I have a lot to share this week! Over the weekend, I finished a small knitting project and more bee blocks.
Back in February, Rachel encouraged me to knit a dishcloth. For some reason, I skipped that particular rite of passage when I learned to knit, FIVE years ago. Wow, I just realized that's how long I've been knitting.
I finally sat down to finish this little ballband washcloth over the weekend, and I love it! It's no secret that the Mason-Dixon pattern is a winner (it's been knit almost 8000 times on ravelry!).
I used KnitPicks Dishie cotton yarn, in Jay and Linen, about half a ball of each. I bought some additional colors of the yarn, so I expect to knit a few more of these.
I just love the texture!
So, my other weekend progress was working on bee blocks for the month.
In the Wonky Bee this month, Amanda asked for 14" bear paw blocks, in her favorite colors. I was planning to just make the large portion a single print, but then Melissa upped the ante for all of us with her blocks. They were so fun to make! I've been working on organizing my stash, so I pulled a group of scraps to use.
Over the past couple of weeks, I've been working on the stash, and I have all of my half-yards together and sorted by color now. This new storage unit was purchased at Target, and was a little smaller than I envisioned, but I think it will work well for the purpose.
I also have all yardage together now (in the four top left bins). I've still got some sorting to do, but my fabric is a lot more accessible now.
Elliott and I went to visit his parents this weekend, so later this week I'll share some new Oliver pictures, as well as a special wedding present I received. And, I might have wedding pictures in my possession!
