FO KPs Crayon Flower Facecloth
This is the flower shaped facecloth from the book Weekend Knitting. I have made three with the recommended yarn Crystal Palace Cotton Chenille. I decided to try KP's Crayon mainly because it is a lot less expensive. This is a new color, periwinkle. It is very soft but maybe more flimsy than the chenille. I gave all the chenille ones away so I can't make a good comparison. At some point I will make the one for me with the chenille that is in my stash drawer :rollseyes: . Sorry about the shadow in the picture. I did not notice it until I saw it on the computer.

I love that book, and I have been dying to try the faceclothes. I have so much knitting to do this summer!

Every time I see those cloths, I tell myself I NEED that book. I guess I'm just going to have to get the book. Well, there, that took a lot of convincing. I'll also need to find another book, so I can get the free shipping from amazon.com!
