Vintage Hand Towel


My vintage hand towel is done.


I wish I hadn't used variegated yarn at the top.


I don't much care for it, but I did learn how to knit a mitered square.

It was my new technique for February for the New Technique Knit-Along. Turns out there isn't much to it.

Next month I'll pick something more challenging.

I love it - right down (or up) to the variegated wool at the top. It's so cute!

I love it, like Rachel... top to bottom:) Enjoy your evening, hugs!

Stacy, you did a great vintage hand towel. It looks so nice hanging on the rack. I have mitered squares on my list for the year so I am glad to know it isn't too challenging. Sometimes easy is nice. Have a great night.
Warmly,
Tracey

It looks great. Good for you for trying something new even if it isn't too tricky!

I love it Stacy. The contrast is a design element! It makes me want to knit another one!

I love the variegated yarn at the top! Would you have preferred a solid colored top? Very, very cute!

Very nice! What color chooses would you have used?

I love it. We had these in our house when I was a child. I may have to try knitting one.

Very nice Stacy.
I really like your vintage hand towel.
Rain rain and more rain.
I arrived in GV today and it is raining hard right now.
Have a cozy evening.
Hugs, Dogwood

I like it! But we can be very critical of our own work. I think the variegated top gives it some pizazz!
