Good news and dishrags
Okay, on to the dishrags:
Knitted dishrag #1 -- Ballband pattern. This is my favorite, so I kept it, and I have used it plenty. The pic doesn't really do it justice. It's purple on a black background with a lime green varigated streak.
This is my first attempt at "Feather and Fan", actually my first attempt at lace period. I used the pattern from the Barbara Walker anthology. It was pretty easy, unlike my second attempt at lace, which will get to in a minute.
