Hey guys! I'm pretty new to the forum & knitting as well. Last week I worked on some practice pieces learning how to do knit stitches & purl stitches. I came across some patterns for dishcloths (3 patterns total). This is the first one and also my first EVER completed item! I'm so excited! :happydance:

Yay- great job! You've only been knitting a week! Great progress!

My little sister lives near Tyler TX & is always looking for people to knit with- she is the dishcloth queen! (made us all sets for Christmas- love them!)

That's awesome! I live N of Tyler & work S of Tyler so I'm pretty much all over this place! HAHA! I'm hoping to get good at these. Each pattern is a little more complex. I plan on giving them as gifts too. :)

That's a really pretty dishcloth! If you have to wash dishes, might as well have a pretty dishcloth to do them with, eh? LOL I learned how to knit on dishcloths. They're the perfect learn-to-knit item, in my opinion. Small enough you don't get bored, quick enough to get fast satisfaction in finishing a project, perfect for testing out new stitches/patterns... and if you mess it up or it doesn't look perfect in the end, it's still completely useable!

Congratulations... your first FO... it is a great moment but watch out, you are now hooked for life... :teehee:
All kidding aside... you've done a great job on it. Your stitches look nice and even and the piece is square... You have every right to be proud of it.
Bravo! :thumbsup:

Great job!!! As others have said, you are now hooked. Making dish or washcloths can be very addicting. They are so pretty, fun to use, quick to complete and make wonderful gifts!

Wow! I'm impressed. Your first knitted project is very polished! Mine were a mess and didn't look nearly as nice as yours. Congratulations on a great job!

I love this pattern! And, you will never ever regret making dishcloths! They are so much nicer in the kitchen than store-bought! Custom Cloths, that's what I call 'em. And they make such nice gifts, too! Think about making several...along with maybe a scrubbie or two...and tie a little bundle together with raffia ribbon and gift them to someone special! If you find a pattern that is lacier, you could gift them as 'spa cloths' and add a bar of soap to the bundle!
