Agreed! I buy a skein of cotton yarn on sale for two or three bucks, and I can usually get a few dishcloths out of it. Plus it's fun, plus they're prettier and more colorful than storebought... :tay:Nanagail, you cannot buy a dishcloth of the same quality as a knitted dishcloth. Seriously. When you add in the hours of entertainment you get from actually knitting it, the cost of the materials evens out. It really is cheap entertainment.
Unless you start visiting Etsy and buying the handpainted yarns
Hello! Congratulations on your marriage! I hope you and your DH are enjoying married life.Hi kmonokwe...I am a knitter! The majority of the knitting I do is scarves and dishcloths...I'm making some scarves for Christmas presents. But I am slowly learning how to make shaped items (I did do a head kerchief not too long ago). I took a sock knitting class a couple of months ago, but I'm still struggling along with where I left off...gotta get back to the yarn shop and ask for help! Either that or find a good online tutorial...
I got married on 10/17/2008 too!!! :yippee: :congrats:
That website is amazing! I can't wait til after Christmas - I've got too much going on now as it is, hehe.Here is the one I go to all the time. http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/directory/dishcloths.php I am not that good so I stick with the basic but i love that you can make them to suit a person style and taste.
I don't use them to wash dishes, but I use them to wipe down the countertops and dining room table...I knit all the time. I make socks, mittens, hats, scarves, baby clothes and clothes for myself.
Dishcloths are a mystery to me. What do you do with them? Are they for cleaning the kitchen or washing the dishes or both?
I use mine mainly for wiping down tables/surfaces, but MIL uses hers to wash dishes. She swears by the textured ones, they scrub the dishes really well.Dishcloths are a mystery to me. What do you do with them? Are they for cleaning the kitchen or washing the dishes or both?
I am that way with crocheting. I've got several crochet needles and a few patterns I would LOVE to do, but I haven't gotten around to actually learning it. Too caught up in failing my december knitting challenge...I'm a wannabe knitter. I have some books and have yarn and needles and have "attempted" and fooled around with it, but have gotten no where
