Now with 50% More Knitting and 15% Less Frogging

I feel like an advertisement for a new product. The New and Improved Perky Knits, more knitting and less frogging. I know I have just jinxed myself but lately I haven't had to frog much, which tends to lead to a much more pleasant knitting experience.

I was in the mood for a little mindless knitting this afternoon and I have a friend that is having a birthday later this week so I thought I would make her some dishcloths for a little gift. This is the first one, it is a the Pinwheel Dishcloth from 1870 Pearl. It is a pretty fun knit that goes fast. You have to love a project that goes fast right????

I am still working on the Jaywalkers. I am about ready to turn the heel so I hope to have them done soon.

And the reason I want to have them off the needles so bad???? This. This is the Autumn sock club package from the Loopy Ewe. I received it last week and I am in love. I would love to be able to wear them to take the kids to school on the first day. I have a few weeks maybe it will happen.

May all of your knitting PERK up your spirits.

The kit from the LE is really gorgeous - what yarn is that?

All of your projects look fun. I especially like your yarn from the Loopy Ewe. When you join the sock club, do you then get a pattern too? I should look into it. Like I need some more sock yarn....but what is there were an embargo on sock yarn or something? We need to be well supplied.

Dishcloths are a wonderful quick project aren't they??? That looks like a fun one! Love your socks! I also can't wait to knit up my sockclub yarn! Yummy! (PS congrats on your recent lack of frogging....)
