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.
