My New Knitted Dish Cloths and What I Think About them
September 19, 2022
Hi everyone! I have another finished knitting project to show and talk about! Last year, I decided to knit myself dishcloths. I knitted dish clothes before, but it’s been a while since I did. I knew I would be under a lot of stress in the later half of last year and earlier this year, so I wanted an easy to knit project that comes together fast and allows me to knit while doing something else, such as watch TV. I call myself a stress knitter (I knit to relieve my stress) so I knew knitting dishcloths would be the best project to make when I’m under stress.
After using up a whole spool of Lilly’s Peaches n’ Cream, I finally have enough dish clothes to serve as replacements once my current dish clothes can’t be used anymore.
Here are what many, not all, the dishcloths look like…
And here is what one of the dish cloth looks like alone…
I am extremely happy with the way these dishcloths look like. I’m a very boring person when it comes to picking colors for towels and dishcloths for the kitchen. I always favor basic and neutral colors unless nothing else is available. (Or only the exciting colors are on sale!) I decided to go out on a limp and bought a blue and green ombre yarn. Now that the dish clothes are finished, I’m very happy with the way they look. I’m also very happy that I went with such an exciting and happy color!
I still have another spool of this yarn to work through. I already began to knit other dishcloths in the same pattern as the ones I’m showing in this post. I also decided to knit dishcloths in a different pattern. This new pattern will be better for scrubbing the dishes while the one I’m showing in this post will be better for just washing and minimal scrubbing. Both patterns are common knitting patterns for dishcloths, but I’ve been using them for years so I don’t know where credit for the pattern should go to.
