New Designs And Some Down Time

I am still alive but I have been one of those bad bloggers...so long since I did a "real" post. I've off for the past week so you would think I have oodles of free time....rofl....yeah right! My sister, brother-in-law and nephew went to the beach for a week. She has called almost every day to check in ....they're having an awesome time. Instead of taking it easy myself...it seems like there so much to do and so little time to do it. We've gotten some major "not so spring" cleaning clean done around here and I've been trying to get some new designs finished and posted. This is one my little down time projects. I had seen it before and mentally tagged it for my "to-do" list but just never got back around to it. It was the KAL for the Monthly Dishcloths group. I almost didn't finish it since I wrongly assumed it was a feather and fan cloth and didn't want to do one. Once I saw others posting about it, I had to jump in finish mine. I knitted mine on size 7 needles but the pattern calls for 8. Another one of my many "DUH" moments. It turned out too small...but still so cute. This is going to be a pattern I repeat many times over for Christmas presents. Every kitchen should have one. This is Sugar & Cream....I think it was Pretty Pastels...not really sure....sorry.



Here is one my Halloween designs. Meet Frank...he is serious about this dish washing business. lol He can be found on my other site as well as this next "gentleman"...

Meet the Grime Reaper. Death to all the dirty dishes! Your time has come! If you're interested in purchasing these....there are here...
Thanks for coming back to visit even though I have been so bad about updating. I will certainly try not to be so quiet in the future. I finally feel like I may be getting somewhat caught up with all my projects. I still have two to knit up and double check. They are Christmas presents for a cousin. Since he has no interest whatsoever in reading my blog, I will post them as freebies.
Hope all is well with everyone...and if you haven't checked out Aunt Kathy's blog in a while (or ever for that matter), pay her a visit soon. She will be starting another contest on Oct. 1st. She's a wonderful talented lady with a big heart. You'll love her. Here's her blog addy if you'd like to meet her. http://gimpykatk.blogspot.com/
