another dishcloth yarn question -- help!
I found some Peaches and Creme yarn, and some Sugar and Cream, and bought some... have finished one dishcloth and am halfway through another. Then, in looking at dishcloth patterns on the internet yesterday, I notice one pattern (out of all the dozens I've looked at) mentions that cotton will shrink and therefore you need to knit loosely. NOW they tell me :) But the same article mentioned that some cottons are pre-shrunk.
I can't find any info about pre-shrinking on the labels of the two kinds of yarns I bought so I guess I have to assume they aren't pre-shrunk?
Have any of you worked with these yarns and had them shrink much after washing the finished project?
What do you do -- do you shrink the yarn before you work it, (and if so, how?!), or do you knit loosely?
I wanted to make some cute spa cloths (ok, washrags) :) for gifts but don't want to give people something that's going to shrink and look funny after.
Please advise! Thank you!!
