The Simple Things

After putting together the postage stamp quilt top, I was at a loss what to do next.  I ended up sorting through my fabric scraps and cutting them up into squares and strips.  There are even  a few triangles, so I will be thinking of ways to use them up.

I then came across a ball of dishcloth cotton I bought some time ago, and as I have a craft fair coming up, I thought I'd make some dishcloths.
I got three knitted up, all with different patterns. I really like hand made dishcloth, so I may get another ball and do some more.

Nice face cloths! Is the one on the left moss stitch? I'm making one at the moment out of corn yarn....it's not as soft as cotton, so will make a good exfoliant!

Yes Sue, the one on the left is moss stitch. The middle one has a garter stitch border with stocking stitch centre, and the one on the right is just plain garter stitch

I love doing dish cloths. So easy and you get to try fun stitches without getting tired of them. Plus no sewing together.. when you finish knitting, you're done! Those should be good sellers!

Terry said...

Well done getting your scraps cut up! And the dishcloths are so pretty! What's next? LOL

You're right--there is nothing ling knitted or crocheted washcloths. It's a great idea for a craft fair.
