Dishcloth mania

Since learning to knit back in February, I have accumulated a LOT of dishcloths. I had joined 2 dishcloth KAL's, one is weekly, one is bi-monthly. I have learned a ton about knitting over the past few months by knitting these little beauties. Some I was not so thrilled about, some I made a few of. I have given a few away, but as you can see by the pictures, I still have plenty for myself.

I like the quick satisfaction from knitting dishcloths. One or two nights watching TV and knitting and I have a finished project.

I also knitted one mitt, and need to do the other one. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. So that is what I have been up to the past few months. (Please excuse the wayward shoe and the box in the background)

I haven't crocheted at all since taking up knitting, but I am going to start spreading it out and working on both types of projects now that I am comfortable enough with knitting.

That's awesome about your knitting! I would love to learn how to knit and hope to do it one day! Your finished projects look great, wayward shoe and all! lol

I love knitting dish cloths, too! It's a great way to try out new patterns. I tend to knit them in the summer when we're driving long distances. If I use a sport-weight cotton in white or natural, I call them face cloths... it sounds a little more elegant! ; )
