I just finished pulling two projects off of my blocking foam. They are dish cloths…one knit and one crochet.

The knit cloth is from the KrisKnits’ January 2010 Dish Cloth KAL. The free pattern starts here (http://krisknits.blogspot.com/2010/01/lets-start-kal.html). You’ll have to browse through her posts in January to find the rest of the clues.

I used the Rowan Cotton that I had originally used for a disastrous Christmas gift for my sister. I dropped the needle size down to a US 1 1/2; however, the pattern still doesn’t pop as much as I would like. I just don’t think this yarn is meant for dish cloths because it is a thinner cotton. It would be perfect for a summer top, I think.

For the Ravelympics, I crocheted the Granny Square Dish Cloth, using the yarn that my friend, Kate, gave me along with a pattern from the booklet that accompanied it.

The yarn is Lily Sugar’n Cream, and the colorway is Desert Rising. I used an I hook.

The cloth measures approximately 10×10 1/2. I’m pleased since it was my first foray into granny square crocheting!

So very nice, Auburn! I love handknit dishcloths, and of course, crocheted dishcloths are just a pretty, and useful!

Good work!
