I used some cotton yarn to make these washcloths for my SIL. I cast on 30 stitches on size 6 needles and just knit. They came out really cute! They are 6.5 x 6.5 which is a nice size for my SIL to use on my niece and then later for her (whichever *her* needs it more) to chew on. The blue yarn is a Peaches and Creme Shaded Denim #133, not sure what the multi colored one is.
I had a little bit left of that one and decided to use it up by making a cute coaster.
I really love this color combo and use this coaster all the time! I used my size 6 needles but only 18 sts. It measures 4 x 4.25

This almost got ripped out. It's a bit thinner than I'd like, but I did a search on Ravelry to check out carseat sizes and there was one that was the same dimensions as this one, so it stayed. Here are my stats:

I'm on the 2nd sock and am almost ready to start the heel.
I needed something to knit on one night and I didn't have the mind or the light to knit on something already started so I cast on for another shelter blanket.
It was a hat I started for Baby Girl to knit on to give to one of her cousins. We've learned its better for her to knit on my kitty blankets than to knit on her own project. At least for now.
