So I whipped these little babies out for dh's ds birthday (we usually just give him money, which is what he wants, but dh always wants to give him something a little more "tangible," so he was pleased when I offered to do these.) I got really tired of working with this yarn, because it felt rough against my fingers as I worked (in fact, I almost felt like I was getting a blister on one or two fingers). BUT the end result is really nice - the cotton is nice and soft, and I love that the colors it comes in is the color it was grown in.
I did the good ol' diagonal garter stitch, plus Chinese Waves and the bamboo stitch, both of which I really liked. I think they have a good texture for a washcloth (or a dishcloth).
