That sounds like the reasoning that I get about knitting socks, too...lol! Why knit socks for x# of $ when you can buy a pair for $1.99?! Because I like to do it :D ; knitting socks is fun, fun, fun, oh yeah...and fun
I've not yet made dish clothes, but I'm going to because, like Lisa, I want handmade dishcloths in my kitchen...and you can have fun with them and do all sorts of sts on them
and experiment...and end up with very nice dishcloths in your kitchen, right?!
