I've been wandering around all day wondering what to do with myself ! Last night I needed a break from the Australian tartan rug, so I started a child's crochet sweater and finished the back (looks good too, even if I say so myself). I don't know what's wrong with me but if I see a pattern that looks interesting I simply need to try it NOW. Well, today I spent some time having a browse at patterns I have saved (from the net) onto my computer and stumbled across a knitted dishcloth pattern called Aussie dishcloth - no picture - big mistake !! Of course, I had to grab some needles and start making one (the crochet sweater can wait). What do you think of this ?
I can see Tasmania and the bottom part of Australia - BUT I can also see the letters AK - should that be AU ?? Now that just doesn't seem right to me so this little project is destined to be frogged as I don't want to waste my lovely Bendigo cotton. What a waste of time - I could have done the front of that sweater.
To cheer myself up I grabbed my good old hook and made something yellow. Found this coaster on a fellow bloggers blog. I believe the pattern is on Ravelry - also free from Coats & Clark website.
It is yellow but my scanner seems to be less fond of yellow than I am - or its having a bad day too! Actually, the coaster is yellow with a green edging but of course you knew that !!
Seems I'm not the only one having a bad day .. two of the local radio stations have gone off the air - probably something to do with the weather - so I think I might go to bed and read a good book.
