I really have been knitting...

I've been a member for ages, but wasn't ready or willing to explore picture posting. But now, finally, a post about actual knitting from M-D. The blue linen towel is direct from the book. The tan one is all Kay's and Ann's faults. They told me to explore stitch dictionaries. The warshcloth is only the most recent of many. So many. Posted by Picasa

Comments:
the tan towel looks very intriguing, was it hareder or easier than the moss grid?
I am on my first moss grid one, and am not liking Row 6--oh well.
 
I'm totally knitting that exact same warshcloth as a present for my cousin. Your projects look great!
 
Your hand towels are wonderful. You have the same tight fabric as the book. What size needles did you use? I'm not having much success with the Euroflax linen on #3 bamboos. It's still too loose and very sloppy. And I really want to give them as a wedding / shower gift!
 
The tan towel was much easier, but I'm not sure if it was because I had to learn the pattern before I knit it, or because I had worked through the moss grid towel first. I used Addi Turbo circulars, US 5 with the Euroflax Original (Neptune for the blue, Natural for the tan). I'm still new to knitting (6 months new, to be precise)and wasn't confident about substituting.
