I just knit 10 dishcloths in 5 days and my hand are tired! A friend was going on a trip to the Dominican Republic to visit several missionaries there. She asked if I could knit some dishcloths she could give as gifts to the missionaries and host families. She asked last Wed. afternoon and was leaving Tues. morning. So I furiously set to work. Here's what I did. (I already had 2 done.) I finished the one on the needles too.

Wonderful, what a great idea for the missionaries!

I knit up about 20 around Christmas time and everyone loved them. I picked out pictures and pattern that I thought went best with the person receiving them. It was fun working my kids trying to find patterns for their suggestions! Because it was Christmas we went to Walmart and bought up a bunch of shower gel and lotion to put with them. It's such a great way to learn new stitches!

They look very nice. It's great that you made them for missionaries, who often feel forgotten about.

Wow, I have two dishcloths to finish before Sunday for a bridal shower and I feel overwhelmed. You must be a fast and/or experienced knitter.
