In the latest contest for the Dog Days of Summer Dishcloth Swap, I am to post a photo of something that I have made of which I am particularly proud. I would like to put up a pic of the dd, but have reasons not to do so (I don't know all of you people who drop by the blog, for one). However, this spring I made this:
totally from scratch. That is, I designed it out of my wee noggin, and even got the pattern published in MagKnits (Reduce Reuse Recycle). I use it as my summer knitting/everything tote. The dd is also seriously fond of the latest thing I made for MagKnits, but since that pattern doesn't come out for two more weeks you'll just have to be content knowing that it's something a dd would wear. ;)
I have a serious love affair with tote bags. This is why I'm participating in the International Tote Exchange IV - and there are a bunch which I have coveted (but have not, to date, received), including the River Tote that Cass did for her partner Bekka (turnabout is fair play, Cass, me love, and won't you post the pattern that you did? or at least send it to just me?):
Also the one that "Austy's Mum" did. And there are two - Candyapple89's and Aura's - that have similar stitch patterns that I would love to do (and have yarn for, even!). And given how much sari silk yarn I have it should be not surprise you that I covet Unbiased...
As for washcloth patterns, I love the "Garterlac!" washcloth (found on a Swap-Bot partner's LiveJournal page), but am not confident in my ability to do entrelac. At the moment I'm casting on for a log cabin dishcloth - wish me luck!
