Just before we left for our vacation I saw on some blogs knitted dishcloths. Lynn gave me one as a present and I do like it very much. Especially the very nice vintage look :-) Knitting dishclothes would be perfect to do on our vacation.
I read that they are made from very absorbing cotton, and I decided to buy the cotton in the US. Before leaving I printed out two patterns and lucky me on our first grocery shopping I found the Lion Cotton, worsted weight which is highly recommended for dishcloths.
My knitting experience was from almost 20 years ago. I knitted a scarf for my brother (which I never finished.....). Never mind, I started knitting the first dishcloth and it was just like riding a bike you never forget how to do it.
Only I made them with a smaller red strip as on the pattern.... by mistake. I lost the pattern somewhere during our trip. I thought to remember the pattern was with one strip :-)
How do I like the result!
And what to think about a blue strip?
See, I got the dishcloth knitting fever and I tried a different pattern.
