Yeah!! Success... and so easy :) I was very worried that the bag will turn out mangled or my machine is a front loader. Thanks to Helen who told me that i can also felt in a front loader, just need to set the temperature and put it on a cotton cycle! Look... its pretty and I LOVE IT!
Now need to source yarn and start knitting away for Christmas.........

Haven't updated my blog for a while, Opps! Can feel the laziness slowing creep in ... hmmm

Have been in Melbourne for a week with my good pal Florence. Missed her SOOOO MUCH! Was good to see her again :)))) here are some pics of our wonderful holiday:

On my trip, I managed to finish my second dishcloth Lacy Mock Cable Cloth… yeah… one more to go and I can send it off!

Silly Billy....

I feel so relieved now.... my test cloth turned out ok after blocking it... phew.

I felt the Bendigo 8 ply cotton i was using was "too skinny" and paired it with Panda 4 ply cotton and and this is the result ... not too bad, but dunno if it is now too big.... haahahaahahaha

After that first dishcloth, it felt good....Dishcloths are so gratifying .... quick and to finish, suits me :)))

I also started on the Lacy Mock Cable Cloth using Anchor Magicline - they have yummalicious colors but are a tad pricy ... too bad we don't have as much choices in multi-colored cotton yarns in Australia as compared to the US. Am drooling over the Sugar and Cream yarns.... Can someone here please bring them in?

Cannot wait to finsh it.... and start on another dishcloth.... guess what my family and friends will be getting this Christmas?

What Happened?!!!

Using Bendigo 8 ply cotton in Mango, I knitted the Yarn Over Cable Cloth from the Dishcloth Boutique ... but look at my dishcloth.... its all distorted! its not only small (measuring approximately 14.5cmx14cm) its not even square.... what have i done wrong??? :(((((((

At this rate... i would never be able to produce something decent for the Dishcloth Exchange!!!
