Dishcloths

I simply love to knit dishcloths. There is just something I find so soothing - I don't know if it's just because they're so small or if it's because I truly like using them as mug rugs, dishcloths and washcloths, whatever it is I love knitting them. I have been a member of the Monthly Dishcloth Group for many years now and knit several of their dishcloths every year. Here are a few of them that I gave to my mother-in-law.
This pattern with the circles is so fun - I have made a few of these before.
A windmill - love the picture cloths!
Another one with little windows of a different color. These colors are so similar it's hard to see the pattern.
I like these patterned ones also.
This one is my least favorite. For some reason, it turned out wonky. However, I used some really soft cotton so it feels great :o)

More finishes at Tami's.

I am a crochet fiend. But I want to learn to knit and was thinking discloths would be the best to start on. They look great :)

These all look lovely, but I especially adore the windmill, what a great chart! (And nice knitting, too.)

I like dishcloths too. They're very practical and also great practice for new stitch patterns.
I like the lighthouse one ^_^

Your circle cloths are really nice with the soft contrast between the colours and the muted variegation. Love them!

Knitted dishcloths are the best! I love to use them as washcloths, too!

Consider doing away with the new word verifications. They are really getting annoying. I don't use any and have been getting zero spam. The spam filters have been improved greatly :)
