A place for my knitting ramblings ...



Green was everywhere I looked this month. Lolly chose the perfect color for May for Project Spectrum. I couldn't possibly capture every green thing that I saw, but here are a few.

Memorial Day was fantastic, weather-wise. It was in the 80s, even in northern Michigan, which is unusual for this time of year. Had lots of outdoor fun. Also, had some indoor fun when I taught my niece to knit. She was so proud of her new skills & so was I! What a cutie ...

I love the ballband dishrags from Mason-Dixon Knitting that everyone is making. So, I jumped on the ball-bandwagon. It was fun and quick and oh-so cute! I have started a 2nd one in pink and green. I think I like the solid colors better, but here is another green FO.

Pattern: Ballband Dishcloth
Yarn: Sugar 'n Cream in Hot Green and Summer Splash

One more thing ... I made a new friend this weekend at Pond Hill Farm in Harbor Springs, Michigan. She had just gotten a haircut and loved to be scratched on the head. Pat had to tear me away from her.

Hi there!
I'm another knitting Kristin. You even spell it right! I saw your green photos on the PS site and then your dishcloth again at the MDK knitalong site. I love that dishcloth, the colors are perfect!

hi Kristin!
Thank you for joining the KAL ~ I love your ballband..aren't those fun to knit?!

Hey, I was wondering, where in Michigan do you live? I used to go to school in East Lansing (orginially from CA and back CA ~ but I LOVE michigan).

I'd like to go back to MI eventually....

Happy knitting!

Hi Kristin-
Thanks for your note on my blog!
Love your washrag. I thought I'd never want to make one but they are such bright little treats.
