Yarn purchased: online in Italy
Colours: grey, 20

Final size: 24x30cm

It was my first time knitting with Drops Bomull-Lin, a cotton-linen mix. I only knitted five rows of dots, as the yarn was running out. All was going well until I was knitting the last last rows before the border, when I managed to reverse directions. Despite that, it will do nicely as a washcloth!
Notes: next time, smaller needles, I think, as it was a bit loose. Here it is, not yet blocked.
