Here are some of the potholders I've been working on for the last few months.
They are from the book "Domino Knitting". This batch is all stripey. For the first two I changed colors by changing the yarn. For the last one (on the left) I used some self-striping yarn. The effect was not quite what I was expecting. I really like the border and I'm going to used it in other projects, I'm sure.
But, this washcloth is the way to used self-striping yarn. It makes the simple design look fancier than it really is. And, no ends to weave in!
