I haven’t done much knitting since Finn joined the family – yarn is something he’d love to get his paws on. I thought maybe some knitted washcloths would be a quick easy project and the place I found to donate scarves to also requests washcloths so it would be easy to send them along. 

I’d tried to talk my sister into learning to crochet and bought her some yarn, a hook, and a book to make dishcloths but she never got into it so I asked for it back the last time I was there if she wasn’t going to use it. 

I’m planning to find some ones to knit but the book and the hook were right in with the yarn so I decided I’d crochet a couple today. It’s a worsted weight cotton yarn and a size I hook.


And I did finish the 2nd one and the ends are already woven in.

    I like making scarves and dishcloths too. Yours are lovely with the striped yarn. The dishcloths I have been making lately have been knitted with 2 strands of #10 crochet cotton and I like them better than the worsted cotton. They take a little longer to knit, but I find they last longer. The pattern is free on Ravelry called “Not Your Ordinary Dish Cloth”.

    Pretty yarn! Yarn/patterns are something I am drawn to…but doing it, that has to happen in the fall for me. Usually fabric/quilting overrides the urge. I’d love to be involved in a class with dedicated time for it. Will check out the local libraries again. Very worthwhile idea. Two of my friends knit, I mostly crochet (self-taught), need that help with questions periodically. I’ll live vicariously through your projects. 🙂

    Proud of you for weaving in the ends right away! I know that’s not something you enjoy doing.
