I used stash to knit up a set of 4 baby-sized "ballband" washcloths for Baby Scarlett, whose shower is this Saturday, July 21!
Whereas the "dishcloth-sized" ballbands (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/ArtLady/ballband-dishcloth) are a cast of of 39st, I used just 27 cast on stitches for these teeny washcloths, 5"x5".

Here are my Ravelry notes (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/ArtLady/ballband-dishcloth-3) if you'd care to get the pattern for either size.

So in addition to these little washcloths, Baby Scarlett will get these 3 Garter-T
tops as well! (which I posted last week in our Whatchas Knitting forum)

Love them...great idea to make them smaller for babies! I have a new grandaughter and three new grandsons coming this fall so I may just whip some of these up!

Very nice! I imagine these are as soft as they are lovely! And huzzah! for using up some nine year-old stash, eh?

The washcloths are great and mom will love using them, but those T's are SO sweet! I didn't see your post last week. They're adorable :heart: What a lovely gift.

Okay, stop it! You're making me want to use up my stash rather than buying MORE yarn! Just . . . just stop! :tap:

(I jest, of course!)

Another good idea! Although I don't generally have babies to knit for, I'll have to file away that idea. Lovely!
