I really couldn't wrap myself around knitting dishcloths for the longest time because I started to get interested in other patterns but then I bought Mason Dixon Knitting and saw pics of the Ballband Dishcloth...I'm in LOVE. I started mine last night while watching Big Brother so I can't wait to finish. Should be done tonight if I don't slack, lol.

Now I see why you are all addicted to dishclothes. This one is FUN and it's going faster than the ones that I've done before. WOOHOO for fun stuff that has a USE in my house. My other dishcloths have holes in them so big that you can get your fist thru them so they are getting thrown away one by one and I knit more up!

Good for you! I enjoyed knitting that one too, although mine ended up as a rectangle because I ran out of yarn too soon. It also gave me more confidence in doing colourwork.

Yeah, I'm doing it by running the color I'm not using up the side. Makes it easier that way than putting in all those ends!

I really like it so far. I'm making the background black and the main parts are a blue, white, and green colorway. I'm loing it. I can't wait to make more. I'm going to walmart tonight to get more colors so I can make more dishcloths, LOL

I keep reading about dishcloths and have been tempted a few times. Thing is I can buy cotton wash cloths for very little, not sure if knitted are better. I have some spare cotton yarn so I expect I should give it a go at some point.

Oh my goodness, knitted is WAY better. You should give it a try and see what you think. They last longer, can be made in any pattern or design you want, etc.

I have one that I have yet to use that is green with a 4 leaf clover on it with a lace design surrounding it. It's my March cloth, lol. Try to google some cloths and you will see some stunners.

I made my mom 2 with roosters on them because she requested them and I made my dad one with a computer mouse and monitor on it because he owns a omputer shop. Very easy and a fast way to get satisfaction.

That made me realize that I need to get some cotton tomorrow to make the rooster for my neighbor with a rooster kitchen, lol. She'll LOVE it!.

I've rolled out 4 this weekend! I'm stocking up for a charity stall over the summer... dishcloths, tea cosies and some small size socks and hats...

I'm overwhelmed by the range of designs around and am making up my own so I can sell them... but a swift flick through a few stitch galleries has brought up some ideas...

I'll bet! That sounds like a wonderful idea for a charity stall. I wish there was something like that around here. I'd sit there and contribute but we just don't have anyone that will offer that kinmd of program Sad I'm still trying to see about the local YWCA and their knitting class because I'd like to see if all the women there would like to knit dishcloths for he womans shelter or something. We all know they could use anything we give since they leave without a thing but what is on their backs because of abusive relationships.

The stall is once a month in a local museum and I'm donating the proceeds to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust: the son of the owners of the museum (which is itself a charity) has CF and is 21 and doing really well...

Here's a link to the museum... it's the passion of our friends Rowan and Jane... the stall will be in the tearoom in the picture and I have spent many a happy Sunday afternoon drinking tea on the rooftop...
