On The Needles

I was so excited last night when I finished the last square motif for the In Love With Color Throw.  I just had to start stitching it together! I'm glad the little triangles and corner blocks were made before the squares or I might still be working on those.

This has been such a fun project. I think the bright colors help, that it will finish small and the fact that I have been doing lots of sitting with my best friend the ice bag.  There is enough yarn leftover to make something else. Maybe a stripped afghan like I did here (can't believe all that time has passed since I made those!) or a fun ripple of some kind.

This is dishcloth number 7. The little ball has not been tossed in the garbage but is in the knitting bag, just in case I run short of this next color. The new yarn for Number 8 is blue and white and it was finished at Binding Friends group and promptly given away. I thought there would be a fight over it. LOL But it didn't happen. So now the next 4 dishcloths will have homes. Number 9 has been started, I hope I don't run out of dishcloth steam before these 4 are finished.

See great On The Needles Projects at Patchwork Times.

Your blocks for your throw look like a crocheted flower garden! Just beautiful. I can't wait to see it all together. I need to get some dishcloths knitted, too. Mine are looking tired.

Lovely. I just love the bright colors. I am behind in my dish cloths for the year. I wanted to do 12 so far I have only done 3 guess I better get busy. Good luck getting yours finished.

What a pretty throw! That dishcloth pattern is one of my favorites. I need to get busy and finish the one that's somewhere in a bag.....

What a pretty finish on your throw. I love all the bright colors. Those dishcloths are like eating 1 potato chip -- you can't just make one. Glad you have your ice bag as your vest friend. That will help a lot.
