Another Contest Winning

The other contest I won was in my yahoo group Shirleys Knitting Knook. It is a fun and friendly group with lots of great KALs and wonderful people! I just want to thank Shirley, Mel, Amy-lynne for such a great group and lots of fun. I should add Shirley's daughter Chantal too, because she has just started posting the daily rows for some of our KALS. They all do a great job!! Oh yea I won a prize for the Circle of Friendship Caddy I knitted in our June Mid Month KAL!! It was great fun and I plan on making more for Christmas gifts. I loved the cables in it and was good practice, because I'm kind of awkward doing cables. This was designed by Shirley and was wonderful to do. Here's my caddy.

And here's my winnings!! What a great package!!

Cover your eyes Flo and Maile!!!

Speaking of Contest!!

Well since I'm speaking of contests I have won 2 just last month and haven't had time to post about them. Ok, I haven't made time to post!The first contest was on Ravelry in the Peaches-Creme group I'm in. We have lots of fun there and it's not totally about Peaches&Creme yarn, but mostly it is. Most people think cotton is just for dishcloths and this group shows that it is not just for dishcloths! The contest was to see how many projects you could do in the month of June. I won with a total of 100 projects! So that was a lot gifts I got finished. Unfortunately I can't post all the pictures, but they are in my projects on Ravelry. I can post the pictures of my wonderful prize package of my favorite yarn!!Peaches&Cream I also recieved the title of Princess Knitsalot!

What a prize this was and I was so thrilled with their generosity. There is an assortment of all the Pisgah yarn products which isn't just Peaches& Creme. I will be posting some of the projects I do with this wonderful yarn!!

On The Ballband Wagon

Well I have been knitting for as long as I can remember and have never done a ballband dishcloth. Once I did that first one, well I just couldn't stop. Here a few of my first ones, and they make great gifts! The BB scrubbers are great too! I found the scrubbie patterns on Ravelry (My second home). These are great for travel knitting, because after the first one you don't need a pattern. I did most of these at the beach on the Lake where we camp. You can find the pattern here for dishcloth. The BB scrubbie here. and the tribble here

I received this award from Shirley and I have to pass it to 5 other peoples blogs. That is going to be hard to decide, but I will post it at a later date. Thank you to Shirley, who has a wonderful yahoo group. You can find the link to Shirley's Knitting Knook in the right column on my blog. It is a really fun group so check it out!


Well I really have neglected my blog, but I have been finishing lots of UFOs. So I will try to get them on my blog in the next few days along with a few other exciting things.

This is my fishy bath set that is finally finished. Love the double-worsted from Peaches & Creme!! The rug and back-scrubber and the yellow ombre cloth are done in the Dbl. worsted. These were the Oopsie Daisie bath set available at Peaches&Cream and linked through the progress bar here on my blog. I love making the little fish and experimenting with them. Here 's the link if anyone wants to give it a try.
