First of all I wanted to tell you that I have been working on another project... actually two, but I'm not ready to show you just yet...sorry! The only hint I'll give you is that they both involve felting.
In the meantime I've been working on knitting up some more of my chenille yarn for washcloths. I can't believe I did it, but yes, I knit another ball band! It still is my favorite cloth after all and I thought it would be fun to see it in chenille.
I used my cotton chenille yarn from PASA yarn mill (Uxbridge, MA) along with Peaches & Cream - shaded denim. Actually I like mixing the Peaches & Cream cotton with the chenille. It gives the cloth a little more body. I'm dying to try it out. I'm totally in love with the other chenille cloths I have made. The easiest one to make is grandmother's favorite and it works and washes great. My middle guy likes my chenille hob nail cloth. I was surprised when he tried it out last week. Usually the boys could care less about my knitted cloths...so I was very glad when I noticed that he had used it and when I asked he said he liked it :)
I also experimented with one of the stitch patterns in Barbara Walker's "A Treasury of Knitting Patterns"..."Dots and Dashes". You can also find the stitch pattern here.
I used Bernat Handcrafter cotton- robins egg with the chenille. I think I should have made a border as it seems a little bit wonky. I think it will make a good wash cloth. Will be anxious to see it's shape after being washed!
Guess that's about it for now.
happy knitting :)
