20-minute Row

I gave this hanging towel as a house-warming gift.

Newest and greatest M-D dishcloth pattern: the Linoleum Dishcloth.

Here I am, knitting on the couch. Dodger is nearby but not in the picture.

I'm half way through chart 3 of 4. It feels like I'm very near the end, except that each 400+ stitch row takes about twenty minutes, and I'm still adding stitches. I'm glad there is no deadline. The feathery pattern is beautiful.

I've discovered a new ballband dishcloth outlet--mop covers! I made these for my friends Candyce and Andy.

I've also made a lot of progress on my Icarus Shawl. I started the fifth and last repeat of the first chart. The rows are now so long they take almost fifteen minutes each to complete!
I bought some new circular needles for this project--Addi Lace Turbos. They work great. I am loving the soft Malabrigo yarn too.
