Projects for Gifts

OK, I don't know if you can see the designs in these or not. Someone email me and let me know if you can't and I'll try to take other pictures.

The yellow is a happy flower dishcloth. The red is a happy home dishcloth. Both are for my mom. I bought the patterns and am happy with them. Big cloths. Easy patterns but you definitely have to pay attention!

Then here's what else I made...

These don't take too long, thank heaven. Ally picked the colors. One is for her and the other I am giving to my mom's best friend Cil. I try to make something for her, too. It isn't a lot but it's cute. I have a pattern for a knit one from the Monthly Dishcloth KAL Yahoo group which I want to try but there are so many things I want to get to that I'm going to have to make a list. I need to buy the yarn to make Amy's hat but I haven't found the color yet. She wants something closer to a coffee color (like cafe au lait - a bit darker than the tan in the dresses) so I will have to keep looking. The scarf for me is almost done. When I cast off later tonight I will put a picture in a different post. I also want to start a scarf with the yarn I bought in NH last year and I haven't decided if I will use a different pattern or the same one I used for the rose. I admit the appeal is that it's a pretty scarf and easy pattern - 1 row repeated over and over. We'll see how I feel once I finish the rose one later.

Anyway, these were the gifts for vacation. I will post a picture of the scarf when done and then in a separate post, a list of projects I want to do (or have promised).

Oh yes, I think while I'm in NH I will make a tie blanket or two, too, if I can find the colors I want. I made just one last year and hardly did any knitting but that was because I was so sick the whole two weeks. This year I can get more crafting done. And a trip to Joann's and elsewhere to pick up crafting materials for more projects for gifts... ok... and one or two for me. :)
