Obsessed with Dishcloths!


It all started before Christmas when I was visiting my son at his place. I did the "Mom-ly" thing and did the dishes while I was there and noticed they could use some dishcloths. So I decided to knit them some... Dozens of dishcloths later I still can't stop! lol My friend, Jackie, told me about a Yahoo group called "Monthly Dishcloths" and now I have a support group for my obsession. Twice a month they post a "mystery": that is, a pattern where you don't know what the end result will be. The pattern is posted gradually over the course of a week or so and what it will look like in the end is a surprise. This picture is of the mid-January dishcloth, which I have just completed.
I know it is not crazy quilting by a far stretch but it is done with fiber and needles! These things are like popcorn - you just can't stop! Or at least I can't seem to be able to! lol

That's so funny. I guess because they are quick to finish and you can try different motifs without getting bored with the repetitions, it makes for appealing projects. And so portable!

That one is a pretty example.
