Tag...You're It!!

This is on it's way to my next team mate (well it will be this morning on my way to work anyway). It was short but sweet...pretty good turn around time (if I do say so myself). The pattern I used was so quick and easy (even with the lace) and it gave me a cloth that is 9-1/4 x 8-1/2 (hope you like it Lois). Ignore that dark spot on the tote, I had to squirt it with some water to get my positioning lines off (it's dry now).

And now for the sock update... The three I started in my bout of startitis have progressed (well two have anyway) and I added another one. I'm knitting the new one in Pace- Orange. It's a cable/lace pattern available when you join this yahoo group. I've knit the recommended number of repeats, but I will be doing at least a couple more (I don't like short socks). I'm on the second sock of the Trekking yarn (at the heel flap and they match) and I can cast on for the second sock of the Lorna's pair. Sadly, the other Trekking sock in the Spiral pattern has not been touched this week.
Jacquelyn is having a blogiversary contest, mention you saw it here and I get extra credit for it (thanks).
Well, that's it for now. Go Team Sweet Sixteen! Have a great weekend!

Your cloth looks great, I am sure she will love the tote. When I first look at the picture of the socks I thought, what has she done to the leg of that sock, it is huge and the foot is normal sized. What perfect matching there. I thought I was going to have to make you go to the MD for the excessive leg sweeling, until I realized it was the second sock he he he. They all look beautiful.

That was to be swelling not sweeling, my fingers must have stuttered.

Hi Karen,

Yes I love the cloth - very beautiful I only hope I can make one as pretty. And the bag - it is just perfect - I always need another bag for another project. Since I'm away from home for 12 hours a day, I'll work real hard tonight and then maybe tomorrow at lunch time and hopefully will get it off soon. Thanks again.
