Do you make cotton dish clothes?
For years my MIL every Christmas would give me dish towels and knitted dish cloths.
I love these so much.
She has sinced passed and I have tried other clothes but none seemed right. I still have one of hers and will never use it. I just keep it in a drawer.
I cannot just sit and watch a movie or TV, my hands must be doing something! At the moment I have no quilts to quilt so I pulled out my knitting needles and got busy.
I made eleven!
I use Sugar and Cream Yarn with size nine needles. I can get two dish clothes out of a skein with some left over. I will mix the left overs to get a few more.
There are many patterns on the web for the dish clothes but this is the one I use.
Cast on 4 sts.
Row 1: Knit one row.
Row 2: K2, YO, knit to the end of the row.
Repeat row 2 until there are 40 sts.
Next row: K1, K2tog, YO, K2tog, knit to the end of the row.
Continue decreasing until 4 sts left.
Knit one row.
This should last a while and besides my hands are now very busy with Katie.
One last thing!
Many of us participated in Barbara Brackman's Civil War Blocks Quilt Along..
Look what starts tomorrow!
Oh I may find myself making some of these too! Click picture for more information.
Have a wonderful weekend!
