Kitchen towel

When I was wandering through Poundland some months ago I spotted they were selling cotton yarn.  Only £1.50 for a decent sized ball.  

Obviously you know what happened next!!!  One (no, two!) fell into my basket and that was the end of that!!!

About 15/20 years ago we were visiting Nick's son and family in Cincinnati and in the kitchens people had small 'finger towels' hanging from their oven handles.  We decided that was a splendid idea and we bought some from a family member who made them out of regular towering and crocheted a top for the hanging part.  

These have now finally worn out!!!  I've made two replacements in the past and have made this new one as a gift (don't know who will get it) and as an excuse to try out the yarn.  I'm really, really pleased with the quality of the yarn and one ball made this towel.

I think the new towel will be extremely useful. They’re very popular now, I see bundles of crocheted and knitted squares tied up with string for sale in all the trendy decor shops. You will have a fashionable kitchen!

Looks great!! :)
I don't really crochet, but I followed someone online years back and made a similar towel which I am still using. ;)

Very handy. I have one with a crocheted tab attached to a regular towel.
