pattern: Moss Grid Hand Towel from Mason-Dixon Knitting
yarn: Louet Euroflax
needles: Boye NeedleMaster US5
cast on: April 3rd cast off: April 7th
notes: This was a farely quick knit, well, yes, it is only a hand towel. The pattern was not intuitive for me so I had to keep looking at the pattern to see which line was next. A row counter was very necessary on this project.
I was a bit worried about knitting with the Euroflax, it seems so stiff, but it really wasn’t bad to knit with and I love the softness and drape of the towel after washing. I got gauge with the US5s, but if I make another one I’ll go down a needle size as I think the fabric of the towel ended up being a little loose.
Oh, I did learn that when knitting a hand towel, it might be best to lie about it. Even your knitting friends will raise their eyebrows and ask why you would do something like that.
