I Used the Hand Knits!
I've been making dishcloths/washcloths for quite some time.. but never using them. Then, this week at work it's been insane, so I grabbed a ball of peaches n cream.. ( I think that's the name) and knit up 2 dishcloths & a coaster.

I used the dishcloth!!!!! I grabbed it this morning and used it to clean the kitchen, rinse dishes.. washed counters... They work awesome!


I know.. I should have known this.. but they work better than the ones you buy!..

Ok, you can lol,, just had to share.. oh yeah, buy the way.. the washcloths are awesome on your skin also, lol

I use mine ALL the time! Make enough so you can change them every day or every few days and you'll always have a nice clean cloth!

It's always nice when we discover something fun, eh? And the best thing is that the yarn to make them is so cheap! Good for you!!

My husband refused to use them. Absolutely freaked out & would snatch it from my hands if I attempted to get it wet. He thought it was too pretty to use! He'd even (jokingly) talked about getting it framed. So I waited for a time when he wasn't around & used it...it was so nice!! And then teased him when he got home. He was so disappointed. He's funny.
