I exclusively use handknit dishcloths. As I'm doing my least favorite chores, scrubbing dishes and wiping down the counter, I think about my grandmother and mother who knit them for me, happy memories and silly stories. So, though it might seem odd, to me dishcloths are special, meaningful, and the perfect holiday gift.
