I am so glad you like them sonjaboo! I was a bit nervous cause I didn't think they were that good.  I was going to send extra with them but during all of my moving lately, I kept losing them before I could felt them! !yeah they are really really simple Just make sure you knit the squares a little longer than they are wide so that they turn squarish Smiley

I am so happy that you like them k8kre8s!  And I am sorry it took me so long to get them done-- I am slower at embroidery than I thought I was!  Ha!   Those patterns are so fun to work with though-- I love the little mixer.  I think that's one of my all time favorites too!  

One other thing-- the towels get very wrinkly, which was something I did not realize until after I started working with them.  But they are really soft and great to use for dishes-- so hopefully the wrinkles won't bother you too much!
