Finished wash cloth

Linen, garter stitch, stockinette and reverse stockinette, size 6 bamboo cable needle, 16 in.

This is another in the linen cloth experiments, but the yarn is from my snooty stash, not the cheapo cone I got a couple years ago in Rhinebeck at the Sheep and Wool Festival.

I've washed and dried it in the machine, and I think I'm going to do it with hot water and try to shrink it a little more. It has already softenend and I think it will be a gleaming beautiful cloth. I can't wait to make more!! I think the size 6 needle is a bit big, and so I'm going to try something smaller in the next experiment.
