Christmas Quilt-a-long Evening Wrap up Session 3

Let's see after lunch I kitted one of these.  My DH told me many months ago that he prefers the dishcloths I knit to the ones we buy, something about more scrubbing power, so he's getting a pile of them for Christmas these are #1 and #2 (the first one I made a month ago) and I rolled the yard to make two more.

I also made 8 items all the same that you use around the house, but I'm not posting those yet.  Yes I do feel a bit odd that I spent the afternoon of a quilt along knitting, but it was nice to sit on the couch a while and watch some of the sewing shows that had built up.

LOL!  I just noticed that the yarn ball I worked so hard to make look like a ball actually looks rather egg shaped.  Oh well.

Knitting works for me!! These days are motivating, aren't they? The dishcloths look great..I, too, prefer them to store bought ones!!

These are very handy. I did a few for Christmas gifts last year. Nice yarn for it - Hugs Nat

I've had a couple of knitted discloths as presents from students and I loved them.

The only thing I have successfully knitted was a dishcloth.
