Nope Gretchie, this isn’t for you.  It’s my third ballband cloth.

Yarn:  The main color is Sugar ‘n Cream’s Pinky Stripes, and the trim is done in Lion Cotton raspberry.  Boy is the Lion Cotton worlds softer than the “Cream.”

Needles:  I was worried the “fabric” of the others would loosen when wet and in use, scrubbing, so I dropped down to a US size #6 for this one.   It was a royal pain to knit, so I’m happy to report that my sister says the cloth made on #7s holds up just fine.

Of course, I’ve already cast on for #4.  I only have three cloths in my to be gifted pile, so I need to keep chuggin’ along.

I’m not sure what my weekend holds.  I don’t know if my back is up to riding to Richmond for the RCK vendor fair tomorrow, and that’s all that is on my agenda.   The Knight and I haven’t been home together in a while, so that will be nice!

What do you have planned for the weekend?

    more car shopping, I hope it gets one tomorrow since september weekends are filling fast and this car must be turned in by the 30th,

    also lots of knitting and trying to stay cool.

    I totally sympathize with the back

    Pank is beautiful

    and I agree the Lion Brand Cotton Ease is almost like Ty Dy cotton that is why I used both together on Leila!

    Happy weekend my friend, Hugs

    Sewing, sewing, sewing! I just got a pile of fabric and I’m excited. My back isn’t up to riding around in the car much, and surely not standing for long times, so you have my sympathy.

    Another really pretty ballband cloth here!

    Happy weekend (or Big Friday, since Thursday is Little Friday)!

    This weekend looks like fabric shopping with Rob for the library. We can never agree, so don’t look for results on Monday.

    I need to trim some dogs this weekend and rest my leg as much as possible. Send some of your cast-on-itis my way. I have projects to do and can’t seem to get started.

    Monday is our first day of school. I’ll be cleaning up the house and making preparations for a fun day. And I work (I haven’t been there in over 2 weeks…I said I would work 2 days a week for September while they train a replacement).

    I’ll have to try the Lion Cotton. I don’t see it as often around here.

    Oh…and LOVE the PANK…my little girl claims anything pink or purple as hers. But Mom love pink too.

    What a “pretty in Pank” dishcloth. That would make me smile to wash dishes with – that is until Beau ate it. Don’t listen to a thing CoffeeYarn says about him.

    Weekend includes a work BBQ and poker – big fun. huh? g

    Niiiiice! Those really pop together.

    Looks like my weekend is going to be spent still getting over this crap. I *loathe* not being able to get up and do. ::sigh::

    I love the look of these, it’s just the edges that turn me off… maybe if I crocheted up both sides I’d like it more.
