August Dishcloth KAL & Snake Charmer

August Dishcloth KAL is done and it's a lighthouse. I picked a good color to knit it in.

I actually figured it out by day four and found the original free pattern on-line and finished it up early. I like the Dishcloth KAL because I can get one done in between projects. It takes me about 30 minutes to do the 10 rows - which is a great lunchtime break.

I've also just cast on to knit up the Knitty Snake Charmer cardigan. It's for a long time family friend of my husband's. They just had child #2. I'm going to make it with the hood in a size 3 - 6 months. The idea being they'd use it when it gets cooler. They live in way south Texas, so it never really gets too cold.

Your dishcloth looks so lovely and I agree, you chose the perfect color for it! I really love the colorline you chose for your cardi and can't wait to see many more progress pics! Happy knitting!
