Washcloth & Potholder

Pattern: Potholder from Lion Brand, Mason-Dixon Washcloth from Mason-Dixon Knitting
Yarn: Lion Cotton in Sagebrush
Gauge: didn’t check (who cares what size a dishcloth & potholder is)
Size 8 Denise, Size K crochet hook

I made these for my mother-in-law, as it was her birthday. This was my first dishcloth and potholder, and I have to say that I’m addicted. The dishcloth worked up really fast, and I love how it is not a traditional rectangle. The cotton feels super too! Since I got my gigantic stash of Sugar ‘n’ Cream now, maybe I’ll spend the summer knitting my kitchen :).

    The nice thing about dishcloths is that you can do so many different things with them too–you can make all kinds of patterns without investing too much time or stress to it. Good stuff!

    Yup! I’m totally addicted. Now I’ve just got to really pin down a theme for my kitchen so I can knit me a stash of good dishcloths.

    A really neat place to get dishcloth patterns is at the Monthly Dishcloth KAL – google it.
    Two dishcloth patterns are provided each month – a few rows at a time – at the beginning and middle of the month.
    There are a lot of other dishcloth knitting “groups” – and you can find out about them at this site.

    Happy knitting,
