InterNette, those are beautiful!

I have crocheted several cotton dishcloths, and potholders, but I've not knit any yet. I didn't see the point in wasting my time on them; but now that you guys point it out, it does make sense to practice new stitches that way!

Personally, I think I'd rather use them for washcloths, as my dishcloths get to looking pret-tee nasty. :rollseyes:

Thanks Rebecca and Jackie, they are really easy to do, the pattern is called Grandmother's Favorite. I know there is a link to the site on pattern central. They are really very easy and quick. Besides, Sugar 'n Cream is sooooooo inexpensive, I paid 1.99 for 4 ounces and I have gotten 3 dishclothes out of the skein and I am not done yet. The varigated color was 3 oz and I am working on my 3rd cloth now.

Jackie, just to clarify...I am a novice knitter, I have only been knitting since January, so I am still learning so much. As several have said before, dishclothes are a way to work on new patterns and be done with an object quickly. Someone mentioned to Joel I think that cotton was hard to work with, but I have not found it to be, I have found it very easy to manipulate. I went looking for new patterns, and there are a bazillion out there to do. Now if I can just finish HP first......

Thanks everyone, I took the beginners knitting class last month in June and I am having a ball. I challenge myself with the videos and patterns I find. the dishcloths are a good way to practice. I also quilt and plan on doing potholders to match for some gifts. So I am working on a large stack, these take no time at all. Lisa I havent tried the grandmothers favorite, but they look sturdy and will be adding a couple of those also I think.

I've been knitting dishcloths inbetween larger projects and they serve as nice breaks. Plus it's so refreshing to quickly finish a project. I'm saving them up to use as stocking stuffers this Christmas for the women in my family. Some of the varigated yarn looks so pretty with the simple patterns!
