I finished up the Thanksgiving Cloths with an autumn flare a couple days ago but only got around to designing the pdf. and uploading the pictures this afternoon. I'm so pleased with how they turned out. They're way too cute I can't stand it. Now I can put everything aside for the next week and start that darn Icarus. It has to be finished by Friday night, the rehearsal dinner. Yikes! Keep me in your prayers. Its going to be super lace knitting 24/7 this week. Here are some pictures of the finished Thanksgiving Cloths:
Ella's birthday was on Monday, one day this week I will try and post up some pictures of the mess we all made of her first birthday cake. It was wonderful. I'm truly amazed at how fast time goes by. All the more reason to take more pictures, more videos, and spend more time everyday with them. I'm so blessed this birthday.
After the wedding on Saturday, (if I make it, ha) I'm going to start on some Winter and Christmas Cloths that many people have been asking for. I know how holiday knitting can be. I'm quite behind myself this year. Still staring at that un-finished scarf and the un-blocked sweater. Oh, and the three balls of sock yarn that I planned for making Ella three 18month pairs for a little Socktoberfest of my own. We'll see, they should knit up pretty fast.

There are six patterns all together. I made each written pattern with a corresponding chart for the dishcloth. From the sets that I've already made, I've managed to get about 2-2½ cloths out of one ball of Lily's Sugar'n Cream Solid Yarn. Though you can use any kitchen cotton you prefer. My friends mother prefers not to use them as dish cloths, claiming that they're too pretty. Instead they've become festive coasters around the house and decoration around the dinner table for hot plates.
