Stash-Busting... again!

Yarn: Lily Sugar 'n Cream (100% cotton) "Pretty Pastels"
Needles: size 7 bamboo DPNs
Pattern: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MonthlyDishcloths/ (mid-month Sept)
Comments: Another dishcloth KAL. This came out large... 8"x10". Kinda neat the way the colors zig-zag across. If you zoom in on the pic you can see the leafy design better. And I am discovering that I really don't enjoy knitting with 100% cotton... at least not the cheap stuff.

    I really like that dishcloth! Both the yarn and the design.

    I'm not a fan of 100% cotton, either. It kills my hands.

    Your cloth is just lovely, Janet! The colors are gorgeous. And your stitches all look so nice! :)

    I used to have a lot of problems with the cotton too until I changed needles, from bamboo to my Knit Picks set. Now I can knit cotton ALL DAY! Just try different needles and see if it helps.

    zowie! It's so bright, but I like it. I'm liking my dishcloths to be more and more colorful.

    I don't mind cotton - it's acrylic that eats up my hands.

    I like the way the colors fall. Very pretty! I plan to finish mine tonight.
