It should prove to be a nifty project. Can't wait to see it, GG!

Well, it's like this, Claire and Charlotte. I have 2 pr. of socks OTN that I must finish so I can start some for me, and it's time to start thinking about sewing Xmas PJs. This project will have to wait a while. I still haven't had a chance to really get into my library books on color and mosaic knitting. My must do list is too too too long. I guess I must not have too much of a problem with it or I wouldn't keep adding to it.

How long before you need to turn in those library books? Methinks you may need an extension on them

Me thinks so too. They're due sometime next month. They don't seem to be in high demand so maybe I'll be able to renew them. I wish I could get them on an ereader but I don't think so.

Different dish cloth
White Birch Cloth
Saw this, thought it was cool. I've not yet worked from a chart, might have to print this out and give it a try!

What a pretty stitch pattern and dishcloth, Janis! Enjoy the expedition into reading charts.

Feather and fan
When I started knitting, I wanted to make a feather and fan dishcloth so badly. I had so many problems with it!! Well, since Friday night I've cast on and finished 2 of them. Here's the 2nd one, I forgot to get pics of the first before I gave it away. The first was just off white, done with sugar and cream cotton on size 6 needles. This one was done on size 8. The next will be done on size 7.

Janis, that's beautiful! It's a great opportunity to see which size needles you like with a pattern too.
