very nice washcloths. I love making them myself. .I test my cabling and lace stitches on washcloths so I end up with a project I can use as well having all the kinks worked out. The natural colored cabled one are beautiful, they would look fantastic in a bathroom.

I'm actually thinking that I'll use that one in the bathroom. It's too pretty to wash dishes with.

Well, my 18th (and final) dishcloth leaves a lot to be desired. I wanted to use up the Cornflower yarn I had, and that's just what I did. However, it wasn't enough to finish up the pattern. I debated about buying more of that color but decided I wanted it finished, so I pulled out the remnants of the Tea Rose yarn and knit the last third with it. It's a bit funny looking, but oh well.

The name of this pattern is called Springing Up Flowers. The pattern is located here. I used Sugar 'n Cream, Cornflower and Tea Rose.





Here's the completed stack of dishcloths:



And here's the remnants of yarn left:



Thanks for making this a TERRIFIC KAL (my first, BTW!)!!!!!

Nathalie I think you need a thanks for the KAL idea & a for your good job & I think you still have some work to do with those reminents. Just start the grandmas fav & when you use up one, start the next color. lol you're probably sick of them though

Wow Nathalie, that's a huge stack! I only made 5, but I got a little dishclothed out-I made 10 in July so if I can count them, then I made 15!

Yes, I'm sick of these things now. I put the leftover yarn in a baggie and put it out of sight!

I am loving all these dishcloths although I could never use them as dishcloths, I think they are far to pretty.

I only made three dishcloths but did 8 squares to start the alphabet blanket I talked about at the beginning. here are a couple of photos.

here is the last dishcloth in the yarn my kids dyed

here is a close up, still needs to be washed and blocked, hopefully that will make it lay flat. Maisey is already running around with her blanket. will be big though. I am using chunky yarn on a 5.5mm needle and so far it measures nearly 4 ft across.

by the time I am finished it will probably fit a bed.

I am really pleased by how it is turning out so far.

Nathalie - I think this was a great idea of yours.

maybe there should be a dishcloth KAL running all the time as it such a popular thing to knit. That way you could join without the pressure of knitting on a day.
