Absorba the Great!!!

Ever since I opened the pages of Mason Dixon Knitting, I wanted to do this project. I just recently moved and wanted some zip to an almost all white bathroom. 

This was made with three strands of Peaches and Cream Double Worsted cotton yarn on Size 15 needles. I used my Denise Circulars and it made it very easy to maneuver. It worked up very quickly and I have already received comments during the working up. 

Because it was a "log cabin design," you don't have a lot of ends to weave in. I will warn you, though, that it can be hard on your fingers during the cast on of the next strip. I considered using a large crochet needle, but didn't want to have to "finagle" the loops from one needle to another. I can definitely see myself doing another, but not for a while. I know that when my friends see this, they will definitely want one.
