Dishcloths 19 & 20

Chinese Waves Dishcloths
Pattern by  Margaret K. K. Radcliffe
I love this pattern, and when I need something very easy to do while waiting for the kids at TKD or pick up from school I quickly grab one of these to work on. 
Fergus approves!  I made 2 identical ones from 1 ball of cotton yarn

First hand spun project, Alice Handwarmers

For the past few months I have been learning to spin at the Handweaver and Spinners Guild of Victoria with my friend Donna.  We have been having a great time, and learning a lot!
Here is a pair of handwarmers from the very first wool I have handspun, and then hand dyed.

Needles: 5mm, and knit in the round.  I ran out of the dyed wool just before the end, so I added a little bit of natural handspun wool.  Nice and warm.
Now we have the spinning bug, we went to the Bendigo wool show and I bought a Majacraft Little Gem Wheel.  It is fantastic, and I am really happy with it!
