Hand Towels are Fun!

I have started the Moss Grid Hand Towel in the Euroflax Linen. The linen is kind of hard to work with, but I know it will be worth it. I am concerned that the knitting is a little too open. I went up a needle size because I usually knit way too tight, and I didn't do a gauge swatch. I figure it is just a hand towel, not like it really needs to fit anything! But I don't want huge holes in the finished product either.

If this looks way off what someone else got, please let me know! Thanks!

I made a washcloth out of Euroflax years ago from the Knitter's Stash book. It was a b***** to knit. Very inelastic, but it is now so soft that I am considering trying the hand towel from MDK.

i made the chevron hand towel and it seemed to have big holes as i was knitting it, then i washed it and everything tightened up and evened out.
 
It is beautiful... I am going to have to try this one, too. So much to do.
 
I think it looks great just as it is.
 
Thanks everyone! I feel more confident that this hand towel will turn out wonderful!
 
I just knitted one of the towels (I'm making a set of four for my friend's wedding in mid July). I also ended up with holes, but I figure that the fibers are going to stretch out just a smidge.

I actually setup the photo I took of that towel for the background of my blog - where you can see all the holes and such.
