KNITTING COTTON WASHCLOTHS

For no other reason than to do a bit of knitting I thought I would knit a few wash cloths.

I'm not sure if I'll even use them but there's no Grandchildren to knit for now and I only wanted a small project.

If anything I've enjoyed working stitches that I have never done before.




Apparently you can use these in the kitchen or bathroom for what ever you choose.

Just got back from another jaunt to the seafront.   We were both feeling a bit muzzy and the sea air has revived us.
Back home now and it's jigsaw for Tom and bit of embroidery for me.

  1. I was converted to knitted dishcloths a couple of years ago and love them. I love choosing a new one each day from the pile I've kit :-)

  4. Always good to get some sea air. I was converted several years ago to crochet washcloths and haven't looked back.

  8. Nice colours and stitches, they’ll look good in the kitchen or bathroom even if you don’t use them.

  9. Just the right place to go to Briony :-) The seashore is the best place when you need to blow the cobwebs away or if feeling a bit down. It always revives me! Those washcloths are really pretty a shame to tuck away in a drawer. What about leaving a pack of them on a neighbour's doorstep? :-) keep well Amandax

  11. My mum loved using them in the bath. My oldest son loves them for dishes and kitchen cleaning.

  12. I used to do this too... and would make little packages of matching washcloths and soap (sometimes adding a pottery soapdish I had made) and give them as gifts. They are fun... quick to make, and you learn new crochet or knitting stitches.

  13. Too nice to use as wash cloths. Can you join them together and make a cot blanket.

  14. Those washcloths are beautiful, Briony. I understand about wanting a smallish project to do. I'm going to tackle Valentine's Day cards this weekend. Your household sounds like a cozy place to be. I'm glad you and your hubby got out too. It does change our perspective a little bit, doesn't it. Fresh air and Mother Nature... such healing and soothing gifts. ~Andrea xoxo

  15. I do use my dishcloths in the kitchen. Yours look really nice so I'm sure you can put them to good use. I have so many I've made and no one to give them to right now. As of Sunday some businesses will be closed again, restaurants and malls will have to close early. I keep saying I'll make up little gift packages and give them away whenever I go out but I just don't go out often enough. :/ Take care.
