one down, many to go
So...I ended up using the Shine Worsted for this, from a pattern on KnittingKnonsense - the flower. (Yeah, thanks to Turtlegirl's suggestions awhile ago, I use this website a lot) This particular facecloth is with Blush, not that you can tell from that faded out picture. I used size 6 circ needles & made an icord to use as a loop in the corner. I do love it...I would definitly use it to wash my face! So I hope whomever gets it likes it too.
Oh by the way, get used to that pattern...I'll be using it a lot. I like the little flower!
The reason I'm not using the Bacchus in the Bathtub pattern? One reason...
It's too big - it's hard to tell with this picture, but it's huge for a washcloth. I'm also not too fond of the stitch pattern on the washcloth pattern (which I switched to my favourite garter border, seed stitch pattern). And I'm not sure if it was because of the double strand of yarn, the size 10.5 needles, or the stitch I used but it stretches way out when I use. Feels really nice though, all soft & nubly. So I might play around with it with the million other washcloths I'm planning on making with a smaller needle size, maybe size 9s & start with less stitches.
This one was just a test cloth because I wasn't fond of the color - Watermelon - and it didn't go with any of the other colors. So this is for me. I haven't tried the other projects with the Bacchus patterns but I plan on trying out the eye mask soon.
In other projects, I watched 3 episodes of the Closer yesterday & worked on the Dream in Color scarf. No pictures (how interesting is a 2x2 rib scarf in progress?) but it's at 45 inches. I'm going to between 60-65 inches then do the stitch pattern again. I should finish it by Wednesday night as we are headed 2 hours south to my mom's to visit with her & my sister & her family. It's going to be chaos I know - 5 dogs, 4 kids under the age of 7, my bickering sister & BIL and my mom - but it should be fun. We have to leave on Thursday morning though, as we are having a Thanksgiving dinner at the CoffeeHouse.
Ugh. I think I need a Hot Buttered Rum.
