knitting up a storm

I've been so busy knitting and trying to catch up with KALs (Knit-a-longs) that I have neglected my blogging. Also I have been enjoying other gals gorgeous knitting and crafting out there. This cloth is called "Dainty". It is knit in Peaches & Creme Shaded Brown. This cloth was the November Just Dishcloths KAL. Thank you Anne for the great pattern.

Whenever I get a new cotton yarn color I usually whip up a "DW" (Darrel Waltrip) washcloth to see what the colorway looks like. It's more fun than a swatch and I know what the DW pattern looks like. At the same time I get a new cloth or a gift to give! This is another beautiful Elmore-Pisgah cotton named "Oasis". It has beautiful soft peachy and smokey tones. It is much prettier than any picture can do for it. That is one of the reasons I ordered the color cards. I have to see and feel the yarn before I buy - pretty hard on-line - LOL...

This cloth was the COTW (Cloth of the Week) KAL for week November 11, 2007. This KAL is a great way to learn different techniques and try out new colors. The designers give a variety of cloth sizes and ensembles to knit with pictures before you start. I love this group! See my sidebar for KALS.
