Dishcloth Thoughts

I bought this yarn on sale for $3 the other day to make dishcloths....

Sensation Bellezza Collection Smania Yarn
65% cotton; 35% nylon

The free Textured Slip Stitch pattern is from Dishcloth Boutique.

With all of this thinking about dishcloth knitting, I had a dream last night that I was writing a book about them. Weird, I know since I haven't even knitted one yet.

Today, I found this Dishcloth KAL at Yahoo. They send 7 lines of a pattern a day for you to knit along with them. There is a blog of their finished projects at http://monthlydishclothkal.blogspot.com/ I signed up right away at Yahoo!

That's beautiful yarn for washcloths! I can see one of them as the April “Mid-Month” KAL – Smocked Cloth - check out the files in the group for it. It looks like butterflies. You can see mine HERE

Thanks, I really like the April Mid-Month KAL that you did but then I saw the amazing Garterlac Dishcloth that you made! Last night I couldn't wait any longer and grabbed a ball of Lion Brand Cotton to start a dishcloth. I should finish that one tonight and then can look more closely at the April KAL and the Garterlac. Thank you for the ideas!
