Dishcloth mania

Sometime last week  the last of my knitted dishcloths bit the dust .  I dug into the stash for yarn and hit the ravelry pattern page to find a pattern to knit a new one . Previously I've almost always done just a plain old garter stitch cloth , but that was getting tired and boring to knit .I mean , it's a very nice pattern , but a girl needs a change every so often . I found this super little pattern by Leah Michelle called the Boxy Dishcloth and it has become the new favourite . I'm like the kid with a new toy , I knit one up in double quick time and cast on for another . The plan is to have seven cloths knit by the end of the weekend . I'm working on number six , the first one is already in use . Mike is going off roading with the boys tomorrow , so I'll have a little time to myself . The plan is to finish off the last of the dishcloths and maybe spend a little time outside by the pool with a book and a glass of ice tea . Add in a bike ride and you have a perfect way to spend a summer day .

Have a wonderful weekend !

cute - I have to make some new ones - the ones my best friend made me as a housewarming gift 5 years ago have all disappeared!

That's a great pattern that went right into my Ravelry queue. Looks like the ridges would make a nice scrubby texture.

I too have downloaded the pattern for future use! Getting tired of my idiot dishcloth pattern so this will be a nice change!

I'll have to try that pattern, too. I usually use the small arrow cloth pattern, it'd be nice to try a different one.

I was just thinking today that I needed to start making dishcloths to have for Christmas gifts. I am going to take a look at this patten now. Thanks!
