My aunt made a lovely red, white and blue dishcloth for my husband and I when we got married. She included it with a beautiful hand-embroidered dishtowel. Not only was it a pretty looking gift, but also a pretty useful one! I wanted more! For some reason, it is so much easier for me to do the dishes if I have a cute dishcloth to keep me company.
This dishcloth is easy and quick. The openness of the V-stitch looks fancy, is great for actual dish-washing and makes this dishcloth work up fast.
When I was little, my mom taught me to crochet to keep me quiet. (Smart woman!) Then, I learned to knit. I love the look of knit clothing, and the speed of crochet. In a few years, I?ll get to teach my girls how to knit and crochet, in hopes it will keep them quiet!
