For some reason, the idea of handmade dishcloths has
come up a lot lately. I think it started in a discussion I had
with a friend about how each person seems to have different
kitchen-cleaning tools and preferences. There's the sponge,
the dishcloth, the scrubby sponge, the plastic mesh scrubby, etc.
I like to use scrubby sponges (yellow sponge w/ green scrub)
for washing dishes and use dishcloths for wiping down counters.
As I was getting ready to knit up some dishcloths but couldn't
find my knitting needles, another friend told me she had just
learned to crochet them. So I tried that instead.
Turns out you can crochet them about any which
way you want as long as you use COTTON yarn.
It's way more absorbent than acrylic. And also much
harder to find. But it has a nice, natural feel to it.
