Easter Socks are Finished

I finally finished my Easter socks! I'm so excited and I really love how they turned out. Next will be the monkey sock pattern in Dream in Color.

Easter Socks - Finished
I also finished up some dishcloths I was knitting:
The February Mid-Month KAL called Finders Keepers by Sue Schaeffer from Harvest Moons Designs. I used Peaches and Cream in mauve and verde green with size 6 needles. This was a great cloth to knit and has given me the confidence to try the ball band dishcloth that is in the Mason Dixon knitting book.
Mid February KAL Cloth
The March KAL called Empty Tomb by Lindy. I used Peaches and Cream in Camel with size 6 needles.
March KAL Cloth
The second Awareness Ribbon cloth by Donna Burgess. I used Sugar and Cream in Rose Pink and size 6 needles.
Awareness Ribbon Cloth 2
I find that when I have 40 stitches or more for a dishcloth that size 6 needles are better to use.
I am finishing the final Awareness Ribbon dishcloth, have gotten past the heel on my first Sheepaints sock, started on the sleeve for my sweater. I'm on a knitting roll!
