while home over the christmas holiday, mom and i made one of our usual visits to the local wally world. and as much as i love my fancy handpainted yarns and luxury fibers, i always end up in the yarn section of the store ... where this little gem was stocked. and perhaps it's just luck that wally world carries this yarn label, or only natural, since the mills of elmore-pisgah are only an hour away ....


the pattern for the dishcloth is printed on the inside of the ballband. it's also in the mason*dixon knitting book. there's a second pattern printed inside the ballband, for a crocheted dishcloth. i have two other balls, so i might have to try it out too.


... by the way, this is seriously mindless knitting! just what i needed ....

PEches & Creme and it's counterpart Sugar & Cream are the bane of my existence. I love them so, but I have more dishcloth cotton now than I know what to do with.

I am going to start making some ballbands though. I gotta do -something- with all this cotton!

Love the ballband dishrag. Did you use two different varigated yarns? Cool effect, however you did it. Nice blog, too:)
