Dish Towel #2

I'm always humbled when I leaf through the Barbara Walker Treasury series -- it's impossible not to find something beautiful or intriguing.  Last night with the joy of dish towel knitting fresh in my head and left over yarn burning a hole in my knitting bag, I selected a pattern from Barbara's "Second Treasury" -- Two-Color Star Stitch -- and started another dish towel.  Because please, it's impossible to have too many dish towels!

I have the Harmony guides and I actually will look through the book before I go to bed sometimes because there's such wonderful possibilities. This is a great pattern you're using!

I love her books too! There are so many patterns I'd like to try. Your new dishcloth's looking good!

This is a nice looking stitch, and the colors are great together. What does it look like on the flip side? When it's done, I'd love to know how absorbant it is.

Now I have to ask - how usable are hand knit dish towels? Do you use them to wash, or to dry dishes?

I always recommend the Barbara Walker Treasury series and/or the Harmony Guides. Sometimes when I need inspiration I look through them to jump start me. It's amazing what one can create with two needles and some string.

Ok, you've officially convinced me. I keep seeing people mention those books, and I thought that maybe I could wait a while before I bought more knit-literature...but....arg, I feel my will power giving straight out. =)

Maybe they make sense when you can, apparently, knit in your sleep. The weeks it would take for me to turn one out would require that I frame it or something. Yours are beautiful and useful! What a great combination.
