Several years ago, I knitted some kitchen dishcloths for my mother. They were a sturdy cotton yarn and sized in such a way that they could be very versatile. Not as large as a dish towel, but not as small as a washcloth. They are still in her kitchen, holding up remarkable well. She uses them in all sorts of ways. Since they are a thick cotton, they wash beautifully. I have lots of kitchen towels and wash cloths that are well, gross. They are old, stained, falling apart. I have been thinking I should knit up some dish cloths for myself. I always seem to have supplies of cotton yarn in all sorts of colors. I went pattern hunting and found this. I love it. The pattern is simple enough to memorize with enough interest that I don't get bored. I'm sure I will play around with lots of color combinations and sizes. I'm calling this one Fiestaware. Soccer season is upon us again so it will be me, my chair, and these while Carmen practices.
