Butterfly time!

Summer is the time for butterflies, and I decided to design and knit a butterfly dish cloth for a friend who loves butterflies. It took three or four attempts before I was happy with my design, although perhaps it looks more like a moth than a butterfly.

It’s been a long time since my last post, but I haven’t been idle. I’ve made two baby sweaters and a baby afghan, among other things. I’ve also been working on the hats and scarves for the shelter for battered women in Illinois. I’ll send my annual box of donations in early fall before it gets too cold there.


“Texas” dish cloth

This cotton dish cloth will be a gift for a Texas gal who now lives in Michigan. I don’t want her to forget her home state.

This is Teddy. He’s a tiny bear; his sitting height is 7 inches, and his standing height is 10 inches. He even has his own little red sweater. The tan and red yarns and the stuffing are completely washable.
