Labor Day & Knitting

This is how we spent our Labor Day afternoon...well, some of us anyway. My 2 1/2 year old nephew, Killian, knows how to relax on a hot day. The temperatures weren't too bad today compared to the last few weeks. It seems like it's always hot and humid here in the South though. We didn't do any cooking out today but it was nice just the same.

I did get a little time to work on the COTW for this week. This one is called Spot On! I was a little confused at first but I think I have it figured out now. The last row of the pattern for each section threw me off a bit. It's different from other round cloths I've knitted before. I hope I'm doing it right anyway. lol
If you look closely at my needle, you'll see the curve. Poor things are overworked and starting to curve a bit from all the use. I got these on eBay and they were a great deal...not as sturdy as the Clover needles but they do the job. I haven't had one to break yet. I love my bamboo needles...don't touch metal unless I have to OR unless it's my Knitpicks Options. The only thing I've used them for so far is my Mystery Shawl (Feather & Fan) which I really need to get finished since the KAL has been over for a few weeks now. Maybe soon it will cool off and I can get around to actually wearing it. :)

Love the round cloth! I have an affinity for round dishcloths. :P

It's just after noon and only 76 degrees here! We're gonna make it. :)

I'm loving the round cloth, I'm about to head off of here to get to work on it some more..
