I actually finished this one late last week but didn't get a chance to post it until today. It is using the Knit Picks Dishie I still had on hand. There's a fairly big difference in the size of a finished dishcloth from Dishie versus Lily Sugar n Cream. The Dishie is much softer and... Continue Reading →
I've still been struggling a bit this week, just missing Mom and trying to settle into the gloomy weather. Usually fall is my absolute favorite time of year, but it's been harder to enjoy this one since we can't really go anywhere. So I've been knitting up these dishcloths with this much more spring/summer colored... Continue Reading →
Dishcloths are such great mindless knitting. I've had this ball of Lily Sugar n Cream in the Country Stripes colorway in my stash for a while now. I quite like the way the stripes worked up, and how some of the stripes are not fully saturated with dye. It took up almost exactly half of... Continue Reading →
I started this dishcloth while I was visiting my Dad this weekend. He always comments on how neat it is to watch me make "something out of nothing" when I am knitting. I enjoy having something to do with my hands while we are chatting or watching TV. We've officially reached dishcloth saturation in our... Continue Reading →
I had a tiny bit of yarn leftover from my round of dishcloth making, and I couldn't bear to throw it out so I started this and finished it off with some more dishie in a different colorway. I like to use these mini-sized version of dishcloths as coasters.
Yep, I definitely understand why this pattern is so popular. While I still like the look of the circular dishcloths a bit better, this one is so much faster and easier to knit. They are perfect for stress-free gift knitting. I see many more of these in my future.
I decided that before I get back to knitting big projects I wanted to finish off this ball of Dishie Multi yarn. For all the dishcloths I've knitted up, I've never made the classic "Grandmother's Favorite" so I thought that would be fun. I looked up the pattern and ended up swapping to this one...

I tried to make this one as close to the original as possible, including the crochet border. The border was necessary on the first one because my knitting was messy and my edges looked weird in some places because it was the first thing I ever knit. I could have left this one without the...

These quick cotton projects are so soothing. This is yet another circular dishcloth. I used Knit Picks Dishie for the first time, and it worked up just fine. I really like the colorway (Herb Garden) too. I have way too many of these cloths sitting around my kitchen, but I am not going to stop... Continue Reading →
Some days you just need an easy win. That's what simple dishcloths are for. This one is a double win since it gives me a finished object and it uses up some leftover scraps of cotton yarn. I can't decide if it is completely eye-searing or if it just has a fun, funky Halloween vibe.... Continue Reading →
It's done! This is such a familiar knit, there's not too much else to say about it. The only reason it wasn't done sooner is because I've also been working on my socks. I find these dishcloths really handy so I always like making them. We tend to use them in place of hot pads... Continue Reading →
