Here's a Ballband Washcloth from Mason-Dixon Knitting. Started on Wednesday last week, just darned in the ends. Very easy knit, and used some half-balls of cotton that were lying around. Yes, that's the dark Sugar'n Cream you sent me, Donna!
And Ice Queen from the latest Knitty - very nice! I know - it's 34ºC (93ºF) outside, it's the last thing I need - but in fact it's good summer knitting, very light and lacy, and I'll be all ready for winter!
It's fairly straightforward Feather & Fan, with beads thrown in for prettiness! I actually wound the skein of lovely soft blue laceweight (which featured in my Blue Willow painting) into a ball at last. This project will only use a small amount - plenty more for a special stole or shawl or something!
I've finally picked up a paintbrush again - it's been nearly 2 months since I've had the time / place / inclination to paint - all the moving house and funeral stuff squashed my creativity for a while there. But I'm back! Just doing some simple exercises at the moment, nothing fancy, but it still feels good :)
And last night I sat down and inspected the Crossword Bag in detail (remember, I lost all my notes...) and have written out the basic pattern for myself - now I can start doing the illustrations and getting the whole pattern onto my web site - stay tuned!
