Yarn On My Design Wall

I've seen all kinds of great quilts today on design wall Monday posts.  Instead of quilting, I really wanted to work with the yarn that I just bought on Saturday instead.



I really love Cath Kidston colors, and I tried to duplicate those in the yarn colors that I bought.  If you google Cath Kidston blanket images, you will find lots of crocheted afghans in her colors. 

I hadn't planned to start another project, but I happened on to the Sew! Cath Kidston book at my local JoAnns store. The bag (below left) was a gift from my friend, Fiona, of Country Threads blog

Do you ever have one of those days when you know you want to do something but can't quite figure out what that is?  My weekend was like that.

 
First I made a few granny squares from the yarn. 



I think I need a couple more colors to go with the rest.


So then I decided to knit a square.


Then I remembered the Creative Knitting magazine that I just bought at the grocery has several dishcloth patterns in it.   My daughter pulled out a couple balls of cotton yarn, and we each knit a dishcloth.  Hers is on the left. 




Hopefully I will get in the quilting mood again soon, but for now I'm in a yarn mood. 

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
