Here's what was in my box. Ball of cotton, candy & some gorgeous little hand quilted coasters that Emily made. Thanks Emily! :)
I've also completed 2 more dishcloths for another Dishcloth Round Robin swap from a group on Ravelry. The one on the left is the Diagonal Dishcloth pattern, a quick & easy pattern. It's my "go-to" pattern when I need to whip one out really quick. The one on the right is the Sunshine In The Valleys cloth from Harvest Moon Designs. Great pattern!
Hope everyone has a good week! I've got to get off this computer & get to knitting!

This is my Mermaid scarf. I'm just winging it on the pattern, so I'll write it all down for you guys while I go. I wanted it to look like mermaid (or fish) scales, pretty cool huh? I tried blocking this section to see if I could get the "lean" out of it. I believe if I wet block it & pin it while drying it will be fine.
Now I just need to finish up the body of the scarf & figure out what kind of edging to do on the short ends.
I sure hope everyone has a good week! Mine has been rather trying already & it's only Monday...sigh.
