What happens when you have more Peaches 'n Cream? One more face cloth/dish cloth! After hand washing and blocking Nubbins and the Knitty basketweave cloths, I thought that I may gift the cloths as either face cloths or dish cloths. This is my first time using Peaches 'N Cream and I am not sure if it will become as soft as I would like a face cloth to become, but I'm sure it depends on the recipients preference. I like them a bit softer. I assume with more washes it will continue to soften, I will have to make more for myself to find that out (ha ha, scheming to make more). These are part of a set to gift. I will re-wash and block the other cloths with this one, and that way I can see how the second washing does with nubbins and the basketweave cloth. Yay for cranking out a dish cloth, Good warm-up for dish rag tag! :)

Shades of Green Face Cloth
Pattern: My own
Yarn: Peaches 'N Cream #168 Shades of Green
Weapons: Size 8 Clover Bamboo's
Dimensions: 7" X 14" (more like a small towel)
Finish: 7/3 (Almost complete on 7/1 and put it down for a while)
I CO 65 stitches and varied over 6 row sections from a seed stitch to a checkerboard pattern, to more seed stitch and then blocks and back to seed stitch, and more checkerboard and seed stitch until I was near the end of my yarn. I wanted to make a wider cloth, and it ended up being more rectangular than square because I liked the size it was and I wanted to only use one skein. The shades of Green turned out to be prettier than I thought. Maybe I will use up my extras from the 3 face cloths in another cloth.
I have never done a YO before, so I am learning with this pattern. I am 6 or so rows in, but I may re-start now that I have started to get used to the Mohair and YO's.
(To my KVV Spoiler) Fiberwho, Did you get my card? I sent it from a different e-mail because it was connected to my Hallmark account. :)
