my dishcloths

I used a couple of my newly crocheted dishcloths tonight I made some about the size of a large round coaster and they are so neat to use in glsses etc. I like them better than the usual large square ones

Minnie, I'm with you. Most of the crocheted ones are just too bulky for my taste and impossible to wring out. Sounds like a good idea. Any photos?

I love crocheting dishcloths too. I'd love to see pictures!
They are quick and so easy to do! Instant gratification!

I'll take some later. My stash of the discloth yarn is almost gone thank goodness since it is so addictive and so easy to use. I'm now doing a mat for my computer chair with a dark green.

Lovely! I make a lot of dishcloths too. I keep them around as gifts to include in packages I send to others. People really like getting a homemade dishcloth! Nothing like them!

The trouble with making dishcloths is they are fun and fast although on the round ones you have to keep counting between the increases .

I knit mine. They are "no brainers", as I don't need to think, nor look, when I do them. I almost always have one going, and I usually have a stash to give away.

Kind of low right now, as I gave 7 to our former exchange student, when she came to visit, and another 2 for her to take with her to her "other mom" she is visiting right now. I need to make more.

You have quite a collection there.
