I'm having a ball knitting dishcloths out of Peaches and Cream in all sorts of colors, all sorts of combinations, all kinds of patterns and textures. The lucky recepient will be my niece who is getting married in October. At a shower for her in July, I intend to present my bounty of dishcloths along with other supplies for hand washing her grandmother's china which will be her wedding present.

It's easy, fun, and a great way to try out new patterns. I recommend it.

I enjoy knitting dishcloths myself, they are so quick when I don't feel like having my mind occupied..

Right now I am working on a dragonfly pattern wash cloth for a friend who loves dragonflies. I find them fun to knit.

Dishcloths are lots of fun. :) And can be used immediately.

I love knitting dishclothes. Along with socks, they are perfect knitting projects.

I enjoy knitting dish clothes too. I go between Peaches and Cream and a cool cotton imported from Greece. (no I do not mix the two together in one project)

I bought a perpetual calander with 365knitting stitches a year.

It is a good thing I do not use it as a calander per say. As of now I have done dishclothes with patterns in April, Feburary, August and May. Have not attempted one from July..I keep track of which patterns have been successful completed for a swatch or dishcloth.

In the length of time it takes me to do three dishclothes I might have a tank top half done.

I like them too. Especially round ones!

What needles do you like for the cotton? I don't want to take my good Lantern Moons and I am trying to decide which to take with me on vacation.....

I hope you enjoy the dishcloth KAL Scraffan and Chayah. The July KAL started yesterday, but if you missed the first day, you can still get it. It's fun to try to guess what it will be. I have Day#1 and Day#2 finished - I knit while waiting for my slow dial-up to load :) The suggested color for this one was light blue - so I'm thinking it's a water theme. I usually use #7 Takumi wooden needles for mine Ceci - but since I had another project on both those and my #7 circs, I put some point protectors on a pair of #7 dpns and I'm using them...whatever works!

hi, Jane,
The dishcloth KAL group seems very nice. I couldn't find the instructions for the very first day, but after searching I located them and hope to start tonight. Mine will be yellow, whatever it is! And thank you for the tip about making needles out of dpns--I can definitely use that.
Thanks again, Chayah

If your going on vacation plastic needles. The needles come in some really different of colors so they stand out. Easy to spot in the sand verses babboo tthat would blend in.

Usually I like Bamboo needles though..

It depends on location and color of yarn for me though..

HI Jane,

Thanks also for the dishrag kal. I joined! After knitting the dishrag in Mason-Dixon Knitting I am addicted to hand knit rags, mats, towels, curtans! I want to do it all!
So I'll start with dishrags!

So glad that you are all enjoying the monthly dishcloth KAL! I'm on Day #4 and it's becoming pretty obvious what the pattern is - but I won't spoil it for you in case you are not that far.
I know what you mean MJB - I have tons of wool and other yarns in my stash, but I've been mostly knitting with cotton this summer. Right now I'm making placemats - the pattern calls for Lionbrand cotton, but I'm using Sugar n' Cream. http://cache.lionbrand.com/patterns/kkc-brightPlacemats.html

I have to print out the Kal from the dishcloth group and do it.
I had two emergency dishclothes to do before doing anything for me!
I had bought red white and blue cotton with the intentions of doing the stars pattern but that never came to be!
Instead I used the red for the fireman hamlet and axe. The blue was used for a sailboat.
The remaining blue will be used for the kal.

Where did you get the fireman helmet and ax and sailboat patterns? Wait until you do the July KAL - it's really neat and a surprise - at least it was for me.
