That's great, daina!  For those liking skulls and knitting lace...there is a great pattern HERE.  Not a cloth, but still cool!

I LOVE the skull!

As for a yarn swap... let me get this One Heart One World out of the way (http://www.funkycatstudio.com/?p=6) and I'll see what I can do.  It looks like our Wal*mart got a bunch of new stuff in along with small balls of solid in red, which I have been really attracted to lately.  i'd prefer the cones, but that's okay.  I'll take what I can get Smiley

I do have a couple balls of solid laying around, but I'm hoarding them :-(

Hmm.... I don't know what to work on next, but that Skully is looking AWESOME...

#3 cloth for my aunt.  At this rate I'll have all 8 done by the end of the year.  I'm aiming for at least by the end of the month (though I would prefer greatly sooner, I don't want to leave her waiting).

This is the Friendship Chain Cloth:

Onto #4.

I also forgot that I did the Oak Leaf cloth for a swap.  My swap partner Yelley took a really good picture here:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=221089.70

You may have to scroll down the page.  It is toward the very bottom of the page.  I have a couple of more dishcloths to make as a part of swaps.  I won't be able to post them a while.  It will be a while before I send then I need to wait for them to receive.  I will post pictures when I am able.

Those are excellent, myklia!  I love the oak leaf, especially.

Completely rainbow obsessed SAHM to 3 & hoping to add #4 to our family this fall!

Have old jeans, pillowcases, or t-shirts? I'll take them! I'm also always looking for the sleeves to women's long sleeved shirts!

myklia, your friendship chain looks better than the one on from jim's site (no offence no anyone of course) i just think it looks better to see the whole thing.

i had some dental work done yesterday and slept almost all day (gum surgery, extracted a tooth) and i tried to do some knitting last night but was feeling a little queezy... was thinking of trying again today but can't decide what to make Sad  i love skully but not feeling quite "with it" (thanks vicodin!) to keep track of where i am in the pattern.

sooo i might try garter stitch lace or the garter drop stitch... i haven't seen anybody do that one...

*is currently busily linking jim's dishcloth links*

You poor thing.  Been there.  When I had a similar thing in high school I think it took a couple of days for me to feel normal again.

Thanks for the compliments on the Friendship chain and Oak Leaf cloths. 

I vote for the garter drop stitch.  I can't think off the top of my head what it looks like, but I want to see if I should consider it for the future.  I haven't done any drop stitch patterns.  I still have nightmares of my unintentional dropped stitches when I first learned to knit Shocked

I tried to start the Spring Flower Motif today, but the pattern is written in a way I don't like and I screwed up and ended up frogging 10 or so rows.  I rewrote the pattern in word and e-mailed it to my job.  I don't have printing capabilities at home, but I can print there and start all over again.

So I haven't looked at the first page patterns for some time.  You totally rock WCX!!!!!  Tons of patterns I haven't even seen before.  Though I swear, once I am done with the cloths for aunt and my swaps, I will do the garterlac.  Don't let me get distracted, I must face my fears which is why after that I should do the garter drop stitch, there is one with short rows, and a round one.  All of these will help me to obtain some important new knitting skills.  Yay!!
