Whew....


So I decided on Monday that I would make gifts for my DD's preschool teachers for the end of the year. That doesn't seem like a big deal until you realize that the end of the year was TUESDAY!! I *very* quickly searched on Ravelry and picked a quick knit dishcloth with an apple motif. I've never knit dishcloths before, so this was a new experience for me. Each one ended up taking about 1.5 hours to knit - not bad. But I rarely get to knit uninterrupted, so they took all day! Thankfully I did have some cotton yarn in my stash, but the colors left a bit to be desired. Oh well.

I also made some quick monogrammed note cards - a set of 6 for each teacher. I made them all the same, just used different patterned paper and ink colors. I think they look pretty good.

Now I just need to make 4 more sets of dishcloths/note cards for DS's teachers. At least I have until June to make those.

Knit on!!
