Miter Been Crazy
Made a Mason Dixon mitered square washcloth from Sugar'n Cream. Definitely found that I am an all-metal needle girl when it comes to working with cotton. Boy, oh boy, was knitting cotton with bamboo a miserable experience; instead of knit-slide-knit-slide, it was grind-grind-teeth-gritting grind. I am most likely going to add a border to give it a pulled together, finished look. In the end, I think this will be a small gift with some nice handmilled soap.
Up next--now that my fear of washcloth-type cotton has been conquered and metal needles have been bought: the ballband dishcloth!
