The dishcloths are called 4 corners dishcloth, and they are easy and fun to knit! Knitted in 100% cotton.
It was hard to get a decent photo of them, because Susie kept running away with them. I think she wanted them for herself... she kept stroking them and cuddling them...

This is what they looked like last night:
The "only" thing left now is to put on the top border and zippers... better get on with it...

Anyhoo... here's a wee update on my bag order. All the fabrics are cut and I'm in the process of quilting the bags now.
I'm almost done with the quilting, but I ran out of white fabric for the lining, so I need to get some more of that. I went to the quilt shop in Linlithgow today, but they closed at 2pm on wednesdays... I didn't know, so I was there about 10 past.... that meant I had an hour to kill in Linlithgow before I had to pick Maja up from school... went to the textile shop to see if they had some white cotton. But guess what... They were closed too!! I'll try again tomorrow or maybe friday.

I had to get new fabric for the stripe at the top, because I didn't have more left of the ones I used in the original bag, so the custom bags won't be exactly the same. Yesterday I washed the new fabric, and I've been cutting the pieces for the bags today, so I'm now ready to start sewing.
Guess I should go downstairs and get started instead of sitting here blogging...

We spent the next four days at my parent's cabin at Bortelid. As you can see there was plenty of snow there.
Susie spent most of her time either sleeping (well tucked in) in her push chair, or on her sled. She really enjoyed sledding, and even though she can't speak yet, she mad it clear what she wanted... every time the sled stopped at the bottom of the hill, she just pointed to the cord... meaning she wanted to be pulled back up again...
The rest of the holiday was spent in Kristiansand with my parents. Per managed to join us for a few days as well. First some days up at the cabin and then later on, a few days in Kr.sand.
I din't do much crafting while I was away. Remember that poncho for Maja I planned to take with me?? Well... it was kind of pushed aside by the new shawl I started knitting for myself... I got this lovely yarn as a late birthdaypresent while in Norway, sooo.... let's just say it's always more fun to start something new.... (haven't got a picture of the shawl yet, but will post one later on).
EDIT: There are more pictures from our easter holiday over at my mum's blog (just scroll down a bit).
