Despite not actually being a dishcloth user, I have been making a few lately. Don't know why -- I guess the square just called to me.
This one is from the book Mason-Dixon Knitting (by the gals at this blog of the same name... two friends write to one another across the miles about the things that they make. What a fantastic idea!)
At any rate, it seems like every knitter has made one of these things but me, so I took the plunge:
(I also went ahead and took the required shot of "Dishcloth hanging on faucet" even though no dishcloth will never actually hang over my faucet. I guess I was looking for a departure from "Lookie! Here's a square!")
As I mentioned in a previous post, I am a big Cleveland Browns (yes, that's football) fan. Their colors are orange and brown.... so this dishcloth says "Go, Browns!" with every single scrub. Yay!
Meanwhile, it seems like it came out huge, although comparisons to a store-bought dishcloth (thanks, Jan, for bringing that in!) indicate that it's within the realm of "normal." It's a little over 11" square. The pattern says it should be 9.25" square, sooo... seems big. I'll send it off to my favorite dishcloth user and get her opinion before proceeding with any others.
