Joining was not easy!
The second project from the book I made is a hand towel. I liked the idea, but changed the pattern and size. The Euroflax color here is called Moss Lake and the pattern (from B. Walker's book) is called ripples. Very fitting! This is finished already and will be my fathers day present. He doesn't need another scarf. Oh, I wanted to say, that knitting with this linen yarn is not fun. After washing, drying and ironing it was softer, but for my sensible skin still too rough. My dad will like it. ;o)
Last shot of my first dishcloth.This Log Cabin is my long term project or TV project if you will. I do not watch a lot of TV. This will be a very big square. Right now it's 28" X 28". I did NOT got out and buy this yarn especially for a Log Cabin. I would have liked to have more lighter colors but I'll have to life with this. It's already big in my lap but so tiny in our driveway! ;o)
Thanks to Cristina's patience I'm finally able to show my Mason Dixon contributaion to this KAL. It's the first KAL I've joined (been knitting since November '05).
