knitted dishcloths

here are my knitted dishcloths, the first ones i've ever made. just a simple knit stitch throughout, but with a nice hand and (even better) handmade. sweet.

Sunday, July 31, 2011


i've been knitting dishcloths. so far, i've made two of them, one out of natural (non-bleached) cotton and one out of a blue-green cotton yarn that i hand-dyed. i'm a slow knitter but the situation has reached a critical state in the kitchen: only one dishcloth has (nearly) no holes in it. the other dishcloths are more hole than dishcloth and washing dishes, wiping counters and tidying up with them is a frustrating affair. the knitting has proven to be very meditative and as i'm only doing a knit stitch i find i can also watch a bit of original Star Trek as streamed via Netflix. score.
