Wouldn’t Purple Passion be a Great Name for a ripple? But, no, it’s the color name of the Phentex Craft Cotton that I picked next from my old stash.
What a pretty washcloth! I like the way this stitch pattern helps mix the yarn’s colors.
There is a slogan on the Phentex wrapper, “Make the best for less”.
HA! “Make the best with less” is more like it. lol. This ball of Phentex weighed only 1.75 ounces, smaller than the ‘Peaches & Creme’ and ‘Sugar and Cream’ yarns that I used in my first four knitted washcloths. I guess I shouldn’t complain as I got the yarn for free and I was able complete a second ‘Purple Passion’ washcloths, thanks to a good-sized scrap of a similar blue.
I figured that I might just as well use up every bit of both yarns, so the second cloth is a little larger than the first. With the bold slightly off-center band of blue, it’s far from perfect looking, but both cloths feel wonderful, so soft and thick.
P.S. Long after I finished these, it dawned on me – slap on forehead – I could have striped the second one by alternating variegated and solid blue. – must remember to try that the next time I include a sizable scrap.
