Welcome 2010!

Hi to the new year!  I can't wait to see what wonderful things this year has in store. 

I know I've been quiet for the past month.  I would say I'm sorry, but then again, I've enjoyed what this month has held.  Up until the week of Christmas, I was crocheting and knitting like mad trying to get the dishcloths done.  I ended up completing 25 in total!  They were received very well, and I heard several murmured requests for a set.  I plan to make several more sets this year as I enjoyed trying lots of new patterns. 

I don't like to make New Year's resolutions, but I would like to try working with new and different yarns this year, and I'd like to knit and crochet down my stash.  I took a picture of the current stash so I can monitor my progress. 

Here are some of the dishcloth sets:
For my grandma:

For my sister:

My neighbor:

A very special friend at Chick-fil-a:

My college roommate:

That's enough for now, but later, I'll post pics of the set for my mom, and my mother-in-law.  I forgot to take "group shots" for those sets, so I'll post each cloth separately.  I'll also post my beginning stash photo, so you all can help keep me accountable!

Those are beautiful! I love how the same yarn looks so different in various patterns. It is fun to watch the secondary pattern emerge as your are knitting/crocheting.

I can't wait to see what else you accomplish this year!

You got a lot of cloths done! They are all so beautiful and I'm sure a great learning experience.

Your disclothes are amazing! I've never seen ones with such colorwork! The ones people give to me or I make are just plain - yours are quite wonderful! Good work! Good luck in the give away!
