Ballband dish cloth
Finally I finished it. Not happy with the mess on the sides where the colors change but since it's my first one I'm not complaining (much).

It's beautiful! Love the colors! It's a dishcloth so the doesn't really matter, but it's good to practice so you'll have a method you're happy with.

The colors are great! And I don't/ can't see the "mess" on the side that you mentioned. I'll take your word for it that it's there. Your cloth looks perfectly fine to me. Be kind to yourself as you learn, and remember that we're all always learning! Good job!

Thanks ladies. I need to ask Artlady about how she does the edges again. She explained it once but I didn't do it so well. Lol. This cloth took me about 5 tries, so I'm just really happy it's done. Once it "clicked" (the pattern), I breezed right through it.

Done is always a good thing! I feel you with the 5 tries, I just did similiar on a stitch pattern that I "shouldn't have thought twice about." I just love it when I get too big for my britches. But I started it not once, nor twice, but thrice.

ArtLady is who I want to grow up to be as a knitter!

That's really nice, Janis. You are so adventurous! I only tried knitting with two colors once and gave up. What did you find to be the most challenging?

Very nicely done! Your edges look fine to me, too. These things take practice. Please accept a virtual pat on the back for a job well done.

Thank you, GG. I just think the edges with the yarn carrying could look better! I'm gonna try another one soon.

Very pretty! I made a couple of these when I first began knitting, and the last one only recently tore up. Talk about a durable pattern!!!
