I have a ton of WIP's on the needles, but I needed to do something that I could finish, to give me a sense of accomplishment. Sometimes it gets kind of overwhelming the projects that seem to never be completed....some of that probably has to do with the fact that I'm always starting new things....but I knitted a few dishcloths yesterday. It worked for me because I got something done, without having to clean my house to feel productive.

The "E" and "R" are for my initials.

Herel (http://www.jimsyldesign.com/~dishbout/kpatterns/littletent.htm) is the pattern for the first dishcloth. It was so super easy mindless, I loved it. I didn't even have to mark what row I was on. 4 row repeat.

Oh my gosh...I thought you'd used this this! I think it's the same thing.

Thanks! I wish I could come up with something like that on my own....but here (http://www.knittingknonsense.com/index2.html) is where I got the patterns. They are really easy, and quick knits.

Those look great! :cheering: I like the initials. I might make a few around Christmas time for some family members.

Letah,

What yarn did you use? Your dishcloths have the perfect thickness, if that's saying it right.

BTW, they look GREAT!!!

I just love knitted wash cloths! That's actually what got me hooked on knitting. My mom knits them for me and my 3 girls every Christmas.

I love the letter cloths and am definitely going to make them for the girls.

Thanks for sharing your pictures and the link.

Blessings,
Leslie
