I used up all my dishcloth yarn earlier this year, which was a great opportunity to buy more yarn. Mom and I both love these knitted dishcloths, so we each bought a big ball of yarn for me to work. The plan is to spend a lot of evenings watching Blue Jays baseball while knitting us a bunch of them (I can complete one in about 3 hours).

The colour Mom chose is called Swimming Pool (blue), and the one I chose is called Psychedelic (multi-colour). If I did the math right, we will each get 12 dishcloths, 6 of each colour. Fun.

    1. I love it too. It is such an easy pattern that it doesn't distract me from baseball or tv on dvd. And then I find it so satisfying that I spent the evening watching tv but I also made something. Feels good. Plus Mom loves them, and it makes me happy to make her happy.

  2. These look so much simpler than the ones I've been crocheting - what pattern are you using? I love them! (And I could use some dish cloths) :)

    1. I'm using a Bernat knitting patten that was on a label of yarn. I couldn't find it on their website, but found a blog with a really similar pattern here. The only difference from the pattern I have is I only go to 43 st, not 45. Might try 45 to see how that works.

      I love these dish cloths. They make great gifts... maybe even great house warming gifts? ;)
