Both sides look nice IMO. It's amazingly flat. This piece doesn't have much stretch to it. I'm using size 8 needles and Peaches and Creme yarn, Sunshine and a blue w/o a label so I don't know what they call it. Larger needles would make it looser and somewhat stretchier I suppose and would be a good dishcloth.
I got the yarn for a circle cloth and it got hijacked for this.
Yeah, that's easy to do. Try making yourself do it sometime, you might be glad you did.
I did a search on ravelry.com for the Linen Stitch, I found this. Does it look like the Linen Stitch you used?
