Yes, I do still knit!

I thought I'd give a quick update on what and how far I've been knitting. I have almost finished Fetching (fingerless mitts). All I need to do is knit the thumb holes. I worked on this on the Saturday get together with one lady from the SCC knit group.

I finally picked up the socks again after having let them sit for almost a month! I had dropped a stitch and the stitch fell a couple of rows. I was able to pickup the stitch but the stitches still looked wonky and bigger than normal. So I tinked (knit backwards) for 2 or 3 rounds then started knitting forward. I went to a Vancouver meetup on Sunday and I knit on the sock for a hour or so and I have just started the toe decreases. I'm going to another SCC knitting night tonight and I plan on finishing the socks then.

I'm looking forward to starting my first sweater! I want to knit Green Gable. I haven't bought the pattern or the yarn yet. I would not let myself buy it until Fetching and the socks are finished first. Also up on the to-be-knit list is the pinwheel blanket. My edging will be different then the one in the link picture. I have a couple of 50% off coupons from Micheals that I will be using to buy the yarn for it. I'm heading there after work today.

I finished the dishclothes below sometime last month, it just took me awhile to photograph and post about them.

Ooo you're ambitious! Do you have those dishcloths on your Ravelry account? I like the pink-ish one.

Hi Julia!
What kind of yarn did you use on the pink dish cloth?
