Staci - I hope you are proud?

Whilst I was in Florida I called into Michael's and purchased a couple of balls of Sugar & Cream by Lily as recommended by the lovely Staci for knitting dishclothes. Using her pattern *here* I knitted up two in yellow and one in white - they really are as simple as says. Thank you Staci for sharing your pattern. I only wish I had brought a few more balls of Sugar & Cream as I can see more of these being knitted up in the future! 

I have stitched a little more on my Travelling Stitcher SAL with Valerie, the Fog City Dweller. Valerie has put me to shame as she has already finished hers but there's not too much of mine to go now. I am thinking  of hem-stitching this once it's done but haven't really decided as yet.

Since returning to the UK the weather here is atrocious - it's dark and gloomy and raining heavily and I am missing the Florida sunshine. Maybe I should seriously think of re-locating permanently?

iStitch Designs celebrated it's First Birthday in October so to celebrate I am having a giveaway for my loyal customers, regular commentators and followers. If you think you fall into this category, please let leave a comment on this post only. The winner will have their choice of any two iStitch (excluding Sew Seasons) charts. I will make the draw on Friday, November 12.

Thanks for visiting
Take care

    Well Done Carol!!! Your dishcloths turned out wonderfully...perhaps they'll be a nice reminder of the sunshine and white sands in FL :)
