Knitted dishcloths

I've joined the knitted dishcloth bandwagon.

These are both knitted from bamboo yarn using the Grandmothers Favorite Dishcloth pattern from here and the Stockinette Triangles Dishcloth pattern from here. They were quick and easy to knit up - each one took about 2 episodes of Greys Anatomy on DVD to knit (so I guess about 2 hours). I think these could be addictive.

They also look lovely draped over my kitchen tap. Now if I could only bring myself to use one and get my handiwork dirty...

I too think that using them would be hard. Not that I've knitted any yet...I also have this thing that wouldn't little bits of gross stuff get in between the stitches? Let me know how you get on!

Jessicah - if they do then you throw them in the wash! (And pick up one of the other many dish cloths you have knitted ;) )

I just started the Grandmother's Favourite pattern yesterday in a very similar colour - we are going to match!! Woo! (OK, simple things, simple mind :P ) I stupidly started a book just after I cast on, so had to finish that first. Will finish the dishcloth tonight!
