FOs with no proof

I have finished a few projects since my last post but while in NJ for American Thanksgiving I managed to erase 3 days worth of pics. Including an incriminating video of friends Wii boxing that involved a slight head bonk that resulted in fits of laughter from the spectators. I'm more disappointed about losing that then my knitting pics!

I took down 2 pairs of felted clogs for my host and hostess. They fit perfect but I had to pack them damp as I was felting them the day before I left. Those things are super slippery on linoleum flooring... I think I'm going to hit Fabricville and see if I can't get some suede to cut out for bottoms for the 2 pairs I have done and the rest I have to do.

I also did 2 really nice dish clothes for another friend we visited. It was my own pattern, well sort of, I did a wave type pattern that turned out well. It's a repeat of 18 stitches on 5mm needles with the cotton yarn. I cast on 36 stitches for the dish clothes. I was going to do a dish towel too and cast on 54 stitches but I never had enough time before we went to see them

Here is the 4 row repeat I did. I did it 10 times and the cloth was a nice size.
Row 1 : *[k2tog ] 3 times, [k1, yo] 6 times, [k2tog] 3 times; rep from * to end
Rows 2 -4: knit

Now let me go complete some projects I can take pictures of!

I would be upset about the loss of such incriminating pictures too ;-)
Sounds like you have been knitting up a storm again. Keep us posted if you find a solution to the slippery bottoms of the clogs.
