A Dozen Dishclothes

Yes, I am knitting, just haven't felt like blogging.
Since these have been given to the recipient will post a wee bit about them.

I have never been a fan of handknitted dishclothes, disliked the wet noodle feel.
Prefer heft and scrub-ability when washing and wiping.
I searched all the databases looking for a pattern which would obtain the hand feel I was after.

Loved the Linoleum Dishcloth immediately. Quickly fell in like with the BallBand Dishcloth.

Decided to try both but downsized to a size 5 needle.
This created the feel I was looking for. Yes!

Other cloths were worked with stitch patterns from Harmony Guide Knit and Purl, always with a garter stitch border.

Pattern Source: Mason Dixon Knitting, Harmony Guide Knit/Purl Stitch Guide
Yarn: Peaches-Cream, Sugar-Cream, Lion Cotton
Needles: Crystal Palace Bamboo 5
For: Friend Jill
