Just before Christmas, while watching me knit a new dishcloth for my kitchen, a friend suggested that this year’s gift for my girlfriends ought to be dishcloths. That seems like a pretty unexciting gift to me—here, go wash some dishes. But several other friends quickly chimed in that they, too, would be very happy having some knit cloths.
So I knit, and knit, and knit like the wind until six coordinating sets of dishcloths were stacked and ready to go. Each set has one entirely made of variegated yarn and one made in white with a stripe of the variegated to match.
These are only four of the six sets, as the other two were not finished at the time of photo-taking.
I used my favorite pattern, which you can find here. And now I’m using all the leftover yarn to replace my own dishcloths that had started getting old and gross. Whee!
