Finished a knitting project

I actually finished a dishcloth!  I wanted to get a dishcloth knit, during the Games in Rio, to go along with the Ravellenic Games on Ravelry. I picked a small dishcloth, which probably helped.

Here’s my medal for the Household Heptathlon.

Here’s the picture of my Summer Breeze Dishcloth.

My days are crazy with work, trying to have a life, making a lunch for my supper meal, going out for lunch before work, etc. I’m just amazed that I actually got this done.

Speaking of work lunches, something I had recently was so good. I spread roasted red pepper hummus on a wholewheat tortilla, added turkey, cheese, and some veggies (red pepper strips and cucumbers). I took that 2 days in a row! I work less days in September. I might have time to actually cook and be able to bring leftovers to work!

Who is looking forward to fall? ME-me-me-me! I’m so sick of sweating at work! I’m so looking forward to days of less heat and humidity! Who is looking forward to apples from the apple orchard? ME-me-me-me!
Look at this beauty from 2010!

Nearing the end of fall.

It already feels like winter and we’ve already had a touch of snow here and there.  Tomorrow, we are supposed to get 4-7 inches and they say it will be “lake-enhanced” snow, so that could mean we get more, but they don’t always know.  We’ll just have to see what tomorrow brings.

We had such pretty colors this past fall.  The colors just went on and on and on.  From the first trees that changed, to the last trees that changed, it felt like we weeks and weeks of reds, yellows and oranges.


This is near a picnic area in the Kettle Moraine State Forest – Northern Unit, near Greenbush. We found a nice trail, but it sure had a lot of hills! It was nice day to walk. 9-24-13


We found this in the Kettle Moraine State Forest, too, on 9-24-13. Red sumac leaves are so pretty in the fall.


Sarah and I had never noticed this plant before, but this year we saw it everywhere!

Dawn and Sarah on Parnell Tower

10-13-13 – We hiked up to Parnell Tower. The colors were spectacular!


We saw this red maple leaf on the steps as we were coming down the tower.


We found this tree near the parking lot, before you climb the big hill and climb the tower.


This tree was near the parking lot at Parnell Tower. It’s very tall! The leaves were so orange!


Yellow maple tree in the backyard. A few days after this picture was taken, the leaves were gone! Picture was taken 11-5-13.

I’m so behind on taking pictures of dishcloths and also getting them knit!  LOL!! I need to spend some more time actually knitting, rather than looking at Facebook and Twitter!  One of the cooler ones we did recently was an illusion snowflake in blue and white!  When you look at it straight-on, it’s hard to see the snowflake, but look at an angle, and you can see it then!

Ravellenic Games

Can’t wait until the end of the month to start a dishcloth for the Ravellenic games. It’s a pattern that has intrigued me for a long time, so I’m finally going to make it. It’s the double lattice cloth from smariek. I can’t wait!  It’s part of a big knitting/crocheting/spinning event to correspond with the Big Games in London, at the end of July.

Dishcloths from Jan through March 2012

I belong to Monthly Dishcloth KAL group on Yahoo.  We do two dishcloths a month.  I’ve been remiss about posting pictures. These are the first 6 dishcloths of the year!  Plus I knit a few others, too.  Will post pictures of those soon. I like doing dishcloths, because they are short projects!
