Finishing up!

Ohhhh weeee! We got new colours of dishcloth cotton at work and I'm super excited. They are also on sale this week, double bonus. As I didn't work the weekend I missed the first two days of the sale and when I went in monday there were only 2 skeins of the green varg. that I really wanted. I quickly snapped those up as well as a few others. I can't wait to knock off a few different dishcloths with these, I've been in dishcloth mode for the past few weeks now, all I can seem to think about. Click on the picture to get a better idea of the colourways.
Nanny's socks did NOT get completed for Saturday when I went to see her. Procrastination is my only excuse, I picked up butterfly and had no desire at that time to knit socks at all. I did get her to try the one on that I had finished and it fits perfectly so I had the second one ready and waiting for when they arrived today. Here she is with her new "toasty" socks on as she calls them.
Later in the afternoon Moose and I lounged on the deck for awhile in the new loungers Moose came home with one night after getting groceries. I must admit that they are super comfy, but not what I expected when he went for FOOD. I worked on the finishing touches of a dishcloth for one of the girls at work. She brought me in some of her strawberry jam so I said I'd make her a few dishcloths.
This is a pattern I've had for ages for this cute little sweater vest dishcloth made out of one of the new colourways I got from work. Her kitchen is done in sunflowers so it should match nicely.
Is this not the cutest dishcloth ever????? Mum says its too nice to wash dishes with :)
Moose wants one too so I guess I'll be casting on for another one. He says they're cool!

I think it's great that you made socks for your grandmother, and she certainly looks like she's enjoying them. That sweater cloth is too cute!

Grandma looks like she's enjoying your socks. You should see what my husband brings back from garage sales. Love the colors in the wool.

The dishcloth cotton is super yummy. We don't have anything like that in the UK! ;-( And that sweater dishcloth is so cool! I love it! It does look too nice to wash up with though.

Your dish cloth is cute! Love the idea of a sweater as a dish cloth.
