Low Resistance Syndrome

I've recently self diagnosed myself as a sufferer of low resistance syndrome.  It's unknown whether I was born with this pronounced lack of control or whether it can be treated with medicine, an ancient remedy, or therapeutic touch. All I know is that I'm unable to resist a beautiful yarn in a beautiful color.  I'm currently struggling with a bout triggered by a shelf full of Cotton Classic and the siren of the Mason Dixon "Ballband Dishcloth" whispering in my ear.

I don't happen to be a dishcloth kind of person, but I do oh so love the dish towel -- I always have one hanging out of my pocket as I work around the house and have even inadvertently sported one out and about.  A few extra stitches and a few extra rows was all it took to turn the "Ballband Dishcloth" into the "Ballband Dish Towel".

Let's look at the day in the life of a nona dish towel, shall we?

I have made several of those dishcloths; the stitch pattern is so simple and fun. Your dishtowel looks great!

is great that it does all those things, but it does "Looking Pretty " the best!
great fun colors too.

Is that the knitter's new security blanket? :)

if I'm going to make it, I'm not sure it's even going to be used other than just "looking pretty". ;)

That's an insanely pretty towel. And I love how it's being put to work! Must use the handknits!

I love the dish towel! That sucker sure does get a workout.

I know that it's just me (it usually is) but I just giggled at the phrase "Dusting the wood". I'm now trying to work out if I need to get out more, or stay in more? Very nice dishtowel though.

Okay, do you do all that cleaning before you go to work? You are amazing. Nuts. I mean amazing. :-)

I hadn't thought of the dish towel in the ballband pattern... hmmm.... I have many mason-dixon projects in mind, all for winter. This could be one.

How did you get those straight edges? The towel is a great idea and I like the colors.

I'm wondering too how you got such straight edges. Mine end up wonky. Maybe I'm not carrying the yarn up the right way. How does your towel work for drying dishes and dusting? I'm very curious to know.

Wonderful! The colors are fabulous!

Would your dishtowel please come over here and help me with my housework?

I think I have just been bit by the dish towel bug. I love beauty combined with function and your towel has inspired me.
