Ages ago, I knit cunning boyfriend a dishcloth to use at his flat, as he was quite taken with using the ones I had at mine. Once he had it, he wouldn't go back to regular cloths or sponges (apart from when the knit cloth was in the wash anyway) *laughs*
When we moved in together, I noticed it was getting a little bit worn and made a mental note to knit a replacement. I should note that boyfriend does more than his fair share of the washing up because it is one of my most hated household jobs (we do have a dishwasher now though!)
The mental note became a "do this now" note when I picked up the cloth a couple of days ago and saw the state it had become!
Yeah, so that's dead *laughs* I think this is the first thing I have made that has actually worn out too.
So, new yarn ordered, and new cloth created:
Look how fresh it is compared to the old one - I think I need to work on replacing these perhaps a little more often (or at least make plenty so they can work in rotation!)
I went with an alternating pattern of garter stitch and moss/seed stitch for scrubbing capabilities and to keep me interested ;)
I think cunning boyfriend will be pleased with it when he gets home *smiles* I just need to work on a second one now.
I did actually make another dishcloth yesterday, but that one is for my mum who was quite taken with the little one I made her for Christmas and asked for a larger one. So I need a bit of a rest from cotton right now!
