Only a towel
Completed, in all its brightness, it does a lot for a plain white refrigerator door. I hope my neighbor likes it. Surely she will be able to find it when she needs a towel.
Here's a look at the back after the ends were trimmed off.
It's not too bad, for a dishtowel. However, I'm not sure that I would be satisfied with this method for a wrap knit with pricey yarn. Even though the fuzziness of the mohair would obscure the bi-color ridges and the pickup stitches somewhat, it would still look untidy.
I know this is not much to show for a couple of weeks' knitting. I can definitely report that I have followed my New Year's resolutions: I've changed my focus, taken on new challenges, ripped out mistakes, and discarded that which displeases me, all the while considering others. I haven't produced much knitting, but I have had fun.
Dish towel based on Modern Quilt Wrap pattern (free from Interweave), using dishcloth cotton and size 7 needles. I'd like to knit this again using the muted greens, browns and off-whites of Pakucho cotton.
