I finished the Ballband Dishcloth last night at a friend's house.
Pattern: Ball Band Dishcloth from Mason-Dixon Knitting
Cast-on: June 11, 2007/ Finished: June 12, 2007 (<24 hour projects are great for summer!)
Yarn: Sugar n Cream Cotton in Cornflower Blue, Ecru, and Sage, using up leftovers
Needles: US 7
Thoughts: Quick projects are such a great feeling when you finish! I made this dishcloth for my mother, as I don't need them while still living at home. I loved how quick the 4 row slip stitch pattern went, so rewarding.

And now I know just what to work on next.
The Pick:

Rebecca White Silk Sweater in Regal Silk
I enjoy the silk and the pattern. I began writing this post and listing excuses not to work on this sweater. Now, however, I see that the problems are simple to fix and the sweater doesn't have too much left to go. I plan on picking it up right now while I read Pride and Prejudice for my summer reading challenge.

Here's a fun shot of all the dishcloths I've made my mother:

Wow! That's a lot of dishcloths! The regal silk is lovely (reminds me of chocolate cherry icecream).

Your sweater is so beautiful! That silk colorway is just gorgeous.

And I love the pic of your Mom's dishcloth drawer. It reminds me so much of my Mom. She had a whole drawer full of dishcloths too. Very, very sweet.
