~*~*~*~ My Finished KAL (knit-a-long) Photos!! ~*~*~*~
Progress Pics of Our Monthly Mystery Dishcloth Knit-A-Long
in Rachel's Knitting Room for the Month of April!
Big Thanks go out to my very dear friend, Marilyn Wallace for creating and designing another great pattern for our group! Here are my daily photos of our last monthly KAL that we did for the month of April :o)

Day #1 of our KAL! Casted on with variegated Baby Pastels!

Day #2 of our KAL! Ooooo! I got to change colours today!! I chose the Baby Green to match with the variegated Baby Pastels.

Day #3 of our KAL! I can see some letters now....hmmm....
Also, take note of the Change of Knitting Needle...yup, I went and broke another needle, just blew the tip right off of my brand new beautiful purple Lion Brand needle...and this was the second time for that needle...I'm thinking there is a defect in it...they're a funny needle too...they have sort of an inner core to them, much like a carrot has...LOL! Wish I could take them back now, but I've already had them through the pencil sharpener to try and fix them up in a hurry...LOL!

Days #4 and #5 of our KAL! Got too excited...had to do two days in a row! I can see what it says now :o) Love it! Got to change back to the variegated Baby Pastels though, which I thought was looking real good now!

Day #6 of our KAL! Okay, here we are at the end! Now ususally when I post finished pics of my dishcloths, I NEVER post the "before being blocked" pics cuz, well, it's sort of like seeing me without my makeup on in the can tell what it is, but it looks like it could use some spruce'n up...LOL!
So I now present you with the finshed product....
Drum Roll Please....

Pretty nice, ey? I LOVE the finished product! Thank you so much Marilyn for such a cute and versatile pattern! Don't you think this would make a wonderful cloth for babies?...Welcome to the World little one. Or how about a Welcome to the Neighbourhood for a friendly and neighbourly gesture? There are so many wonderful ways to use this pattern! I even had the idea of doing more of our Miniature knitting with pins and crochet cotton thread to make a wonderful little "Welcome" door mat for a little girl's neat would that be? What are some of your suggestions for this pattern? How would you choose to use it? Drop me a comment and let me know, I'd LOVE to hear all your ideas too!!
If you think you would be interested in participating in a Group Knit-A-Long with us, please feel free to join us, cuz we'd love to have you!! Our next Mystery Dishcloth Knit-A-Long Begins Monday, May 19, 2008 and it's going to be a GORGEOUS one, just in time for SPRING! I promise, you're gonna LOVE this one!
