Yesterday after my MoRH(tm BrendaÃ‚Â Dayne)Ã‚Â I bought yarn,Ã‚Â nothing like a little retail therapy.Ã‚Â I needed some red cotton for the mid-May dishcloth for the Monthly Dishcloth Along.Ã‚Â I hit Fred Meyer because they had a buy two get one free deal and they carry Lion Cotton, I picked up three balls, but no red.Ã‚Â BTW, Fred Meyer carries a few colors of Lion Wool.Ã‚Â
Still in search of red I headed over to JoAnn, where I went aÃ‚Â little cotton crazy.Ã‚Â I had stopped at Costco on my way to the Knit-in (sigh) and picked up Mason*Dixon Knitting and Inspired Cable Knits, while looking thru them I found thatÃ‚Â quite a fewÃ‚Â of the projects in Mason*Dixon were knit with kitchen cotton.Ã‚Â I especially like the little baby kimono.Ã‚Â So, I did a little stocking up on kitchen cotton, including some red, just in case, I also picked up a couple of patterns so I can get a start on my summer sewing for Daughter,Ã‚Â Color-splash Dishcloths by Evelyn A. ClarkÃ‚Â and a piece of muslin for a doll.
When I got home I cast on for the Dishcloth Along and then finished it up today.
