May KAL - SPRING!
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

Lacy Butterfly

Flower shaped

Flowers to embellish a bag or hat, etc.

Simple flower

Have fun!

Jan!

Perfect for Springing into Spring!

Thanks for all the great links! Wonderful!

Gotta shut down the 'puter now. 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! 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.)

Lacy Butterfly
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.
