Yeah, Sugar and Peaches feel the same to me too, but Peaches is made by Elmore-Pigsah (Thanks Ravelry!)

AOP: I really like your cloth, especially the way one side is lighter than the other.

mykalia: I like, especially the color. I like the side where the leaves are raised better. When they're...low? not raised?...I was kinda confused about what they were.

Locally here peaches n cream is only sold at Walmart and no where else and sugar n cream is everywhere else.  Also there are different colors, I found some cool ones in peaches n cream I have never seen in sugar n cream.  Also, (I thinks), peaches n cream is a little softer.  I just wish it was more readily available.  The closest Walmart to me is a dump and the other three are a bit of a drive away.  If I'm going to be in those areas for something else as well I'll go (as in tonight wanting to go to a different Michaels to see if they had a better selection of yarn than the one closer to me (yes and no, but on the other hand I finally found the yarn I need to finish a scarf), but I won't make a trip just to go to Walmart).

I am sorry I ramble so much in my posts.  I really need to learn to K.I.S.S. (Keep It Short and Simple). Smiley

Oh yeah, I don't think my most recent cloth will get done tonight, but tomorrow definitely.

What's the difference between Sugar and Peaches?
They feel the same to me...
Aren't they both done by Lily?
Am I missing something?

They have those ribbons for a multitude of illnesses, and my roommate's mother just died (last week) from MS.  I'm just wondering if there's a color for MS?  I'd like to make her one...

I don't think there is a ribbon color for MS.  I just looked at my literature for the MS Walk, you would think they would have it on there if there was.

mykalia: I like, especially the color. I like the side where the leaves are raised better. When they're...low? not raised?...I was kinda confused about what they were.
It is a graphic flower, the pattern is called Spring Flower Motif.  The side where the flower is raised is the "right side", so you did good.  I think it is cool though that no side really looks "wrong".

Ah, I thought they were made by the same company.
I noticed the different colors too.
You can only find it at Walmart here as well.
It's annoying when you run out of cotton at the end of a dishcloth, cause the closest one is 20 minutes away and I can't drive.

No ribbon?  O.o
I know dark blue is child abuse, and red and black is for the Tempest Smith organization...why doesn't MS have one, I wonder?

I found this link: http://www.craftsnscraps.com/jewelry/ribbons.html for ribbon colors.  It says orange wrist bands for MS, and pearl (off white) for general awareness.  Take a look, it's pretty interesting.

I really like the varigated pink awareness cloth.  It looks good.

Thanks for the link, PhoenixDawn. I had no idea that the colors have so many meanings!

I finished the Double Fleck cloth ( http://www.jimsyldesign.com/dishbout/kpatterns/doublefleck.html ):

Super easy pattern.  As easy as the DW.  I like how the colors pooled like verticle curvy stripes.

Really cool color effect Smiley
I'm going to be starting a cloth using the stitch pattern from Fidget.
I seem to have lost my row counter (I think the dog ate it), so I'm limited in my patterns at the moment, as I do most of my knitting at school. Sad

wow, that double fleck cloth looks great! and the ribbon one... reminds me of the Jesus fish :-p  but its lovely... everyone's doing such a great job.

i've decided to take a bit of a knitting break.  first it was from cloths because i REALLY wanted to finish my roomie's scarf, but now that its pretty much no longer scarf weather, i think i'll stick to the baby blanket i'm working on as comfort knitting.... my left wrist has been a little sore so i've been trying to do other stuff... and working hard on my novel.  oy!

but i'll keep checking in here... just need to break off the hardcore knitting for awhile...

I finally got some pics up.
Here's about half the cloths I've knitted so far:

Seed stitch, white sugarncream

Basic Dishcloth pattern with stockinette inside.  Pool sugarncream

Owl Cloth.  Mostly to see if it worked.  Hence the ugly as sin verigated patten on a patterned cloth.  Forgot the color

I love Owls.

Big swatch of the My So-Called Pattern.  I'll be scrubbing myself with it, so I'm counting it.  More sugarncream.

Basic dishcloth pattern with stockinette guts.  I think it was like...Country stripes or something?

Went for a sort of checkerboard/basketweave pattern.

More basic dishcloths.  I love the coloring though!  It makes my inner child happy.

More basic dishcloths with st st guts.  Have I mentioned how much I LOVE self-striping yarn?

I call this one "Almost Lace".  I was bored in health class.
Every four or five rows of stockinette, I'd do a row of yo, k2tog.
It was pretty fun.

I don't block cloths.
Also, yes, that last cloth IS rotated.
