Last night I finished my first Mason-Dixon Washcloth from the Mason-Dixon Knitting book. The yarn I used was natural colored 100% cotton chenille yarn from Pasa Yarns in Uxbridge, MA. Remember the huge cone I bought a while back?:
I had to go down a needles size. The 8's made the cloth much too loose. The resulting cloth doesn't lay flat, but it is very soft. I think it will make a nice face cloth. I've been thinking that I may crochet a chain and thread it trough the eyelets and put a bar of soap in side. That would be nice to shower with! I was expecting it to be flat; it looks like a star fish. Is that the way it's supposed to look or did I do something wrong? Maybe it's the yarn, or maybe it's the way I knit it. I'll have to make one in peaches & cream or sugar & cream next to see if there is a difference! One thing I like best about knitting dish/washcloths is that you get instant gratification of a finished object in just one or two nights of work!
I love knitting...happy knitting :)
