More ballband dishcloths. I'm trying to use up leftover Lily Sugar 'n Cream cottons, so my color choices are limited (which makes it a challenge to pair things up and not say, "Oh, well that's just fugly"):
I want to make a stack (like, a dozen) and give them to my mom for her new house in Florida.
Wisp using Noro Kureyon sock yarn:
The colors have been lining up well with the fishnet and garter sections. Also, I can fudge the numbers by a row here and there to make the colors fit. I bought blocking wires at White River Yarns and this will be the first project I use them for. I can't wait.
Meret, the February hat-of-the-month at WRY:
I know, such an exciting shot. The yarn is a handspun that I bought in Alaska last year. It's a fairly heavy worsted weight. I cast on for the Large size of Meret and knit a lot more than what you see above. After finishing the first lace repeat (about 4-5 inches in), I said, "You know what... I think this is going to be too big." I don't want another Rangoli* (a.k.a. the the steering wheel cover), so I'm going to rip it out and knit the medium size. Bonus: If there's more yarn leftover, I might make the matching fingerless gloves.
*The Rangoli wasn't a complete loss- it's a soft, round thing for Murderface to kneed and curl up on.
