Sunny days are here again!


The woolly cable scarf is done. And wonderful. It was fun and I love it. I love the colors, loved the stitches, it knit fast and I'm happy with the finished project. But I do remember knitting on it on a couple of warm days towards the end and it was starting to feel a little sticky. So... onto something a little drier, a little sunnier.


These are the first 2 of what I'm sure will be many Buttonband Dishcloths from the Mason Dixon knitting book. The yarn is the great stuff I ordered from Elmore Pisgah a few weeks ago, and what can I say? The colors are like candy, they just leap right off the needles. The pattern was fast and easy and enjoyable. And something interesting to note-the pattern is exactly the same as the one on the paper band on the Peaches and Creme yarn. While I love the Mason Dixon book and think there's something in it for everyone, it's good to know too-if you don't want to commit to the whole book, just pick up a ball of this yarn and the pattern is right there.

Psst....that's why it's called the ball band dishcloth ;).

LOVE the colors. I don't know what it is about that orange/yellow/white cotton that makes me want to buy 10 skeins at once, but I love it. Really pretty scarf too.

Great colours for your dishcloth. Love the scarf too! It looks so soft and warm.

I knew that the Ballband Dishcloth was an old one, but the Mason Dixon book is a really good read which is why I bought it.
