18. Knit some more dishcloths--Check

Since I took a break from blogging, I had sort of forgotten my 33 before 33 list. I have accomplished a few of the things on the list, but several of the goals are definitely out of reach at this point. I only have 2 more months! I have knitted several new dishcloths, though, and I have another on the needles right now. This was definitely one of the simpler items on the list. I really enjoy knitting them, and James and I like using them, so I'm trying to build up a good supply. Since we favor them, they tend to wear out.

This is the pattern I've been using for the dishcloths.  I usually put the stripe off center. I've it made it in variegated yarn without the stripe, too. I've learned that I prefer darker colored yarn, like the one above, as the light colored ones show stains quickly. This is currently my favorite pattern and color combination.  I like knitting dishcloths because they're a very portable knitting project, and they're quick and satisfying.


  1. It's so pretty!

    Dishcloths are also a wonderful way to try out/practice new stitches and patterns.

  2. Thanks for coming to visit me. I like Anastasia's idea - using dishclothes to practice new stitches.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts--I love hearing from you!
