Dear Sockapalooza Pal

How're you? I haven't heard from you in over a month. I hope that everything's ok. I understand that 'life happens', so if you could please give me an update, I'd appreciate it.

Dish Rag Tag

02 September 2007
I'm participating in Dish Rag Tag. This week I was "tagged" and on Wednesday the box arrived from Kate (I don't think that Kate has a blog... I couldn't find a link).

Here's the pretty dishcloth that Kate knitted (and crocheted) for me.

Thanks Kate!

I've been dying to try Lincraft's Bamboozle (70% bamboo/30% cotton) so that's what I used.

Pattern: Lacy Mock Cable Cloth

The box was back in the post on Thursday, so if it didn't arrive on Friday, it should tomorrow (Monday).
