yummy Cupcake!

Love this little knitted cupcake! it looks great on top of a birthday gift!


This was a fun cloth to make - [pattern from our KAL calendar]
tho I think next time I'd like to use a navy or black, with a self-striping cloth in a pastel color to make the *blocks* of color stand out better -
this one I knit for my aunt, who has a kitchen in black and white, with splashes of red.

My Birdie

This end-of-the-month's KAL was a picture cloth ~
a cute little bird!
~ Knit mine in mint-green yarn.

Another of Sue's [Harvest Moon ]lovely patterns, this is a little knitted Granny Square.


Another of our Dishcloth Calendar's cloths, this one created by Dione Reed, 2008.

The Whiskers Cloth -
an ingenious invention!
just keep knitting, tie on new yarn and put a nice knot ['whiskers'], keep knitting - continue!
Great way to use up all those ends of the skein that you don't want to throw out, but aren't enough to do much with.
This one, I knit with two strands of yarn, and will be especially nice as a hot-pad.

Waffle Cloth - using purl stitching, it's so easy and works up fast.
-pattern by Dione R, in last year's Dishcloth Calendar.

The rich colors in this yarn show off well in most any pattern - [this one is from one of Sue's from Harvest Moon.]


~ from a recent KAL in our group, I did mine in Lavender
[ pattern is also in last year's KAL Dishcloth Calendar ]

Square metered cloth- oh, so easy!

Waves of Love

This cloth pattern is from the March mid-month KnitALong, designed by Sue of Harvest Moon.

It was easy and fun to knit~
and I love the look of it!

Now I want to knit it, using a solid color and see if it gives a different look to the stitches/design.

Mid-March KAL cloth

Here's the progress of my cloth, so far~
[this is after finishing Day 2, row 5]

I think this is going to be a lovely dishcloth!
I wonder who the designer is?
Will it continue with this lacy-look?
hmmmm - only time and knitting will tell !!!
