With thanks to Robin I figured out what I was doing wrong with my sweater. We're back on track now.
That's actual stockinette there...
Also, over at Yarn Miracle there's a little contest of who has the most hand knit dishrags. I know I won't win, but here are all of mine that live here. Well, except the one at the sink.
Last summer was the Summer of Dishcloths. I made oodles of them all for gifts. But now, I have 11 living with me. 10 are pictured here.
Finally, I bring you my friend, Big Fat Groundhog. There are two living in my woods but he's my favorite. All that rusty brown fur...
However I think he'd like it only slightly more than Bartholamew if I got his tummy. I do know that this is Big Fat Groundhog because the other one I saw is much smaller and darker.
I'd like to thank everyone for nice comments about my package to my aunt and the encouraging comments on my sweater. I swear, knitters are just great people!
