I prefer using something disposable when I wash dishes.
I have been making cotton dishclothes though.
I was trying to knit a sweater with a cotton blend yarn that was giving me fits!
I started making dishclothes in 100% cotton, trying out some of the stitch patterns from the sweater, hoping that the sweater yarn will seem easier after this.
I will give the dishclothes to my mother when I am done, because she quite likes them.
