It turns out the pattern for the dishcloth I was working on last night was just fine; I had thought the image was a little different than it is. As soon as I actually looked at someone else's in the "all knowing data base", I realized it was OK. So I finished it up this morning before heading up to the Cities, making for #2 FO.
There was no such thing as bright sunshine this morning, I think it had something to do with the rain last night. Luckily there was a bit left out in the yard when we got home, so I am hoping the image in this picture is a bit better.
