I totally bought yarn.

I totally just bought this yarn from a seller on Ravelry, and now I'm looking for just the right sweater pattern. I'm thinking maybe the Shalom cardigan. Can't wait for this beautiful stuff to arrive!

Swap cloths

These are the cloths I knitted for a dishcloth swap. Aren't they pretty? It is the Ball Band cloth that was made popular in the first Mason-Dixon knitting book. I will have to make some of these for myself and for gifts as well. I thought the pattern was easy and fun!

Ball Band Cloth

I'm sure some of you have knitted, or at least seen, the Ball Band dishcloth that was featured in the first Mason Dixon Knitting book. Here is my first attempt at knitting one. I'm participating in a cloth swap on one of my email lists and thought it would be a good choice. Cloths are small enough that you can practice a new skill or technique without investing too much time (or yarn!). I hope my partner likes the colors I've chosen ... I think they look good together!


... this has been a QuietStorm production, dahling ...
