1. Find instructions for homemade yarn swift. My dad is pretty good at the wood work, so the instructions can be complicated.

2. Find yarn for Jen's union jack sweater. I don't remember the brand name... Anyone? Anyway, lets find a cheaper substitute.

Weekend Knitting is the book with the daisy washcloth in it. I have yet to find a pattern on the internet.

That book is fantastic. I can't believe I haven't bought it.

Here's some knitted flower patterns that (with some light modifications) could be the flower washcloth.

Thanks ladies for the alternative yarns! I'm actually thinking a light cotton would be nice too. Mohair might be too much of a pain in the butt to wear, let alone KNIT.
