Wash 'n Dry

I knitted up some small projects over the past few weeks...

I made a couple of hand/dish cloths to send to my blog give-away prize winner, Roxie.
She wanted me to choose a multi color yarn.  So, I picked one of my favorites, Countryside Ombre.
I love the lavender/purple and green hues.  So pretty!  I hope she likes them too.

I also knitted another Basket Rib Hand Towel.  I've knitted a few of these and love them.
This one is knitted with a ball of Sugar N Cream yarn that I bought just because the colors were pretty.  Actually, that's my main reason for every ball of Sugar N Cream that I buy.
The color name on this one is "Emerald Isle".   I have to admit that I don't like it as well knitted up as I did when it was a ball of yarn.  I'll enjoy using it though.

I just love cotton and making things with it.
I'm currently in the middle of making a giant doily/table cloth with some natural color
Handicrafter Cotton.  I hope to have it finished soon.  I'll post pictures when I do.

The next project I knit - thinking about a baby sweater - I am going to get advice on blocking. I don't do that well. One of the few knitting skills I did not get from my grandmother.

These are lovely. There is something so sublime in knitting a bunch of wash clothes.
