I've started and I can't stop

Obsession?  Addiction?  I have more dishcloth yarn than anyone should and once I started making these I couldn't stop.  I'm at 16 and counting.  I'm hoping to make a dent in my dishcloth yarn.

The photo below is my dishcloth yarn before I started.  I've been to Joann's and Michael's recently and had to force myself to say away from that yarn.  "But there are so many new colors to choose from."

Don't you just hate willpower.

I was taking some yarn out to the back yard to photograph.   Kitty Kitty, being her inquisitive self, came to see what I was doing out there.  Next the bunny, who never wants to miss out on any  fun, came for a visit.  I finally got my yarn photographed.

This is what it looks like thus far.

Ballband mania!!

Kathy was making ballband dishcloths for a Pueblo Bombing.  I hadn't made any in a long time and was inspired to start a couple.

My hubby says they look rustic.  

A few days later Kathy was looking at the Ravelry ballbands and found one where both colors were variegated and realized what a nice combination it was that she wouldn't have thought of.

Somehow we decided that we should close our eyes, dive into our dishcloth stash (of which we both have way too much of), and choose random colors.  My first grab was orange and self striping pink.  I didn't think they'd look good together but they do.  I can see a lot of choosing colors for ballbands this way in my future.
