Well here's another dishcloth. It is actually from this (http://www.amazon.com/Knitting-Counterpanes-Traditional-Coverlet-Contemporary/dp/0918804981/ref=sr_1_1/102-9937348-7852911?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1187390899&sr=8-1) book. (Page 39)

It's a counterpane from way back, I've been eyeing making it, but wanted to get comfortable with DPN's first. I'm loving it, and the pattern is so simple, I think I'm going to (one of these days) make a circular blanket out of it....just keep knitting.

What yarn did you use on this...it is beautiful! A DISHCLOTH? I wouldn't let this beautiful item TOUCH my nasty dirty dishes....well, my china MIGHT be worthy of being washed by such a glorious dishcloth!

Great job. I love it!
