New Stripes Yarn

I have fallen in love with Sugar'n Cream's new Stripes yarn. I first saw it on one of my mother's friend's blog and snagged me a skein at Hobby Lobby the next time they had a 40% off coupon.

This color is Violet Stripes and to me has such a Caribbean flavor to it. I dashed off a quick Grandmother's Favorite dishcloth just to try it out and am thrilled with the color and striping.

The ball band has a "pattern" for placemats using this yarn and I'm thinking about doing a couple for our table. It stripes up so nice and since I have about 10,000 dishcloths and know that they wash well it just makes sense to have placemats.
