A little progress

I'm still in a knitting slump - but did manage to knit some mindless dish cloths - mostly Grandmother's favorites, with a couple more challenging designs. And, no...I don't do this many dishes. In fact I rarely do dishes at all! But they are nice to have on hand for a little gift.

And, yes, I am counting each one separately for my 52 in 52 because I'm way behind this year!

I finally found the perfect pattern for the Prism Rayon Ribbon that my niece Linda sent me. The pattern is the Panda Cotton Drop Stitch Scarf .

I added some fringe to it to show off the beautiful ribbon more.

And last (and least) is my Voodoo Doll - my own design (can you tell?).
I crocheted this as my project for my Whoduknit Group inspired by our May book, Deadly Night by Heather Graham. As you might guess the book dabbles in the occult - voodoo dolls, reading of tea leaves and palms,
and of course ghosts. It was a fun read. I had fun making the voodoo doll, but haven't decided who to use it on yet.

Don't you just love to find a surprise on your doorstep. I received one this morning from my friend Patty. I've never actually met Patty in person, but we have been internet friends for a couple of years now. We 'met' though our interests in knitting and reading. Patty surprised me today with this beautiful shawl! It's absolutely gorgeous and I love it!Thank you so much Patty - you certainly made my day. And I will always cherish this shawl.
