I have finished my "slave labour" knitting project, haha. I really don't mind making a dishcloth for the wired monk staff, they seem like really nice people. Here Sage is modeling said dishcloth. I think in this picture she looks less possessed and more evil. She really is cute in real life, but she never photographs well! I really like Moe's comment that she looked like the dog/cat thing from ghostbusters, hahaha.

I also cast on for a simple shrug from fitted knits. I bought a convertible dress from American Apparel. It can be worn 40 ways! Anyway the way I want to wear it is a halter style so I would like a little shrug to wear with it. I bought this Paton's SWS from L.K Yarn today and plan to whip it up in the next week.

I actually had a very nice trip to L.K. I havn't always liked them very much. I once went there when I was about 14 (and I was quite an accomplished knitter at 14) and they treated me in a very condescending way. I have always had good experiences since then though, and today they were very friendly.

I really like this dish pattern. What's it called/where would one find the pattern?

The pattern is called Yvonne's Double Flower dish cloth. You can get it here:

They've been quite friendly and helpful to me at LK - I spend a lot of money there since I live in the neighbourhood.

I love the convertible dress...I may just get around to buying one sometime. I have their interlock wrap dress and its probably my favourite "dress up" item...

Thanks for the dishcloth link!
