FOs :)

I spent a fair amount of time knitting the last week and especially this weekend and I have some loverly stuff to show for it :)

This is a dishcloth I made for a dishcloth exchange. It's Bernat CottonTots in color sweet green. My recipient has a light mint green kitchen, and that's pretty much exactly how I would describe this color :) I like the stitch pattern I chose. It was mailed off to her today - I hope she loves it!

This is a ridiculously easy knit scarf for my sister for Christmas. I got the yarn, Crystal Palace's Kiddo in color Violet, in the discount bin at my LYS when they were going out of business. It is her favorite colors...purple and green...and it is ridiculously soft. It was just plain ol' knit stitch on really large needles (size 17's I think) so it's loose and soft and warm and delicious. I think she's going to adore it :)

And finally, the grand prize of things I've knit thus far, my cabled purse. I've been participating in a knit purse swap for the last few months and this is what I'm sending to my secret pal!!! I am SOOOOO proud of this bag :) I love the first picture; you can see the cable definition really well there...but it's actually the color of the second picture...medium dark grey. I can't remember the name of the yarn off the top of my head, I'll post it later :)

The purse was supposed to be mailed on the 15th, lol. Oh well, it's a bit late, but I think it's worth it :) I hope she LOVES it as much as I do.... I am going to have to make another one for myself, lol :D :D :D

Next up? A few more dishcloths for christmas presents, a scarf for my mother and finishing spinning a skein of alpaca for my Aunt :)
