I really have been knitting!

But mostly I can't show it here because I have to mail it out to my SP & OS Pal.

In the end I decided to fix the 1st SS Socky III. I just couldn't stand that loose, loose and lumpy sock. Even with a whopping 26 stitch decrease the cuff still gapes at the back - but it doesn't fall down so...there you have it.

I also made a Garterlac Dishcloth. For the first time in my life I wish I had used a striped yarn - I know. I mostly would hate to see the kind of sock I just made, and I would never in a million years buy a sock with such a pattern, but since it is handmade and it feels so good on - I am a total convert. AND when you see this pattern done in a stripe - you will know I should have used a varieagated yarn.

Perhaps next time...

Speaking of firsts - Previously I was a person who disdained handknit/crochet dishcloths. Now I love them and bought 6 more balls of cotton (and yep, they are stripey) so that I can make a collection. I want to replace all of the storebought cloths in our kitchen drawer. I am even thinking of making luxurious cloths for bath use.

What next? you ask. I really don't know.
