dishcloths




As stated in previous posts, I have taken some knitting classes recently and have a few things on the needles--just like with quilting, I have several going at once! Bad habits die hard, but knitters have a really good rationalization-keepping projects using different size needles and yarns going simultaneously is a GOOD thing because switching between them gives your hands a 'break' ! Gotta Love it!!

One of the things that I have started doing is a weekly dishcloth (from a yahoo group). This gives me something small, 'quickly' finished, economical (cotton yarn) and useful while I practice and learn new stitches and techniques. The pictures show the first couple of cloths that I have done-a third is on the needles and about half finished.

I have bookmarked patterns for the knitted dishcloths and intend to make some. How are they for actually washing dishes? Yours look real nice, and make me want to get started.

My mom makes these and I am the lucky recipient of some of them. They are great for washing dishes. Yours are great.
