So, I finally started a bathmat based on the Ballband Warshrag pattern. On size 15 needles I cast on 51 stitches using 6 strands of white Peaches-n-Cream; the other rows are done in 4 strands of PnC yellow ombre plus 2 strands of Sugar-n-Cream yellow. At first I was a bit concerned about how it would turn out, but it's so soft and squooshy already I just can't wait to finish it so I can sink my toes in. The red/orange/burgundy warshrag is there for perspective, done following the pattern exactly on size 6's. Must...knit...ballbands.........
I LOVE my bathmat, only did it three-stranded, but it is SO SOFT. I think the next one I make will be two-stranded. Also washed it once already, hot water, and then in the dryer. No problem!
