This week's completed projects

Monthly dishcloth KAL. This colorway is SnC Rainbow bright ombre. It worked up nicely and will match. Handtowel I made earlier. One Christmas gift--done!
Below is mid-month KAL from Knitdishcloth group. Bernat Handicrafter. I suspect this one will be sailing on the Just B Gunn. Capt Noah Gilligan Gunn did me a favor so this dishcloth and M&Ms will be his reward. I may try to work out a handtowel.

Here they are my first pair of socks. It's 90+ degrees so can't wear up yet. I'm pleased with how they turned out and am starting pair two tonight. I'm going to try the Cat Bordhi method. This is a prayer throw I made using persimmon TLC Amore and size 10.5 needles. Pattern is flickering flames from THE HARMONY GUIDES vol 3.

The bookmark to the right is mid-August KAL designed by Liz Hanson. I have a couple of children that will receive one of these. I'll probably buy some brighter yarn and use #10 cotton. Both of these were made with DMC Senso which is fairly heavy. Bookworm was on size 3 needles. The other bookmark is Brian McGaunn's flowering vine. I'm going to try this one also with #10 cotton or Grace. Rachel's Knitting Room KAL is a Kool K-9. Yarn is SnC Robin's Egg Blue.
I also made 4 more prayer throws from the Serenity Prayer panels. My flannel shrank badly so these are small than first. That's what I get for buying cheap flannel. I get to work on socks next weekend.
I went to stamp camp this afternoon. We made Halloween favors. Taped a scalloped and stamped piece to a sucker. Also made a get well card and matching envelope.
I'm up to the neck shaping on my twin set. I hope to finish it over my long weekend. Next week I'll start Christmas projects in personal knit time.
