Stash diving today produced another WIP that has been hibernating. This must be finished asap. I will update this post when I come across the pattern in my handy dandy pattern book. I do know it was knitted with Brown Sheep Worsted. I love the color! But wait! Houston, It looks like we have a problem! Looks like the opening for the head is too small. Opps.. Most kids have big heads in proportion to their little bodies.

This is the Dragon Scales washcloth pattern in the Knitter’s Stash favorite patterns form America’s yarn shops. It is one of the eight patterns in the book by Theresa Gaffey. I am about 90% done with it.
I used the Louet Euroflax Original Linen. I do love that yarn in the really deep dark purple. Which I will have to find soon. Orange is not a favorite color of mine at all. Diane at the time when I purchased it had limited colors available and I really wanted to do this project.
Well, they are coming along. Here is my progress on bootie number 2. 80% of the 2nd bootie was knitted at gymnastics and taekwondo tonight. It is such an easy pattern to memorize while knitting. I was a little nervous as I was knitting the first one. I had no physical picture to refer to while knitting. So, I had to go to Ravelry to look at finished ones. I just said to myself, do what the pattern says. Trust it .. So it made better sense when I started the short rows there the toe of the bootie. I hope they are kick proof! The are cute. I may do some to donate to Stitches From The Heart. However, my charity knitting is kinda on hold. I finished one hat. I planned on finishing 5. Life has gotten in the way of my plans once again. My sisters baby shower is on the 9th of February. So…Her hand knits have taken a priority. We think her baby will be here early. It is her 4th one and all the others were early. I hope she doesn’t cough or sneeze when she is labor on the way to the hospital this time.. She has very quick and easy deliveries.. I am praying she does not have the baby on the side of the road in the car. Well, she wouldn’t be the first lady it has happened to. Lucky her.
This is about all I let her do tonight. Not bad at all. She is so sweet. Trixie said to me.. Mama.. you know what I am doing? I said, no honey I am not sure. She said I am making this scarf for you to wear! What a way to melt my heart! I will wear it and can’t wait for her to finish it 🙂 This is the knitting kit Daddy picked out to give her for Christmas. He did good!
