Super Soaker Towel

I bought a mega huge mammoth skein of Lily Sugar & Cream cotton when I went to visit my mother back in Texas a few years ago, and I have tried a couple of projects with it, only to find it wasn’t the right yarn/pattern combo. So after receiving a lovely knitted dishcloth from a friend, I thought that I’d make a hand towel with the thick, absorbent cotton. This pattern has a the added benefit of being called Daily Grind, which I kinda like. It’s good to have a sense of humour when it comes to housework!

I kinda like the way it turned out, but it’s not as absorbent as I had hoped. Maybe it needs washing without fabric softener. Plus the holes mean the towel keeps getting stuck on our towel rail. Hmm. Semi-successful project, I’d say.

Well, at least it looks pretty in the photo (well I think it does, anyway!).
