I have never seen that colorway for SnC before.  That is so great that the garter stitch one ended up pooling so perfectly.  I always love Darrel Waltrip.  It is one of my favorites.

I found this thread earlier this year, when I was pondering what to do with a big bag of cotton yarn a friends mother gave me.  I've really enjoyed having such a great collection of patterns to work thru!

There's more I don't have photos of, and some I'm still finishing, but I wanted to share what I've done so far this year.

Ribbons of Sunshine and Chinese Wave:


An I-don't-remember-what and Chinese Wave (backside)


Darrel Waltrip and Chinese Waves and home made lilac soap:


'Gumdrop' Yarn in alternating knit and purl squares:


Another Chinese Wave and Something-I-don't-remember:


Darrel Waltrip and.... (I have *got* to keep better records!)


Chinese Wave and a Flickering Flame that turned out much larger than I anticipated:


And, while it's not technically a washcloth I had to include it -- a Swiffer cloth made of the most eye-gashingly garish highlighter brite colors:


Thanks for this thread!

Oh what joy to see all those cloths.  Someone likes Chinese Waves.  I lean toward Darrel Waltrip myself.  All your cloths are incredibly beautiful.  Cloths are so addicting. Smiley

I'm so happy to hear that someone else has been tempted to buy all of the SnC colors from Herschnerrs.  It's especially tempting this month because I recently received a catalog with a free shipping offer on the front.

Sadly, I can easily justify the purchase in my head as - everyone always needs cotton yarn, don't they?  And it's always nice to have the "right" color on hand.

I've done two more sets of cloths!   Smiley

The first set is made with green variegated and white.  I don't know what brand, because the yarn in my stash had no label.   Shocked

I made the dolphin with waves and a checkerboard.  They are both kind of rippled, but I kind of like them that way.  I suppose I should block them if I give them as gifts.


The next set are done with Lion Brand sagebrush and seaspray.  I started to do the bee stitch for the first one, but goofed (happily) and created a sort of ribbed pattern.  I caught on to the bee stitch for the second one, using the bee stitch border pattern.


I've started on a couple more, so I'll post 'em when I've got 'em!

Cheers!   Grin

The problem with being middle of the road is that you are bound to get run over.

Those are really nice.  I love the decorative edging you put around your cloths.  Maybe someday I'll learn how to do that.

thanks!  It is a crocheted edge.  I sc all the way around first, then do a round with little shells or picots.
