My Mason-Dixon ball band dishtowel is finished!
My ball band dishtowel is finally finished. I've been working on it for awhile now. You definitely do not get the instant gratification of knitting a dishcloth when knitting a towel, but it is definitely worth the extra effort. I can't wait to try it out. This will be great for doing all my hand washing of dishes and pots and pans. It's nice and big and I really think it will be very absorbant. I cast on 90 stitches and made 33 ball bands in total. That's twice the width of of a dishcloth and about 2 and 1/2 times the length, which equals about five dishcloths. The yarn I used was Peaches and Cream shaded pastels (pink, blue and mint green) and white. Now I can concentrate on bigger and better things.
