Some Fo's

It certainly took long enough - here is Uniscarfity blocking in the sun. (well, it was in the sun earlier)

After FINALLY finishing the Endless Scarf, I cast on for the new pattern at FunDishCloth KAL.


It was a quick easy pattern - a welcome treat after the tedious boredom of the ES. These were so fast to knit up - one in the morning, one in the afternoon. Excellent knitting for Rome and Season 2 of the Sopranos (finally in @ the library).


The yarn is Peaches & Cream in an unknown colourway (ball band disappeared prior to posting!) that was gifted to me from the author of Unravellings.


This is the first time I have used Peaches & Cream cotton - it seems like a nice thirsty yarn, perfect for a dishcloth. Slowly, slowly there will be no more storebought dishcloths here. Then...the face cloths are next to go!

I saw Zodiac this weekend. It was very long - but maintained the tension and interest throughout. Pretty high praise, since I had already seen the documentary on A&E last year. Robert Downey Jr. does brilliant work - there are quite a few famous to familiar faces in this film. I would recommend the film without a soda! I love Dennis Fincher's films (maybe not Panic Room so much...)

I also got out in the garden to cut back some old growth and dead stalks and check on what is growing. Looks like 2 of the 5 raspberry canes I planted last year have survived the winter. 1 is really thriving. Could have some better fruit this year! Yum.

Thanks for all the congrats for my brother - really we don't know who to be congratulating. His fiance is the best woman - we are all so happy!

The washcloths look great, and yes, I also found Peaches 'n Creme to be a much nicer dishcloth yarn than I was used to...

and how exciting for you guys, and for your brother! Is the wedding soon? Will there be enough time for a knitted gift???? Inquiring minds want to know...

Yay for finishing the scarf, it looks awesome! And I really love those washcloths, what a pretty pattern - they seem to be perfect indeed with this yarn that you were using!
