Well, here is my very humble attempt at an illusion dishcloth. This cloth is from the monthly dischloth group December knit-a-long. I am finished, but I still can't quite figure out why my top border is on the back and the rocking horse is facing the wrong way!! Oh well...hopefully attempt to currently on the needles will be better. Even though it didn't turn out quite right it was still a blast! I can't wait till the 16th for the mid month kal!!!!!

Well my 13 yr old Emily did this along with me...and hers turned out right. Not to mention the horse is facing the correct direction! Check it out. This is her second official project. The first is a blue and pink ballband dishcloth from the mason dixon book! Love it!

Both of my young ladies are on the road to becoming accomplished knitters! What prestige! Hankerchief..pish posh and all that jazz! :*) ( the colors on all three of these pics are not real great but...the top cloth is sage green, middle cloth lavender, and the last is blue and pink.)

Baby Kimono Fininshed!

Well when I started this adorable baby kimono from the awesome Mason Dixon Knitting book I didn't think I could pull it off. Project #4 is a success! When it was time to bind off and continue knitting only on one sleeve I was convinced that it would turn out like the first pair of shorts I tried to sew. When I was done with shorts they had two cylinders in which to place legs but then you were in trouble because there was nothing else (not even a waistband!) But instead of being a waste of time as the shorts were, the baby kimono is finished. This was also my first attempt at the mattress stitch & seaming. Can't say that was fun, but I could not possibly leave unfinished when I was so close!!!

Oh I just had to add a pic of my ten year old daughters first handknit. The scarf is so cute on her too! After many attempts at knitting she is a success! I am so proud.
