Contrast this with the Turtle Butt pattern
It's the real deal! This guy was a little too shy to come out of his shell

Cute dish/washcloths
I found the link while digging through the stash busters sticky in the pattern central: the lettering can be skipped or reworded as you like.

Thought it was nice to have multiple patterns on the same page.

Annnd... Alphabet squares. Could be cute dishcloths too.

I got a request for "There's no place like 127.0.0" or a similar number, I never remember what it is.

LOL! That's great, GG. I would have never thought of using my IP for home in that saying.

I didn't think it up, Charlotte. My geeky DS asked for a wall hanging. I'll have to get on it soon. I think the books I have from the library will help. I have Mosaic Knitting and another about color knitting.

Kudos to your clever, geeky DS for coming up with it! It would look neat to combine the old fashioned sampler look with the new dangled techno speak. Just a thought.

I just finished one of the alphabet squares as a dishcloth - note to self: variegated yarns don't work well with a purl bump design. Live and learn, and wipe the floors with the failures.

The combo of "the old fashioned sampler look with the new dangled techno speak" is what my son has in mind, I do believe. I think you and I are on the same wavelength here.

I the look. Well, the idea of it, which I am certain you will bring to fruition in a most creative fashion. Looking forward to the pics of the FO.
