Just thought I’d share some personal insight.
For a while now I have been making dishcloths mainly for my mil who uses them and really likes them. I have a dishwasher and other than having a couple on hand for just in case, I just don’t use them.
I made a washcloth out of Bernat Cottontots, which I thought was a nice soft cotton. I just co 33 stitches, size 7 needles, and did good old garter stitch. Nice take along project, no thinking involved. Put it in the bathroom and promptly forgot about it.
The other day I jumped in the shower without bringing up the clean towels and washcloths. So I used my knit washcloth. I am converted! I still can’t believe how much I liked it. I had some liquid soap and used that with it and it held the suds really well.
Now I’m off to make some more (made st st one to give that a try) Will have to put them on my give gift list with some liquid soap!
