I finished up two dishcloths for my DIL who fell in love with the one I gave her during my last visit.
She said she uses it, then washes it really quick so she can use it again! I was happy to know I was giving her something she really likes and can use :*)
I also got quite a lot done on my Sugar and Cream Cowl. (Click on the name to see it or find the pattern on Ravelry) This is a fun project! It has been years since I worked a cable stitch, and there are eight each front and back cables on this cowl, so I had a ball playing with cables! I still have quite a ways to go, and I'm enjoying every stitch :*) This is the yarn I'm using...
I realized the other day that it is the same yarn I used for the Hisbuscus socks :*) It has a nice soft feel, as well as a denseness that I like. I think it will make a lovely soft cowl.

Next week is the Dreambird KAL at the Knaughty Knitter in Murfreesboro, and I'm really looking forward to going with a couple of my friends! You can find this pattern on Ravelry by clicking HERE if you are interested in making one yourself, perhaps in the KAL that will be going on in August with Judy and Denise. They both have information on the KAL in the sidbars of their blogs - you can go there by clicking on their names.
There is one possible cloud on the horizon, though, that might keep me from getting to take part in this KAL. My daughter in Savannah TN has been pretty sick the last few days, and they are telling her she needs to see a specialist for a kidney stone - the size of a lima bean! YIKES!!! I am traveling back to her house tomorrow (Friday) to see how she is doing with my own eyes and to help her make some decisions. Hopefully I will be able to come home early in the week but we will have to see how things go with her.
Are you working on a fun yarn project?
If so, please share it at Judy's Patchwork Times!
Hugs & Blessings
