I have finally knitted some cloths. As a member of Ravelry I've come across many many patterns. Its not something I have seen my own family and friends do or use, and perhaps its just a Ravelry bias, but it does seem to be BIG in America.
I am toying with the idea of doing a set as a wedding gift for my fellow Woolly Brewer Karen. For many reasons - its knitted, it can be a keepsake and as a wee joke, "its a dishcloth!"
I bought a ball of unbleached cotton and tried out some patterns here...
I only cast on 30/31 stitches and I think they are too loose (my tension again). But they look really nice... I think as a gift for someone who has a guest bathroom or downstairs loo or indeed who cares about the aesthetics of any of their bathrooms... or indeed their kitchen sink.
Add a little bar of soap and tie with twill tape or raffia...
I need to knit another one and try it out on some pots (and spots).
These ones are destined for Burntisland and someone who does have a deserving bathroom.
