  Monday Morning Mirth  


I used to hate washing dishes until I used a handknit cloth that I got as a prize at a church potluck…

I was lucky enough to get these at the Trufant Flea Market from a lady who makes and sells vegetables and more.

Feel the Love…

    I shared your dislike of the dishcloth, but I am coming around. I have the start of one buried somewhere. Yours look so lovely — so bright and cheery.

    That’s my all-time fave dishcloth pattern. I have several of them and I have loved them to shreds–I always seem to need more of them!

  3. Jennifer says:

    I like that pattern. I made a bunch of them for Christmas gifts last year. Now with MDK, washcloth fever seems to have hit!

    Did you see the one I’m working on for Supergirl? The martini one? lol

    Ha! Another knitter succumbs to the knitted dishcloth!

    I am such a convert!

    I finished my CeCe sweater, using three skeins of Brown Sheep cotton Fleece. I love it! Thanks for the great pattern!

    I love knitting dishcloths! I find dishcloths to be the perfect instant-gratification project. I have made those as baby washcloths too.

  8. Chris says:

    Do you just buy them, or do you knit some of your own?

  9. rb says:

    I wouldn’t be able to convince myself to spend what little knitting time I have knitting discloths, but BUYING them already knitted seems an excellent idea!

    And, oh, by the way, Colin Firth.

    I haven’t knit any YET – and I certainly have some Sugar ‘n Cream languishing in my stash just waiting for their moment in the sink…

    Lucky for me, I found the Vegetable Lady at the Flea Market – totally winWin :)

    And btw – Colin Firth WOULD’ve made the Da Vinci Code BEARABLE –

    I made my first dishcloth this weekend. Fun stuff! Mine shrunk a lot when I dried it though.

    I have the yarn and the desire to make the cloths, now I just need to find the time! :)
