One of my friends recently moved to a different state.  This past weekend I went to visit/stay with her while I was in that area for an interview.  So as an apartment-warming/thanks-for-letting-me-crash-with-you present I made her some kitchen goodies.   Smiley

a washcloth:


a hanging kitchen towel:


i made this a little shorter than the pattern called for because it just seemed a bit too big to me.

and a couple of potholders:



for the smaller one i followed the pattern exactly and for the larger one i chained 36 to start.  i think i like the larger one better.  and i really like how it turned out using striped yarn.

Everything was made with Lily Sugar'n Cream cotton yarn.  I'm pleased with how everything turned out, and my friend seemed to like them, so I'm happy.   Smiley

thanks   Smiley
i tried to get colors for the towel and washcloth that would make them look like a set.
i kind of want to make more of the potholders for myself, but we don't really need any.   Cheesy

Very nice! What size hook did you use for the star washcloth? I tried making one the other night and it just wasn't working, even with a G hook  Cry
