I just made my first dishcloth, and I just can't imagine washing up spaghetti sauce with it!! I don't know what I'm going to do with mine! I was thinking washcloths, but are they really that scratchy? What to do, what to do...

That is my fear! That I will make a dish or wash cloth and then be unable to use it for what it is!

I know what you mean! What about a potholder instead? It's less likey to get dirty.

I got some cotton from Knitpicks and it is very soft. Much softer than the Sugar and Cream is. I can't wait to see how it works as a dishcloth.

Oh I am knitting washcloths too to practice my stitches. Although I haven't finished one yet. I keep ripping them apart. I guess I am trying to make them perfect and not just practice.

I also thought how could I use this for cleaning after all my hard work.

Yes go to www.dishclothbotique.com and they have like 5 pages of all different patterns that you can use for the cloths. They also have a picture of each. I like to see what I'm knitting so that I can hope mine looks like the picture. Good luck can't wait to see what you make.

I'm one that likes to scrub my face. I don't feel like I've gotten it clean otherwise....prolly not all that great for the face....but I DO use a 10 stitch or so cotton cloth on my face.

Oh I just wanted to add that I found out that the sugar and cream yarn which you can get at Micheaels you can also get at Joann. But it's like $1.27 at michaels and $2.19 at Joann. I couldn't believe it. Although I did buy a few rolls at joann because michaels didn't have these colors.

Patons Grace is a dream to knit or crochet with, but I wouldn't recommend it for washing up with. The mercerized part is a chemical process that the yarn goes through to remove "fuzz", which gives it its sheen. It does feel nice to feel up, but I find regular cotton yarn to be softer in a wet state.

I'm glad I started this post! You have given me a great idea. I have a friend expecting a baby in September. I think I'll knit up a few washcloths for the baby so he or she has something nice to wash with in the tubby!

I like to knit round ones (great short row practice!) and love the scrubby texture on my face and body. And they feel thick and luxurious.

Bye bye loofah, hello hand knit wash cloths!
