Twisted Strands Episode 33: Comfort

Welcome to Episode 33 “Comfort”
We are doing a knit and crochet along in the group, Twisted Strands! This time it is a really short one, a dishcloth, and you can pick whatever dishcloth/washcloth design you want! Come join us!

On the kneedles
Diamond Vest for yo-sd by Marika Tobak mystery gift fingering weight yarn and size 1 (2.5) needles.
Malcolm the Monday Monster by Rebecca Danger, in leftover Cascade 220, size 7 (4.5 mm)
Mablesocks, a pattern by Sadie Ruin (from Yarnivore) with Pagewood Farms Alyeska yarn.
Japanese Garden Shawl by Wendy Johnson, using size 5 (3.75 mm) needles. Using Wollmeise Raku-Regenbogen.
Reverse-Bloom Flower Washcloth by Cindy Taylor, using light green cotton chenille from Crystal Palace.

Fresh off the needles!
Nothing new, sadly.

Love of Knitting Fall 2011.
I have so many people to thank for all the kind words and virtual hugs given to me after the death of my beloved cat Daisy. It means so much to me.

Lisa Woynowski designs toys, and her designs are either knit or crochet and they are adorable! You can find her designs in her ravelry store , or at her : etsy store here. She was kind enough to send me some patterns, a cute turkey named Teeves Turkey, and one called Shawn the Pickup Truck, which I think is really cool.
