Dish Rag Tag

Here's a picture of what I got from Jen. An awesome dishcloth - I am not sure of the pattern she used...Jen?...a set of cute stitch markers and two skeins of yarn.

Close up shot of the fun dishcloth.

I chose to use the variegated - cause I like watching a pattern slowly emerge as I knit.

I did a very simple seed stitch pattern...nothing fancy...quick and functional...that's me.

I included some goodies and sent it on it's way to Kathi in Washington.

I also have a progress picture of my socks...

Stop over at Learn to Knit Socks. There are some awesome things happening over there....amidst much talent and squeals of delight... heels are turning...left and right... (that is almost poetic...not bad for a Math teacher) hee hee

I noticed I am at post #97 or something like that...am thinking I'll have to host my very first contest to celebrate my 100th post. Stay tuned to this channel for updates as they become available.

Hooray for contests!!! :)

I am glad you liked the stuff in the box. The pattern is one I just kind of made up. Well, that's not true, I was using the same stitch pattern as you would do for an eye of the partridge heel on a sock. :) Makes for quick knitting, all those slipped stitches.

I am excited at how fast you knit your dishcloth. And it is so beautiful too.

I just love those crazy stripes on the dishrag Jen made for you. Guess you never know what the yarn is going to do!

Was at school all day today--still haven't found that "back-to-school" mindset. Where might I have put it?!?

Way to go! Good going on getting the box out. I like the colorway you used for your dishcloth being sent out.
