Boy, it's a good thing we're making dishcloths and not something more complicated. The gymnastics is nerve wracking! I don't think I could knit something that was too intricate!

Love the AOII cloth (what's that stand for again?)
Love the red-white & blue cloth, wonder how that would work in the 'Grandma's fav.' cloth?
The mitered corner cloth I did was one I found on Ravelry as a free pattern,
"co3
k1, yo, k1, yo, k1
knit
k2 yo, k1, yo, k2
knit
continue knitting until the middle st & put a yo before & after
then when you have about 63 sts otn bind off, or if you only have a yard to 1 1/2 yards left of yarn."


It works out really pretty!

jberry16 - AOII stands for Alpha Omicron Pi. It's LBeck's daughter's sorority's Greek letters. Thanks for the compliment!



I finished another dishcloth request from LBeck. It's the Arkansas Razorback's mascot.



It was awesome watching Phelps last night! Right now I'm watching USA men's soccer vs the Netherlands and in a half hour USA men's basketball vs China is coming on!

Nathalie - I love watching the gymnastics! The men have such amazing upper body strength. How they remember those complex routines is beyond me.

Unfortunately, my excessive Olympics watching and dischcloth knitting can only be done on the weekends.

DeAnzaJig - Wow, love the hogs. You are on a roll.

I've got 5 more rows to do then I'll be finished my 2nd cloth. Once the baby goes down for her nap, I'll finish it and post some pictures.

DeAnzaJig, great job! I hear ya about watching the Olympics on the weekends. Grrr. Wish we could get paid for staying home and watching the games...supporting the US, you know.

I finished another dishcloth last night...during study breaks.

This one is called Elfin Lace. I used Sugar 'n Cream, and the color is Ecru.

That is so pretty Auburn, I would like that pattern as well if it is free.

this is the one I am working on at the moment.

CMRab you have done well, having to contend with babies. I am quite lucky my kids are 13, 7 and 2 so if I am middle row my oldest usually steps in and gets the little one out of trouble. and sometimes they just occupy themselves and we all go in the garden and they play while I knit. very nice.
