Knitting in Envy

The whole time I was working on Dean and Katy's wedding gift, a little green monster was growing inside of me. I only have one hand knit dishcloth, and I wanted more. I decided to keep up the momentum I had created with their kitchen set and stock my own kitchen.

Patterns: Ballband Dishcloth from Mason Dixon Knitting, Lizard Ridge Dishcloth (Rav Link), and Circle Cloth
Yarn: Lion Cotton Yarn in Sunflower and Navy
Needles:US 7 (4.5 mm) and US 9 (5.5 mm)
Notes: Hubby picked out these colors. He swears that he didn't choose them because they were his high school colors. Generally I liked them because they match the beautiful vase we picked up on our honeymoon in Spain, but there were times when I would look down at the knitting in my lap and felt like I was cheering for Michigan.

I made two of every pattern and alternated the color set up. One of the circle dishcloths did not make it into the photos, because I have been loving these so much they haven't all been clean at once. I had bought 4 balls of yarn from the Lion Brand Studio, but all 6 of these cloths came from just one ball of each color.

I didn't make any adjustments or changes to any of the patterns, the only note I have is that, the circle cloths are a bit smaller than the others. They could use an extra column and an extra row, but I would have needed my other two balls of yarn to make that happen.
