EXTERMINATE all spills with these reusable cotton washcloths. Brown cloth is modified slightly to make larger because the taupe cloth came out on the small side. I use washcloths around the house in place of paper towels. They're great for dusting furniture and blinds/shutters. I also use them as "coasters" for my teapots and large mugs.

Dalek Washcloth in S&C Taupe

I had to make these cuz they're so cute. I followed the pattern as-is for the taupe cloth which came out on the small side. No biggie, I use wash cloths of all sizes. I made the brown one a little larger by padding the sides with a 2 extra stitches and working an extra 2 rows of stockinette at the top & bottom.

I'm still working on the Four Rib Braid Cable Mitts for the Little One's other teacher. I have to get it done by tomorrow so I can wrap it for gifting on Friday. You saw the purple pair for her other teacher here. I'm moving slowly today due to a cold. I hope I feel better by Friday when the Little One has her Christmas Party at school. The Little One even told me today that I had to "hurry up" and finish these mitts, because she wants to help wrap the gifts.

What is your opinion of Matt Smith as the Dr?

I've been so busy in Real Life (during the past 1+ yrs) that I've still got the entire Matt Smith season on Tivo! :(

However, I finally found some time to catch up and just finished the episode where David Tennant turns regenerates into Matt Smith ... so I'm about ready to start the season. :)
