Braden is busy this month so I'm posting a May KAL!

Spring is finally here for most of us in the northern hemisphere! I thought that this month we could make something in beautiful and flowery in honor of spring. You might even consider making something for Mother's Day. Here's a few ideas to get you started.

Spring Dishcloths/Facecloths

Jan! :waving:

Perfect for Springing into Spring! :cheering:

Thanks for all the great links! Wonderful!

Gotta shut down the 'puter now. :pout: DH is waiting for me to wrap up and surrend the 'puter to the electronics crate! He is loading the truck with dog crates and 'stuff' crates as I type these words! :eyebrow: He puts the electronics crate last, on the 2nd tier of crate so it doesn't get 'road heat' as we drive!

Bye! Have fun for this SPRINGY KAL!!!

I like the links too, Jan! :)

I have some links for knitted flowers saved on my computer, but I've never tried any of them. I need to buckle down and just DO it!

Here is a pansy pattern I found:
(I really want to try that one.)

I finished the Lacy Butterfly Wash Cloth today and have already used it when I had a shower with my two year old daughter. she likes to let it get full of water then try and such it dry.

Here is a picture of the cloth. sorry for the poor quality. had to use my mobile, can't find the camera charger.

Thanks guys, I made two cloths yesterday this one and one for my son's teacher. Was a welcomed break from the Hemlock. I will definitely be making more of these. In fact my 13 year old daughter have already put in an order for one.

I really like these little wash cloths patterns. I'm thinking that I will keep looking for more patterns with the images on and then make enough for a blanket.
