More stripy things!

If you're going to knit up a sack sock with that Bernat Handicrafter Cotton Stripes, don't you want to add a towel and dishcloth, not to mention a tribble? I did! Now, check out what I discovered along the knitty way....


One skein of the Bernat Handicrafter Cotton Stripes will give you one large Simply Striped Sack Sock plus one Simply Striped Kitchen Hanging Hand Towel, and one Small sized Simply Striped Dishcloth with just a very wee bit left over. Roughly 4 yards. Not too much breathing room is there?


If you use one skein of Lily Sugar 'n Cream cotton you can get one Large Sized Simply Striped Dishcloth and one Tribble with ~16 yards left over.

Now, if you put these both side by side, if you didn't know which size was knitted out of which 'brand', would you be able to tell the difference?

Patterns coming up shortly as I post them separately...but for the rest of today....I'll be working on another sack sock...out of Bernat's Handicrafter Naturals in Chocolate omb. Hey..I have 4 kids you know..they all have separate places to live..gotta treat them all the same here!

Don't you just love the stripe yarn? I've done one dishcloth and about a third of a placemat out of it and can't wait to do more. The anticipation of "what will the color do next" is so much fun! :)
