Angie Designer. This is a SAL but you have to complete each portion of the pattern before you receive the next portion. I have the first two sections, but have only worked on section one so far. Above is a photo of how it looked earlier this week.
Here it is without the backstitching....
And here is section one complete - what a difference backstitching makes!! I love taking before and after shots of backstitching.
Some knitting got done - the Mid Month Dishcloth for my Dishcloth Group. This one is called Freedom. I started this one in the two colors called for, but decided that there wasn't enough contrast between them so switched out the green for this ombre.
Yarn: Lily Sugar'n Cream
Color: 01105 Country Blue and
00165 Daisy Ombre
I love this dishcloth pattern. It was easy to knit up and the effect is very striking.
It keeps me honest - I know I need to knit at least 7 so I keep at it. This week there are only 8 because I was so distracted with other projects! And I don't anticipate next week being much better :o) I seem to be easily distracted............
