Monthly Dishclothes

As I've shared, I finished the first pattern for the Monthly Dishcloth KAL and we are now working on the mid-month pattern. We've been given 3 days work of the pattern and this is how mine looks so far:
I'm using Lily's Sugar n Cream in Daisy Ombre and EP's Peaches n Cream in White

Many are having difficulties working this pattern but its coming along very well for me. I did have to re-work the yellow one because I somehow knotted up the project in the beginning but it was fine once I started again. Like most, I've lost a stitch or two and even gain some but I just K2tog or added a yo so that it was right again. I am sure it will look great though I've had to modify it due to my own errors. Its a learning curve, you see. I have learned a few new stitches with this pattern, like ~ P2tog tbl which means purl 2 together through the back loop. Now that sounds easy right?! Well, it actually was once you got a visual of it. I kinda guess at what they were meaning since I had done knit in fbl for the garterlac pattern. I checked my work using the Vogue Knitting book and I had done it right.

I'm enjoying working the clothes, they are quick, easy and lots of fun and I get to learn some new stitches too. I purchased more cotton before my yarn diet so I can make up some for gifts. I have found several new patterns tonight and I'll have to work on adding the links another time. I must start going to bed at night. ;D
