Well I have finished my Ballband dishcloth. I made 2 more but made them a little smaller. I really enjoyed knitting this pattern and love how quick it knits up. However, the back of the dishcloth just isn’t pretty at all, and no one ever tells you that…LOL Here are some photo’s of the ones I knitted.
Here is the link to the pattern I used… Ballband Dishcloth.

As I was reading one of my fav blogs… Smariek Knits I happened upon this absolutely adorable dishcloth called Embossed Turtle! Of course after just having visited my daughter in Florida and their turtle “Spaz” I just had to knit this in his honor.
So, without further ado I give you spaz immortalized in cotton!

We made it safely back home and had a wonderful visit with our daughter, Jennifer in
St. Petersburg, Florida this past week.
I stayed busy on the way down with my knitting and crochet. I finished Brea except I have to purchase the handle and sew the lining. I will post pictures of it when I am done. I have to get my serger fixed first as I sewed over a pin and now it won’t sew. Ugh!
This is the crocheted blue purse cover that I made on the drive to Florida. The small pouch I finished on the way home with my leftover yarn from the blue and black purse cover. I was going to knit on my Something Red sweater and realized that I had forgot to take the size 7 Knit Picks Option needles I needed to work on it, so thus the little tapestry crocheted pouch.
The Little Pleated Skirt that I had knitted for Jennifer fit perfectly and she loved it. I did have to crochet a little edge at the top to run a small crocheted cord through so that it wouldn’t fall off. It was the perfect solution!

Since it fit her so well and she really liked it, I am going to knit her a green one. Here she is wearing it out to dinner last Friday evening for her birthday. The guy with her is her boyfriend Sean.
I gave Jennifer a refresher course on her knitting and also taught her to crochet. I’m so proud! LOL
