The Pantry

I am so blessed to have a pantry..........  But sometimes it becomes a place to put things just to get them off the kitchen counter..........

It had finally reached the point where I could find nothing in the pantry at all.............

Yesterday was the day I finally started to make order from the chaos..........

Here is the before...............


And this is the after..............  Such a relief to have that done........

I still have two more trouble spots in the house.......  A hall closet and the master bedroom closet......  I would like to think that next week they can be put in order.

On the Needles Friday

I finally made into the studio this week........... No sewing done just putting things away........  I have however been knitting a bit at night..........

I managed to finish 30 dishcloths to give to friends.........  Some of them have to be mailed.....  I wonder just how long it will take me to get them to the post office.



The pattern is as follows...........

Cast on 39 stitches........
Knit four rows.
K 1, YO, K 2tog to end.
Repeat till there are 11 rows of YO's..........  Knit four rows. Bind off........

You can get 2 dishcloths from one skein of super size Sugar and Cream.........


I finished a pair of socks for a friend that also have to be mailed..........

I began a sweater for myself and now realize that I will not have enough yarn........  Hope I can get more.
I also finished Kim's sweater.................


Now to get it blocked, sewn together and the collar and front bands done..........



Lots of other knitting has been going on...........  Check out Judy at Patchwork Times (HERE) to see what else is on needles around the world.
