I received these cloths from Threadoryarn the other day.  They're gorgeous and i love them all!  They'll be put to good use that's for sure Smiley

I'm glad you like them!

I LOVE the two tone one you got fochaux.  I really love them all, and if possible, would love links to the patterns, or tell me where the patterns came from.

The orangy-rust one is this pattern and the grey-blue one is this pattern

For the two-tone, I just knit a square using the Waffle Check
Stitch from one of Barbara Walker's Stitch Treasury books. this pattern looks like it's the same stitch

The wool would probably felt.

I'm not sure if KeTing meant actual wool from sheep, etc. I've seen other people from places other than the US call yarn wool. I think it may be used as more of a generic term. But not sure  Cheesy

You're right, playswithneedles! It just took me some minutes to figure out why people said that it would felt  Wink
My bad! I actually know that yarn is the correct term, but when I'm tired I speak germlish. We call it "BaumWOLLE" and often just use the short "WOLLE" ("tree wool") so I got it mixed up (but even in German it's not actually the correct term and will probably distinguish the knitter from the person who just touches needles several times in their life!). Thanks for your answers anyway! Smiley

I have seen that too.  It is confusing to me, especially if you don't know someone is out of the US.  I prefer yarn being the generic term, and wool specifically for wool.  Oh well.  How do people in other countries tell the difference when speaking about it?  Context doesn't always work as a clue.

Ah, did you see the posting above yours, myklia? Wink
I think in German you couldn't distinguish it either. You'd probably either think the person is talking about the real thing or you'd ask which kind of "wool".
But as I mentioned before, it's more a problem with people who don't knit a lot. Experienced knitters would probably call the yarn by its first name anyway.

I'm so sorry for confusing you people! I learned so much crafty English around here, but knitting just isn't my usual craft, so I guess I might make many mistakes in that area.
