So proud of my new towel! I'll admit that I had my doubts about this pattern for the first couple of repeats, but towards the end it grew on me (I also started to remember the pattern) and I plan to do a few more. There are plenty of mistakes, especially in the earlier rows, but I just put that side on the back. After all, it's only a hand towel!
It's in Peaches 'n' Cream because a girl's gotta eat, but I'm happy with it. Maybe a matching bath towel?
A note on color- this one is in "purple," but between the camera flash and the misfortune of my salmon-tiled bathroom...it's softer on the eyes in person. Although no amount of knitting is going to make up for the salmon bathroom, oh yes, with matching tub and commode.
I have two bathrooms in that color. Not easy getting a seat that matches.
I may have to make a few.
For the record- I gave up trying to match the toilet seat. I now have a clear acrylic seat with yellow ducks. Why fight it?
Now I look back at how wonderful that bathroom was!
Great knitting. You inspire me!
Your towel looks so nice! :)
My family and I lived for twelve years in a fifties style home with a salmon-tiled bathroom with brown tiles for trim.
My next-door neighbor at the time had painted her bathroom tile all white and it looked very nice. HER original bathroom tile had been pink with purple trim. :)
But the other day my older daughter left her beach towel in the bathroom and the colors looked awesome in there. Pink, orangy-peachy, yellow and lime green. How weird are those color combinations? Anywho it just goes to show that there is still hope for salmon pink bathrooms.
I am making the chevron stripe in the peaches and cream and am having a devil of a time keeping track if anyone in my house dares to speak to me - LOL! Either that or there is a mistake in the pattern besides the knit 5 one on the website. I think it's my lack of multitasking ability.
Ordered the Euroflax to do the moss stitch one - let you know how it knits up!
