Phew! A few finished projects, at last!
First up is the dishcloth, the usual plain pattern, which I much prefer (to knit and use).
The challenge here was to knit the thing! I've been thinking about knitting it for months. The yarn is Anchor Magic, a gently striping cotton. OK, but my favourite yarn for dishcloths is Rowan's Handknit DK Cotton. I'm starting to regret using most of my stash up on a crochet blanket!
This little item qualifies for the green eventhome, and purple events eventskein and eventstash!
The second FO is the From Russia with Love Cowl, It's a simple mosaic pattern. I haven't blocked it (probably won't but will wash and lay flat this weekend, to even out the stitches). I haven't managed to get an outdoor shot either! But at least the purple doesn't look as pink as it does at home under tungsten lights! The colours are purple and a light lime, though the lime looks washed out in these shots.
The yarn is Biggan Wool dk, the last two balls in stash! I gave a lot to a friend who was crocheting blankets, and some to my niece. Glad I kept these two they're ideal for this pattern.
Another shot of the ciwl. It looks quite light, close up, but actually overall looks purple.
This is entered in the green eventcowl, and purple eventstash and eventcolorwork!
