© June Scroggin, All Rights ReservedUsing the Mason-Dixon Knitting: The Curious Knitter's Guide: Stories, Patterns, Advice, Opinions, Questions, Answers, Jokes, and Pictures book, I knit a hand towel in a moss stitch grid and then a washcloth in a chevron pattern. The yarn is Louet Euroflax as I love knitting with linen; it’s so soft later. I can’t find my little tag to tell you the color, but I seem to recall it’s #48 aqua.
The hand towel is blocked and now I just need to block the washcloth to make the chevron pattern pop a bit better.

Because the Euroflax is so expensive (~$24.95/skein), I tried the same project in Peaches & Cream cotton yarn. The color is #69 silver gray, but my eyeballs translate it to blue.The Olympics were awesome and the knitting relaxing—so all is well in my world.
