Surrounded by boxes

I have spent the last few weeks unpacking boxes, in between keeping the kids moderately fed, happy, and clean. Well, fed and happy, anyway! Not to mention working with Phoebe (our dog) and other basic life stuff.

I have been knitting dishcloths, mostly. I joined a twice monthly KAL (Knit A Long) dishcloth group in order to learn new stitches and skills in a manageable way, and so far it has been fun! I forgot to take pictures of the first 2 dishcloths before using them, and they are now faded and pretty ugly, but I will try to remember to take a pic when they are clean, at least. I love using them, though!

I have finally taken pictures of the last few completed projects - 2 dishcloths, one metered square from sock yarn, and one baby sock. I'll get them off my camera and posted soon. Really!

I also started a second metered square for blankie. I owe Shelly a huge thank you for the yarn remnants - this is going to be so much fun! Current thoughts about my blankie:
-best thing so far about getting a goodie bag full of yarn remnants is discovering wonderful yarn patterns and textures that I might not choose on my own.
-worst thing is having no idea what some of these wonderful yarns are. I found one I adore! It is so soft, with beautiful colors...and no label. And I have no idea what it might be!
-it is interesting to me how one sock yarn would be so marvelously soft and smooth feeling, and the next one very stereotypical scratchy wool.

Off to bed now!
