I like to move things around, for example I am always rearanging DD & DS’s rooms (even when they don’t know about it).  So I feel that I needed a change with my blog.  What do you think of the new look?

This is the finished Pinwheel dishcloth, the pattern is from patternsforputzes.  Then because I remembered how much I enjoy knitting dishcloths I started on a lacy round cloth you can find the pattern here.

Coffee Swap

I really enjoyed the Knitters Coffee Swap, this is the first one that I participated in, I think I will definitely do another one.  My swap partner swapgoodies.jpgAmy sent some wonderful things. Click on the picture for larger view.  But there are biscotti, cookies, 2 large bags of coffee, and 2 small bags, some dragonfly stitch markers and a yarn ball.  She also sent a mug (not in picture). 

 Thanks again Amy, I love everything.  Now I just  need to decide on what to make with the yummy yarn.  I am thinking scarf, but not quite sure yet.

Long time no post


Coffee Swap 3 is nearing the end.  I just finally put my swap partner Amy’s package off today.  Amy if you would like a peek here it is.  I hope you enjoy the goodies.


 After much looking and pattern tring I have finally found a sweater for DD here is the start.I am using TLC Cotton Plus in Hot Pink, I found the patter at freepatterns.com.  I looks as though it will knit up fairly quickly. 


pinwheeldishcloth.jpgI can’t even tell you the last time I knit a dishcloth.  I found this pattern while raverly surfing the other day so I though I would give it a run.  I don’t remember the color of the yarn as I seem to have misplaced the band.  But I like the pattern and it goes fast.
