It's off the green needles

Borrowed the Baby Genius Burp Cloth pattern for a dishcloth. There's another photo of it here. This is the project that turned my bamboo needles a bit green. Thanks to everyone who commented about the needles picking up dye from the yarn (see the Green Needles post earlier in this blog). The dye transfer mattered way less than I worried it might: nothing is rubbing off onto the light blue and green mitered square I've started on this set of needles, and the cloth hardly faded at all in the wash. Curious.

Comments:
Very cute! Glad to hear the needles weren't ruined.
 
I'm going to try your idea of using the burp cloth stich pattern for a dishrag.
