Crazy about dishcloths!

Don't you just love to use a hand knit dishcloth to wash dishes?  I sure do!!  They are so pretty and seem to scrub so well too.  I have quite a few but they are getting pretty old looking.  Some have even gotten holes in them.  I've decided that I'm going to make some new one.  Thirty one new ones, in fact!!  I want one for every day of the month.  I'm planning on using the Grandmother's Favorite pattern since it's so quick and easy.  I am hoping to make each one of them a different color.  Our kitchen has a lot of black in it so I'll probably add some striped ones with black and various accent colors as well.  Should be fun!

First, though, I wanted to knit a couple for Ashley at college.  I was so busy working on her Hugs from Home blanket that I didn't get a chance to get the dishcloths done before we left.  On the trip to Indiana and in the hotel I did get one finished but she can't find it.  We're afraid it may have accidentally gotten thrown away.  Last week I got two knitted up for her and have included them in her first care package, which I'll be mailing tomorrow.  Here is a picture..

I love washcloths like these! I don't know the first thing about knitting, but I do know my mom made me a few and I'm begging her for more. They are so wonderful and I love how she can make them to coordinate with my kitchen!

Visiting from voiceboks! :)
