#15 thru 23 – Playing with Peach and Green

This batch of washcloths began with some donated Sugar ‘n Cream ‘Light Green’  and two hand-rolled balls of a very pretty peach/green/cream variegated.

I’d already turned the missing ball into three pretty washcloths.

The first two came out looking very similar.

So I was quite surprised when the third one came out as an argyle! cool.

Next I thought it would be fun to knit some striped washcloths. The first two begin and end with two-row stripes of the variegated.

The third begins and ends with solid green; interesting the difference that one small change makes. – Oh, Look – another argyle! –

Then I made a scrappy one, to use up the rest of the green. . .

for a total of seven.

But I still had a bit of variegated left, so I combined it with a small ball of pale yellow and made two more.

Only three balls of cotton left from that purple bag of donated yarn.

I think I’ll play around with the Sugar ‘n Cream Twist next. It’s got two plies of white with one ply each of country blue and mint green. Very subtle.
