I've also made another Dalek dishcloth, this time out of dishcloth yarn. I got it from Spins and Needles for £2.20, and will be able to get at least 2 more out of it. To say they'll last way longer than disposable dishcloths, I think that pretty cheap!
And now for my work in progress. I'm really proud of how this is going.
shown here that I made for the swap between me and Sarah. I liked it so much that I had to get some for me too! It's beautiful, so soft and with a lovely sheen from the silk. Easily my favourite yarn that I've used so far. This is the first complicated pattern that I've ever made! My Knitty Gritty book certainly helped a lot. There is a mitten pattern in there that I knitted up for practice first, to make sure I understood the pattern and how the thumb is made. The pattern calls for aran weight yarn, but Andes is DK weight. This isn't a problem however, as I did a gauge swatch and it came up slightly small. The pattern would have been a little too big for my hands though, so the Andes is perfect :)
Apologies to those of you who have no interest in knitting, my sewing mojo has been on holiday for a while. It's nearly home though and I might do some sewing after tea. I've also got a couple of dresses that I want to try refashioning into skirts :)
