Pattern Pages for the projects I plan to make in September

My Ravelry Project pages for samples of previously completed items:

  • Salmon Quinn Bag — This is the bag I finished in July and that is pictured in the podcast.
  • Ladder Stitch Dishcloth — This is the first dishcloth I finished, which was not shown in the podcast.  You can see I made a mistake somewhere near the beginning, so it is kind of flared out at the bottom.
  • Pepper Pi — This is the first Kitty Pi I completed, which was pictured in the podcast.

Headmistress Challenge — This is my project page for last term’s Headmistress Challenge, which includes pictures of the bookshelves I polyurethaned.
