I have been enjoying the dishcloths, too. I was using one of my sock bags but found that it was a tiny bit too small - esp if I was doing a two color dishcloth. So, yesterday, I made a "dishcloth bag". I'll be posting pics on my blog later today. I even stuck in a pocket on the inside to hold an 8" x 11" piece of paper folded in quarters with the pattern on it!

I have been hooked on knitting dishcloths too. So far my favorite one to knit is the Mason Dixon ballband. Once I start knitting those the pattern is easy to memorize and so I can knit them fairly quickly. Although, the last one that I did I ended up reversing the rows for the last band row.

I did get my daughter hooked on them though. She's 13 and is the head dishwasher in the family. I gave her the one MD ballband that I just completed and she's hooked on using it. She says that it worked so much better than the other one. Now, let's see if the rest of the family will become converts. She also loved the pattern and the colors that I chose.

I have some nice Italian cotton that I am planning on stitching up next that is just screaming at me for this one particular pattern.

Ana, Have you seen the blog the Mason-Dixon KAL. Someone use the ballband dishcloth and enlarged it for a rug.

Wanda- I saw that. I thought that looked awesome and am thinking about doing one also. I have that site bookmarked it is awesome. Someone a little while back also posted a picture of some handtowels worked using the ball band pattern.

Just a thought, I have got a few years before she will be getting married I am beginning to see a ton of ballbands in that young ladies future.

One of my future goals for her, teach her how to knit!

Someone else turned it into a purse. It's amazing how much creativity the Mason Dixon books have sparked!

Hi Everyone,
I think I came to the right area to get an answer. I am looking for a pattern for a flamingo dishcloth.
Does anyone have an idea where I can find one?
Thanks
