Tennessee Vols Dishcloth

Wow! It's been so long since I've posted on here that I had to go through some serious hoops before I could even sign in to this thing!

Anyway, I've been knitting as much as I can - and I survived my first year of law school! Whoo hoo! I'm celebrating by taking summer courses. What? Huh?? Anyway, I've been more than a little homesick. The other day I was looking at my bright orange cotton yarn, and a few hours later - I had this! It isn't perfect, but it really reminds me of home, and that's all that matters.

In case anyone is interested, here's the pattern:


Size 7 (4.5mm) needles

Sugar n’ Cream Hot Orange

Sugar n’ Cream White

To begin, wind a few bobbles of yarn in both white & orange. It will make life so much easier! I recommend two small ones of orange (for the small spots under the top of the T), two medium ones of orange (for the outer edges), one medium one of white (for the middle), and two smaller ones of white (for the outer edges of the T).

I know this was a long time ago but, I am curious about the color. I am having to buy orange yarn online and apparently, what you see is definitely not what you get. Are you happy with this color? When I went online to at the website, it does not look anything like TN orange at all. I have bought like 6 different kinds already and am just frustrated to no end.
