I finished my MIL's birthday gift - just in time. Her birthday is in two days.
The dishcloths went really quickly. The dish towels, not so fast. These were my own modifications from the Mason Dixon Ballband dishcloths. Basically, I cast on 6 more stitches than what was called for with the dishcloths. Knitted three stripes, gartered the rest, then put another three striped on the top.
The two little round things are scrubbies. These go FAST!
(UPDATE: I've received a couple of requests for the dishtowel pattern. I've written it out here.)
