Stash-Busting... again!

Yarn: Lily Sugar 'n Cream (100% cotton) "Pretty Pastels"
Needles: size 7 bamboo DPNs
Pattern: (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.

Stash-Busting Dishcloth

Yarn: Bernat Cot'n Soft (100% cotton)
Needles: size 7
Comments: This is the result of my first dishcloth KAL. Apparently it's an oak leaf. It's not easy to see, but I do recognize the shape in there.
