Washcloths and Scrubbies

I've been in the mood to knit quick projects this week. I have many long term WIPs and needed the satisfaction of completing something. So here is the results. The variegated yarns are I Love This Cotton from Hobby Lobby. It is very soft, but I have found a cotton yarn that is softer. Knit Picks Comfy cotton is the softest cotton yarn I've ever felt. The solids cloths are Knit Picks Comfy in worsted weight.  I love them all :-)

I purchased this lantern from Hobby Lobby and I gave it a more Bohemian vibe.
This is the before shot.

Wavy Scarf

Manitou Passage Scarf
So I found this yarn, Loops & Threads Payette, at Michael's and couldn't resist buying it. I wasn't sure what to make with at first. Then I found this pattern, Manitou Passage Scarf, on Ravelry and thought it would be perfect. I LOVE how it is turning out.
