First project

Finally I have something to post. I have been following this KAL for a while, enjoying everyone's posts. At last, I made myself two dishrags. The one on the right was made with size 7 needles, as recommended. It seemed "loose." The one on the left was made with size 6 needles. I was surprised that is was so similar in size to the first one, but it is much more dense and springy. I haven't used them yet, to know which version is better in the kitchen.

I really like other people's great color combos, but I wanted the cloths to coordinate with the teal (!) countertops in my house (the background in the photo) so I used rather subdued colors. The yarns are S and C and Lion Cotton.

Comments:
Perfect color choice for your counters! I really like the cheerful color...what is the multi color yarn's color called? (that's a mouth full!)
 
OOOOhhh, I love the colors too! They look beautiful!
 
Those look lovely.
 
Very nicely done - I love the way the colors look with your counters!

I am interested to know the results of your comparison test b/t the size 6 & 7 needles... Do let us know!
 
Those are really pretty, the do look nice on your counters. Keep up the nice work.
 
Lovely, lovely. I can see the one on the left is just a little tighter. The colors change beautifully over both cloths. Request, What muticolored yarn did you use?
 
Thanks for the comments! I don't have the color info with me here, but I looked at the color swatches on the company web sites and the multicolor is Sugar'n Cream, probably #00158 pastel delights ombre, and the solid is Lion Cotton, probably seaspray. The colors seem brighter in the photo than in real life.
