Also, after seeing the thick, plush dishcloths that everyone is making from the pattern Deb from HomespunLiving has so generously shared, I had to jump on the bandwagon and make some for myself. Well, only one, at this point anyway. But after seeing and feeling for myself how nice and practical it is, I'll be making some more. I really think I should have used a solid color, for the texture and 'waffles' to really show. I used a multi-color cotton yarn, and it doesn't do the pattern justice, I think. It was the only cotton yarn I had on hand, from the Peaches 'n Cream brand. The pattern calls for Lion Brand cotton. I couldn't find it here locally. Might have to order some online. I really want to have a whole set of them for the kitchen. I highly recommend using this pattern. I also found another really nice pattern for dishcloths in my MasonDixonKnitting book.
And now I'm off to do some housework. Then I'll get back to making another dishtowel or two.
