The bad blogger...

I have been such a bad blogger! I'll try to make up for it though. On the knitting scene I have just finished 2 more moss grid hand towels (from the Mason-Dixon Knitting book) for my son's voice teacher who just got married.

This time I knitted them on size 3's and I really like how the gauge turned out. I even had enough yarn to do all 12 pattern repeats. They are both knit from Euroflax Linen Sport Weight. The colorways are navy blue and sage. The blue one came out a little bit stiffer but I think it's because I partially dried it in the dryer and then blocked it. I threw the green one in the dryer and forgot about it, so when I took it out it wasn't as flat but it was softer than the blue one.

I have at least 3 more of these to make but I have to take a break and knit other things for awhile before I go crazy! Knitting with linen gives me hand cramps.
