Hand Towel from another POV

I was all excited this morning to post my progress on my hand towel, then I logged on I saw Amy's post about hers. But I'm too excited not to post. I don't have much time to knit so I don't have nearly as much done. But I've now got the pattern memorized so I'm making good progress. I think I ripped the whole thing out three times before I got going. The first time was to switch to smaller needles and the other times because of errors. I am using the Euroflax Linen for this one, but I have the Canapone Hemp from Elan for my next ones.

I'll admit I like the project (sorry Amy) and I can't wait to make more, I didn't find the pattern tedious and the colors I have in Canapone are beautiful. Now finishing my Absorba mat, that's a different story. Ugh, I can bare to look at it right now.

I was initially worried that my stitches still were not tight enough when switching from knit to purl, but now I think ounce its washed and blocked it will look fine.

On the Needles: Absorba (still), a log cabin placemat, baby bib and the handtowel. Happy knitting! Bobbi


Comments:
Looks great! what size needles did you decide on?
 
Fear not! The Euroflax smoothes out when you wash it. It knits up kind of 'wrinkly'.....Love this color so much.
 
I really like this - I'm going to have to try it some day soon :-)
 
Just because I wasn't 100% happy doesn't mean you shouldn't be. It looks lovely. Some people take to moss stitch better than others. I like my end result but getting there seemed so painstaking. I love dish cloths but can whip them out in a couple of days. Over a month for a towel seems a bit much. Your entusiasm is certainly carrying you along.- Amy
 
Mary Heather - I used Size 4 bamboo.

Amy - I think I put it down several times, but since it seems to be flying along now I'm much happier with it. It may have something to do with avoiding working on Absorba! :)
 
Very inspiring and utterly lovely. I bought not one but 3! hanks of Euroflax @ my LYS and immediately made huge mess trying to roll the first one into a ball, you can tell I'm a newbie.My DH came to the rescue, patient soul that he is and unravelled the mess for me. Took him a week. I will be casting on tonight. I notice in rerolling the ball that there were 2 very badly frayed spots. I guess I'll have to cut those sections out, right? Anyway, your towel is very beautiful. I hope mine will turn out as well. Miki
