On the Needles Again...

I'm trying to work through my knitting funk. I have switched to dishcloths which I hope to give as Mother's Day gifts. I finished another water can in pink and have started another pink dishcloth. I also found a lot of great dishcloth patterns at Melissa's Knit Dishcloth Patterns and I am hoping to start a few of those this week. I really like the Waving Frog pattern. My knitting group is coming to a close soon but I am okay with it . I have already started planning what I want to make in the fall. I'd like to make a shawl, my teacher has a beautiful one she knit with beads. I might also try a sweater. I would love to make one but I am a larger woman and a project that big is daunting. Maybe I'll make my smaller husband one instead??

I did get some free yarn this week. My teacher was cleaning out her stash and I picked up some Egyptian cotton. Don't know what I'll do with it yet, but it's gorgeous. And hey, who can pass up free yarn?
