Some Promised FO's

Okay, a couple of posts ago, I promised some pics of the Bark Sedge Stitch Dishcloth. I won't show the one I did for my swap partner, b/c she won't have gotten the package yet. However, I do have another one to show you. BTW, who names this stuff? What is a Bark Sedge? All I know, is that this crochets up into the nicest, thickest fabric I have seen in a dishcloth. And its pretty too. I also made some baby washcloths, for a friend who is having her baby on Friday. It isn't exactly this stitch, but its very similar, and out of Cottontots yarn it makes a nice yummy and soft baby cloth. I am also doing her a quick couple pairs of booties. Found some really cute crochet ones on Ravelry, so I'll post pics when they are done. (Sorry for the blurry picture). Tonight, my DH and I are working outside on a garden in our side yard. There is nothing out there, and we drive by it constantly, and I am sick of seeing no color. We will be having our daughters open house (from high school) in June, so I need to get everything set and planted (perennials) now. My mom and dad are coming up on Friday and Saturday, to help us do some planting. My mom is bringing us a bunch of her lilies. I promise :) to take pictures and to post them next week. Oh speaking of mom and dad, today is their anniversary!! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY MOM and DAD!!! They are celebrating 48 years!!! WOW! What an example!!!
I really am almost done with my Ripple Ribbed socks, but they need to sit until I get these baby items done and a couple of dishrags for some brides' showers that I missed while we were gone. I suppose with all the showers coming up in the next year, I should just constantly have one on the needles! Or hook as I seem to be doing a lot of crochet lately.
Oh yes, another FO is my Quickie Cowl, done with the lucious yarn I won from Peaknits. This Plucky Knitter yarn is just wonderful to work with. Maybe I'll have to order some :) Don't tell DH!!! :)
Guess that's it. Hope your having a great week. Thanks for stopping by!

The crochet cloth looks very thick & cushy. I love it in those colors! (Turns out sedge is a marsh plant. Hopefully, the *bark* of it looks similar to the pattern on the cloth. Otherwise, we yarny folks are just loosin' it.) jk

Your cowl is very pretty! Nice job on the even looking.

Big congratulations to you mom & dad! Oh yes, they're very good examples.
