One Skein Secret Pal & China Girl

Here is a photo of the One Skein project I made for my Secret Pal. Susan from Honolulu, HI was my secret pal and I'm sending this gift and some other goodies her way on Monday. I also thought I'd share a photo of my girl China, who helped get plenty of cat fur into the knitting process.

September mid-month KAL completed

This was the September mid-month KAL dishcloth. I used size 8 needles and GOA, a cotton-poly blend from Muench.

Monthly Dishcloth - September Knit-A-Long

Just finished up my dishcloth from the September KAL with Monthly Dishcloths Yahoo Group. It was made with Nashua Handknits Cilantro. This fiber is 70% cotton and 30% polyester. It's nice and soft, and has some stretch to it. This was my first KAL with this group. Each day for one week, we receive 7 rows of the pattern. At the end of the seven days, hopefully you have a dishcloth with a pattern that is fairly recognizable. I had a little trouble. Shown here, the dishcloth was knit from the bottom up. I actually thought it might have been a map of the US (at least on the first day, because I thought the stem was Florida. But then on the second day I realized I was missing Texas. I really didn't realize that it was an Oak Leaf until Day 6.
