Yardage: 75 yards

05.19.09 002
Back of dishcloth:

This is a great pattern once you get the hang of it. It's a little tricky at first, and doesn't look like it's working, but if you're careful and follow it correctly, after a couple repeats it starts to take shape! (I did have to frog and re-start once, but I got it on the second try!!)

Total yardage so far for May: 370 yards - so I earned my "Y"!

I am awaiting the final clue on my Panda Soy mystery socks. It will be posted on Friday and then I need to knit both legs. Not sure yet if this will be an additional May project or slide into June. Here's my progress after clue 2:
05.12.09 007

Clue 3 was turning the heel, which is done on both socks, but I haven't taken a picture!

Meanwhile, while I am waiting for the next clue, I decided to pick up one of my UFO's that I didn't complete during the UFO KAL! The Tofutsies socks are once again in progress...

Knit on everyone!! :-)

I love your Noro scarf. Watch out once you start wearing it you will get orders! I have made four now. Congrats on the month projects.
