FO: Baby-size "Ballband" washcloths!
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 are a cast of of 39st, I used just 27 cast on stitches for these teeny washcloths, 5"x5".

Here are my Ravelry notes 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!
