I have been asked on several occasions what Yahoo groups I belong to. One that is most asked about is the Monthly Dishcloth group. Here is a link to that group.

I have enjoyed being a member of the group.

I hope the color in this dishcloth shows up better than the last one. This is my latest KAL from a dishcloth group on Yahoo. The KALs are a mystery until the dishcloth is usually 3/4 of the way done. I thought with the bobbles, it was probably holly leaves and berries. But it turned out to be a poinsetta. This is good for the season. Poinsettas are a symbol of Christmas. I have not done the bobbles before, so it was a new stitch for me. I enjoy learning how to do new stitches.

Here is the latest in dishcloths that I have knitted. This was done as a KAL on a Yahoo Group that I am a member of. It is a picture of a turkey. Which is appropriate for the month of November.

For the knitted dishcloth, it is a pattern called Thanks. I hope you can see the pattern. It is the Horn of Plenty with the word Thanks above it. Even though I have worked several knitted dishcloths with patterns, some are fairly easy and some are hard. This I would classify as medium. It is getting easier to work the patterns as I go along.

I belong to a Yahoo group, NCB Dishcloth Mania. Each month we vote on a choice of four or five crochet and knitted patterns to do that month. We one of each craft. There are several that either can't knit or crochet, so they do what they can. This month for the crocheted dishcloths, we did a Diamond and a Pumpkin Pie dishcloths.
The dishcloth on the right is the Diamond pattern and the one on the left is the Pumpkin Pie. It was even easier to work on. Was able to get these done in just a couple of hours.

Update to my blog for today. Haven't wrote anything here the past couple of days. I just finished my latest Christmas project. This is an afghan that will be used as a gift. Won't say who, as that person may check out my blog and see what they are getting. This is called a Stained Glass Afghan. The pattern calls for different colors of yarn. So I looked in my stash and was able to pull enough yarn out to do the afghan. This pattern is in a book called Scrap Yarn Afghans, Book Two and was put out by Leisure Arts. It is done in strips, then the strips are put together. It is a fairly easy pattern to work with. This makes the second in this pattern that I have done.
