I’m pretty buried in Holla Knits knitting right now – the last sample for the Holla Knits Special Collection: Warm Weather Accessories Collection is on the blocking boards, and I’ve got 2 Summer Collection samples on the needles with 3 waiting in the wings. Sadly that means there won’t be a lot going on around here besides vague WIP shots and, now that baseball season has started, some baseball talk if you’re lucky!
ZickZack Dish Cloths
I did manage to knit up three quick dishcloths over the past couple weeks while I’ve been running around or at knit night. I used my friend Stacey Winklepleck’s pattern ZickZack Dishcloths, part of the super fun Knit Picks 52 Dishcloths program. These dishcloths are for Shane’s cousin Michelle, who we stayed with when we were in Florida last month. I knit them up in various Florida inspired colors I had around my house!
Pattern: ZickZack Dishcloth by Stacey Winklepleck
Yarn: Knit Picks Cotlin (yellow), Knit Picks Dishie (pink), and Lily’s Sugar and Cream (green)
Needles: Size 7 straights

And speaking of Florida, the last time I had a Holla Knits KAL project, Cafe au Lait sweater update was when I was in Florida last month. Which is about the last time I worked on it until this week!
Cafe au Lait!
I took this progress pic of the second side of the cardigan last week!
And just yesterday I shared this picture on Instagram – I was able to finish up the second side, so now all three of my sweater pieces are finished and blocking! All I’ve got left to do is seam them up, and make the button bands. So close!
Gigantic Harry Potter Cross Stitch!
And I’ve already found my reward project for finishing these Holla Knits samples – Gigantic Harry Potter Cross Stitch! My mom caught this for me on Pinterest a couple weeks ago and I haven’t been able to get it out of my head. It’s like 3 feet long but holy crap I want to start working on it! Knowing full well I’ll be working on it for the rest of my life. Stay tuned, readers. Stay tuned!
