Ball Band Dishcloth - Completed

Ballband Dishcloth up close

Some people knit when times are stressful but not me! I stop knitting until things are back to normal. After Thanksgiving, I decided to complete the one project that everyone else in the world seems to have completed. The ball band dishcloth! I used the pattern from my Mason Dixon Knitting book. The yarn is Sugar 'n Cream in Westport and Cornflower.

November Monthly Knitted Dishcloth - Completed

First off, hello to everyone visiting from the Knitting Blogs web ring! I've been reading blogs on the ring for over a year now and I'm so excited to be part of it.

I finished up the November 1st Monthly KnitAlong Dishcloth. If you can't make out my poor picture. It is a turkey! And the beads..I don't know, I just wanted to throw them in the picture, too.

Backpack - started

Not much knitting news to report but I have started this backpack several times in the last week.
Knit It! Backpack

The pattern is from the fall 2006 issue of Knit It!. After much frogging and throwing away of Caron Boucle yarn, I finally discovered the problem was due to my needles and not the yarn. My not-so-pointy Denise Knitting Needles have the perfect tip for working with this yarn. While I prefer the pointy tips of the Boyle Needles, they do not love this yarn so Denise Knitting Needles it will be!
