Dishcloths & Strozzi

Just a couple of finished dishcloths, and the beginnings of the Strozzi necklace. The peacock dishcloth was a purchased pattern from Knitwits Heaven http://knitwits-heaven.tripod.com/

The white cotton dishcloth is a pattern from Dishcloth Boutique http://www.jimsyldesign.com/~dishbout/

The Strozzi pattern can be found at the Berroco website. Instead of using Berroco Suede, I am using Katia Idea Jeans. It is a blend of 50% cotton, 35% viscose & 15% linen. It has just enough of a stretch in it to make it a nice fiber for this project. I'm enjoying working the leaves, and might use this pattern to make leaves for a future felted bag.

Wrist Warmers & Scarf with Patons SWS

I knitted this wrist warmer - scarf set on my seven-hour car ride from Long Island to Syracuse, NY. I love the new Patons SWS yarn. It's a blend of wool and soy, and works really well on bamboo needles. The scarf was made using the pattern from the Pastiche 2 Scarf/Power from Berroco. The wrist warmers were made using Delia's pattern from the Irish Hiking Scarf Knit-a-long blog. I really enjoyed the pattern for the wrist warmers. They are worked flat, and then seamed on the side. The cable work is great for a beginner, because the cables are worked on the front, right side only.

Not the greatest photo because I used the scanner, but this is my October Monthly Dishcloth KAL. I used Peaches & Creme White Cotton. Perfect cloth for a cat lover!
