Finally finished my September KAL's with my dishcloth group! The first was Zig Zag by Kayleen Clements which you can see here. This was a really good knit and it was really easy too. The mid-month one is Snowy Drops by Andi Worthy which I just finished yesterday and will post a pic of as soon as the batteries for the camera have recharged. I do have to admit to a mistake which I did not notice until quite a few rows later so I did (and I hang my head but I was sick with a 24 hr vomiting bug!) leave it and just kept going. I am not particularly good at unknitting especially when it involves multiple rows. But I do know what I must of done so that is a good thing at least!!! :)
This months first KAL is a round dishcloth which I have never tried before so it should be fun (hopefully) and definately something new.
In other news, Dave and I put an offer in on a house and it has been accepted. Which is good. The building and pest reports have come back good too. So we are just now waiting on the go ahead from our bank. As soon as we have that we can sign the contracts and start packing!! It is a good house, while not my dream house it is a house that checks all our boxes and will make a good investment.
Hopefully this week will finally see me roll the alpaca into managable balls, get on with the round dishcloth and get the "on circs" scarf finished!

The socks have been officially frogged. May they rest in peace.

You can just see the horrible red plastic needles I am working with, they just aren't pointy enough for all the p2tog and k2tog that are in the pattern. That's my computer table, it is a lovely old wooden table with turned legs that I have grand plans of sanding back and re-varnishing but alas it still hasn't made it that far. Perhaps one day when the pigs are flying.
I don't think I can really call this a scarf, it is a bit too short for that. It is actually meant to be short as it is (as I call it) a Tuckeriner. It tucks in to that space between your coat and your neck with out the bulkiness of a full scarf.

I sent Aunty Wilma her plain jane dishcloth, I am hoping she will actually use this one! Still haven't made one for myself. I am hoping to join a dishcloth knit-along as this maybe the one way I will get some for myself. Keeps those knitting vibes happening too.
What am I going to do about those socks?

Don't ask about those socks, I will just say see the photo below as they look JUST LIKE THAT! lol!!!
As I am trying to become a FLYgirl (http://www.flylady.com/) I am seriously going to have to make some dishclothes for myself. I have all the stuff I just need to do, as Flylady says to set out a clean dishcloth and teatowel everynight for the next day and I want nice dishclothes!!!
