Corrections and Another Scarf

Do you remember that I posted this cloth as the first Illusion cloth that I had knitted. And I stated that there were errors in the pattern and the corrections that were sent were also incorrect and we were not aware of it till the cloth was almost done. Well, it bothered me so I redid it. I will also be redoing some of the other I made also. I used Cotton from Peaches n' Cream and size 5 needles for both cloths.

Anyway here is a photo of it completed as it should be without the errors and the colors in the correct order so the eggs are white on a bed of green grass. Now I can say that Illusion cloths are okay but not really my favorites.

This is a scarf that I made without a pattern. I was just using up some yarn of an unknown brand of white. It is a flocked ribbon type yarn. The border is dc all around with 3 dc in each corner and I used a "J" hook and Patons Ci Ci yarn in Rio Red. Both yarns were gifted to me by Scarlet, my sister over at The Yarn Barn.

I am now working on the shawl I started and had to frog so many times that I lost heart with working on it. But have selected a shell stitch and I am just making a rectangular shawl in the shell pattern. Photos coming when finished.

That's it today. Ghost, OUT!

Love the look of the clothes, how hard is it with the 2 colors...knitting? Not something I've done except changing colors at the end of a row etc.

Stopping in to say hi and hoping things are going well for you.

and now off to work I go
