Busy weekend!

I made 4 1/2 dishcloths and started on a shopping bag (although DD said she would like it to be her bag, so it will likely become hers lol)

I had bought some really fine yarn that I couldn't work with, so I decided to try and work with it in triple ply. It is actually going together quite well like that. It comprises the 1/2 of a dishcloth I have finished. My only complaint is that I think I will have to use a different pattern when I use the rest of it but I'm going to wait to see how it does in the dishwater first.

As soon as I get a chance, I'll take some pics to share.

Crocheting is my stress reliever Kim. It has been so crazy around here lately that I had to do something to get everything out of my mind.

Oh and I finished the triple strand one. It looks much better than I thought it would. Even DH commented on it - which he hardly ever does.

Well here is the picture:

I made two of the white one in the lower left corner. The one in the lower right corner is the triple strand one.

Yes, all crocheted. Smile

I tried knitting but it didn't go to well. lol I love the yarn that I used (Sugar and Cream I think it is called) and fortunately JoAnn's has it on sale right now so I'll be getting more to finish my projects for the big swap. Smile (I got your PM and I need to respond once I get home and figure out my stash Wink )

Oh yeah I bought a bunch of their yarn on sale at Michael's LOL Wink in the small and big skeins both.

I have big comes of the peaches-n-creme cotton that I really like too. Those I have been buying online, but sometimes Walmart carries some of the colors. I just wish they would carry more colors so I didn't have to pay shipping ROFL
