Cotton Candy Colors

Yesterday I went up to my knitting class and learned all kind of new words when reading a pattern.
One of them was ssk (slip, slip, knit) and yo (yarn over)...now these
are lovely and scary sounding names to a novice knitter..but here you see one of my finished treasures..
a humble but pretty dish cloth.
I bought several hanks of cotton and was able to wind it up into this lovely looking ball that reminds me of cotton candy.
I am sure that not everyone understands about my love for cotton, wool, silk, & linen (thanks Cindy)
but no need to worry..
it's all about being happy, contented, fulfilled and joyful.
that is why I craft..good reason isn't it?

I love making dish cloths to use and give as gifts. I made one for a friend just last week in nice, springy colors. I can't remember if I asked you before, but do you use ravelry.com? It's my favorite knitting/crocheting resource. There are countless patterns available for all skill levels and many are free.
