April Knit-Along
Tuesday, April 3, 2007
The wonderful Hattie is heading up the April Showers Knit-Along. This gives me the opportunity to finally knit up some washcloths and bathroom stuff. I hope around Thanksgiving someone picks to do something with kitchen patterns. It's going to be the only way I get motivated into making that oven mitt Grim has been asking for. -=giggle=- So I started on one of the wash cloths lastnight. Here's how it's looking so far...

And it's done with this yarn..

So that's the first one and then I am going to cast on a couple more and call it quits. I did not get to Knitting Group tonight. I had a doctor appointment and to be honest I was too tired to move. I shouldn't even be up now but I desperately wanted some relax time. So I haven't been working on my other projects. I needed a break from the shawl. The poncho I haven't been able to evenly pick up stitches and the gloves while I now know how to pick up stitches aren't cooperating. Anyways, here's the yarn for the other wash clothes.

That's pretty much it I believe. I am very interested to see if my SP ever posts the things I got for her. I don't know why I am soo grrr about the fact she hasn't yet but she hasn't. -=shrugs=- Call me weird, but she shows off everyone elses stuff (she's in a bunch of swaps I guess) but not mine. Makes me think she may not appreciate what I got her as much as she says. Or maybe I am just being too tempramental. I am known for that sometimes. -=giggle=-

Anyways, TTFN.

    Those are great colors! I can't wait to see them all. :)

    I'm sure she'll post about your stuff. Maybe she's just taking a bit longer to do it.

    Wow, I can see how you'd feel upset. But you never know, she might be really busy or something.

    The colors are awesome by the way! :D

    I love your washcloths! I need to make some more 'cause I promised my family I would. They (the washcloths) are so great. Anyway. I really like the idea of a kitchen stuff knit-along. Hmmm...You have the little hamster in my brain running on his wheel...
