Just how many.....

........dish cloths does one need??

It's been some mindless action, knitting dish cloths.

I started out with just one,



but I found the knitting very therapeutic, so I made another, then another, until.......

I've started a collection :-) 

What's on your needles today??

Ha~ need, have or want?
I am with you I have always crochet (so it seems) and a few years ago I started the knitted dish cloths...just can't stop & yes it's therapy! Smile...
I find it relaxing & clicking away, what is so nice you complete them fairly quickly! I also have started making them and going larger for a small towel for a lil-gift! Fun & everyone loves them!

Dish cloths make wonderful gifts! You can also make "spa cloths" and wrap them around a bar of special soap tied with a ribbon for a nice gift!

I am also finding therapy in the knitting. My mom passed away the end of April and since then I can't seem to stay in my sewing room. I still need to keep my hands and mind busy so I have been making dishcloths, face washing pads (mini washcloths) and scrubbies. I have enough to stock a small store. I know what all the girls in the family will be getting for birthdays and Christmas.

My second "Mom" knits those for me and they are the best! I don't knit but I do some crochet. Have not tried one of the crocheted ones yet. I did some pot holders and am trying to make some rugs.

My needles of choice are crochet, but I too have been making washcloths! Baby versions. :)

I've lost your email, but I did want to say thanks for swapping buttons with me the past three months! I'm working on redoing the sponsor spots on my blog so sadly I have to take yours down, but hopefully we can swap again in the future! :)

If I knew how to.. I would make lots of these lovely cloths!

Socks -- the fourth pair since that pooling sock yarn challenge convinced me that I wanted to start knitting them again. But I think I'm getting tired of the k2p2ribbing. I need to start a pair with lace or cables or *something* exciting!

I knit a little and would love to have an easy pattern for the dish cloth. Is the pattern on line?

I sew, crochet, cross stitch and quilt but I've never learned out to knit. It's hard being a left hander. I've never found anyone to teach me. Now that I'm retired, maybe I'll give it a try. I'd love to have a few dish cloths like yours! Very nice!

Years ago I made tons and tons of those. I don't think you can actually have enough...because they make great gifts for visitors too.

I agree once you start you just cannot stop! Very fun!

Your dish cloths are so pretty. I love the striped colors. If you get too many, you can glady send me a couple. I am using one that was given to me as a gift at least 4 or 5 years ago and it's starting to look pretty ragged!! ha. I don't let anyone else see it I'm so embrassed. ha Maybe I'll learn how to do it too. Thanks much.
