Knitted Textured Dishcloth AKA Ball Band Dish Cloth

Has anyone ever made the Knitted Textured Dishcloth AKA Ball Band Dish Cloth? The pattern is found on the back of the label on Peaches & Cream yarn. What is the trick to changing colors so much? I know how to change colors, but it seems silly to change so much. Do you weave in the ends as you go or do you go back and weave them all in after you complete the dishcloth?

If anyone has any suggestions, please, please, please, please share them. I am an open book.

Mushrooms & Tawashi

I just agreed to make a gift for my sister to give to her bff. She wants the Mario Bros. Mushrooms that can be found here. She wants all 4 of them, hopefully, by May 21. I could only find the yellow color in cotton yarn (yuck!), so I decided to go ahead and do all of them in cotton. FYI: cotton yarn is not good for amigurumi.

So, to distract myself for a few minutes, I made a tawashi. Pattern can be found here. I just happened to have the yarn they used in the demo, so I knew exactly how it would turn out. You can see the one I made below. Doesn't look horrible. Can't wait to use it. 

Keep on Krafting.
