I had to try it out, so I went with the ever-glamorous dischcloth. I didn't have to think much and I just whipped one out in front of whatever mindless must-see TV was on. And I think it turned out pretty nice! One skein makes a decent-sized dishcloth.
Then – just because I want to try out some of the fun-colored cotton yarn, I had to make more. These are made in the various colorways of Samoa, which is more of a sport-weight yarn (so you have to cast on more stitches) and a single skein makes a very large dishcloth.
These are just fun projects that let me play with yarn when I want to experience fun color. Yes, these are fairly expensive dishcloths – but I was entertained for a while. And they will make very nice gifts.
For more utilitarian versions, we also stock Peaches 'N Cream, the dishcloth standard. Sure you could get it at big-box stores, but you'd miss out on looking at all the other options, our complete array of needles and other supplies – and of course, our expert advice and counsel. In other words – you're coming here anyway!
