FO - Pakucho organic cotton washcloths
So I whipped these little babies out for dh's ds birthday (we usually just give him money, which is what he wants, but dh always wants to give him something a little more "tangible," so he was pleased when I offered to do these.) I got really tired of working with this yarn, because it felt rough against my fingers as I worked (in fact, I almost felt like I was getting a blister on one or two fingers). BUT the end result is really nice - the cotton is nice and soft, and I love that the colors it comes in is the color it was grown in.

I did the good ol' diagonal garter stitch, plus Chinese Waves and the bamboo stitch, both of which I really liked. I think they have a good texture for a washcloth (or a dishcloth).

Very nice!

I have a coworker that is in heaven since she found out I could knit. I've been knitting dish cloths for her and she thinks they are the "bomb" since I use 2 strands instead of one.

I love the look of the bamboo stitched cloth. Where did you come across that stitch. I'd love to try something different for a change. :D

Again GREAT job on the cloths.

Here's where I got the bamboo stitch: Dishcloth Boutique, page 4 I used Bamboo Variation #1

love the work,
your cat looks very happy, so cute

Thanks for the link, been wondering where to find one for dishcloths etc,
Stupid question, but do u make them out of cotton rather than an acrylic or wool based yarn?
