Dishcloths R Me

A fellow dishcloth lover inspired me with her recent post about completed projects. So for Melissa, I give you my dishcloths of spring and summer.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go cast on another cloth….

  1. Wow, that’s a lot of dishcloths! Very pretty. I like knitting them too but have a problem with them getting smelly. I thought it was our well water but I gave some to my daughter (on city water) and hers got smelly too. I’ve tried everything I can think of but it seems once it’s in there it doesn’t come out. Any tips?
    (hope this doesn’t gross anyone out!)

    • i always soak my dishrags (and all my other kitchen rags/towels for that matter) in hot water and white vinegar for 20-30 minutes before i wash them.
      i hope this helps!

  2. hooray for big piles of dishcloths!
    they look fantastic kate!
    it’s hard to choose but if i was *forced* to pick i’d have to say i like your playful plaid and the pile of green ones best.
    but they’re all fantastic!

  3. Very nice Kate! I too like the pile of green ones and the berry colored waffle one.

  4. they are all amazing and as a proud owner of one I love looking at it and seeing the love and patience that has gone into creating it! Love them all Kate!

  5. Dishcloth kicks are the best! One day I’ll follow your example and try more than just the ballband…that plaid one catches my eye especially. I’ve already had requests for more for Xmas…one day I’ll also get to knit one or two for my own kitchen as well!
