The cute little snowman dishcloth above was a little gifty I left in Emily's car on Tuesday along with a holiday dishtowel to add a festive touch to her kitchen. The pattern can be found at http://downcloverlaine.blogspot.com. The designer calls it "Snowbaby Washcloth". Hubby had a little trouble actually seeing it as a snowman or snowbaby, but it seems the photo above turned out fine to view this. It looks like a snowman to me.

The keyhole scarves were a Mystery KAL for the guild. Apparently, they are addictive as I did not stop at just one. This is an online pattern, that I changed slightly. When I made this, I worked the two-row pattern for 27 inches (rather than the 14 inches in the pattern) before I made the keyhole and continued as written. You can find this pattern at http://fireflowerknits.wordpress.com/2008/02/02/quick-no-purl-keyhole-scarf
I also finished a Prayer Shawl that just needs the ends woven in and a photograph taken. I'll post that soon.

Now, in the interest of remaining accountable and hopefully finishing some more projects, I am sharing a photo of my "on the needles" projects. From left to right, I have a Weaver's Wool Mini Shawl (http://www.knitlist.com/2003/minishawl.htm), a dishcloth, THE sock (you've seen it before), and another Prayer Shawl (diagonal dishcloth design type).
It is pouring rain outside today, but I have baking to do for several Church events this weekend. Len is co-chair of the Missions Cte at Church so several of these are related to a visit from a missionary this weekend. There will be a small dinner at our house on Saturday evening and lots of mini muffins to be served at his presentation on Sunday morning. (I believe this makes me an honorary member of the Missions Cte.) The rainy day makes it perfect for baking.

If you are a fellow guild member looking at this blog post, you may want to consider knitting one of these up before the October meeting. Joanne will be teaching a program on Crocheted Flowers. Wouldn't some crocheted flowers be perfect embellishments on this little sweater?

I have uploaded a photo tour of Emily's apartment to my Webshots album. There is a new folder set up, titled "Emily's Apartment". The link is on the right here on my blog if you care to check out her apartment. I especially LOVE the way she decorated her bathroom. Here is a peak from that album.
Emily decided to have Len bring her elliptical trainer to the apartment and sent home to our house her desk and a large overstuffed chair. Rob was not thrilled with moving the elliptical trainer up the basement stairs yet again since he just moved it down there in the summer when she first moved to the apartment. I think the decision of the two moving guys (Rob and Len) is that the elliptical trainer is now in place till the end of the lease on the apartment. Below is a photo of Len's little truck upon arrival at Emily's apartment.

Later I will post some photos from our weekend at Len's 35th West Point Reunion. A fun time! Shawl knitting was the featured knitting of the trip. I started another Prayer Shawl and worked on that alternately with a Weaver's Wool Mini Shawl.

Now, for a few photos from the workshop. Work on Emily's TV stand/bookcase has moved to the finishing stage on the carcass and shelf so it really doesn't look all that different in shape from last weekend. The real woodworking this weekend involves the top of the table. A special jig had to be cut out and assembled in order to cut the tabletop. Next step on the top is to use the router to put a nice edge treatment on this piece.

Of course, a busy woodworker needs some freshly baked peanut butter cookies to sustain him for the long hours of gluing and clamping.
