Dishcloths

Although I only just started a new project on Wednesday but then I had to start a small crochet project to get me through band on Thursday. Not that I had much time to think it was a little crazy we're only two more rehearsals until our performance and we've got a lot of work to do.

So using some of my gorgeous new cotton I had to start a facecloth/ dishcloth. I like the idea of having a house full of home made and reusable cloths rather than using sponges and paper towels. Then using rags for the really dirty stuff. This seems so much better than wasting so much stuff.

But my house aside I thought these would make gorgeous Christmas gifts with a little pot of home made moisturising cream. I just need to get some more cotton. I think I want to try the cotton from Bendigo Woollen Mills. I've done some reading and it should work great ... I can only try and I've been wanting some of their cotton for a while.

Doesn't this look gorgeous? I love love love the colours. It's my new Japanese cotton (Pierrot) knitted up from corner to corner on the diagonal. Increasing for the green then swapping colours and decreasing. I didn't like the way the edges weren't quite the same between the decrease and the increase section so I added a double crochet edging around in the grey. It just brings the whole piece together.

I will say I am IN LOVE with cotton! This stuff is so smooth and soft I keep rubbing it against my cheek. I think this one will become my face cloth and I'll have to make more for Christmas.

Have you ever made dishcloths / facecloths?  What cottons have you used to make them?

Happy Stitching,
Caitlin
