Annual Dishcloth Swap
|Last Year's Dishcloths|
What? A DISHCLOTH swap? Huh? Why would I swap a shmata (rag) with my friends? Because 100% cotton knitted and/or crocheted dish cloths are awesome. That's why!
Other than the fact that cotton dish cloths are lovely to use, they are reusable and good for the environment. If you use a soft cotton, they are excellent to use for spa cloths on your tender skin. If you use an everyday cotton yarn like Peaches & Cream and add some ribs and bumps to your pattern, these cloths make excellent scrubbers for dirty pots and pans.
They make excellent gifts paired with soap. Oh! You can make them using all kinds of PRETTY COLORS. This will cheer up the spot next to your sink, whether it's in the kitchen, laundry room or bathroom!
