Dishcloths I Have Been Knitting

During the summer, I spend a lot of time in the yard and trips so I do not sew as much as I do during the fall and winter. But I knit dishcloths. I have a lot for me and now I am knitting some for a friend of mines daughter and her first time home.

The pattern that I am doing works up fast. It is simple not fancy. That way you do not hate to use the cloth. I  just cast on either 30 or 35 and knit every stitch until I get the length I want. Here are some pictures.  I use this old American Pottery banded bowl to store mine. I love the bowl.  I buy the big cones of yarn at Wal-Mart. Peaches and Cream yarn.

    Chris I have some of those knitted cloths. And I love them. And strangely enough I have exactly the same bowl. I used to mix my bread dough and chocolate chip cookies in it.

  2. I am not a knitter, but I did find a small wooden loom.
    I need to try some small mats with it.
    Love how you have pebbles around your pool, I need to do that.

    I don’t make them, but I have friends/mil who do, so they are appreciated and used at our house.
    Love the bowl, Chris! That was my Momma’s bowl that my brother brought back to me this past January ~

    You should try the basket weave! Make it more complicated. Do it! ! You’ll never become better at your knit’s if you don’t learn more complicated stitches. My knitting coach always told me.

    And surprisingly, I have the same issue someone mentioned on FB. I knit WAYY TOO tight. The secret is relaxing your wrists!! Knitting is enjoyable mindless hobby. But bores me too much. I hated seeing the same types of patterns over and over.

    I’m not a knitter by any means – my mother was – but I do love to knit dishclothes! I usually change up the patterns a bit so each one is a little different, or the colour, switching back and forth. Besides being fun to do,these knit ones are the absolute best dishclothes you can get ahold of!

    One of my Eastern Star ladies makes these. I really love mine.
    I buy any that she doesn’t have promised to somebody else or to give as gifts whenever we have visitors at our chapter!
    Whenever I go visit somewhere, I take two with me. One for whoever I am visiting & one for her to share with a friend.
    The only problem is that they tend to want to keep both instead of sharing them with friends!

    My mother in law, gave me a handful one day while visiting, I called her a few weeks later and told her I loved them to make me more. The best ones I have had were knitted on a diagonal from one corner to the opposite one. she had made some that went side to side, but they didn’t seem to work as well, and curled up after washing and drying them. Love my dishclothes, I don’t knit……….so I pick up another handful everytime I go to visit.
