Jumping on the Ballband-wagon
I just joined the KAL last week and finally have a chance to post and say hi! I've been lurking admiring everyone's work for some time, so I thought I may as well join in on the fun. :)
I have to admit, when I first heard about the book, I wasn't too enthused, but after seeing everyone's wonderful projects, I gave it a second chance and I'm hooked! So far I've only made 4 washrags (2 ballband and 2 MD), but I can see many more projects in the future...definitely an Absorba to match the puppy-chewed bathmat in the bathroom, a few more ballbands modified to be kitchen towels, maybe another Absorba for the kitchen sink, and definitely some log cabin blankets! My house will be Mason-Dixonified before you know it!
Here are the two ballband cloths I've made...the first of many of course
now a question...has the red on the washcloth faded at all on to the white? i was wondering how colorfast the cotton was. thanks!
