I don't knit, but if i could knit things like this, I would learn.   I like it very much. 
you should give it a try Smiley maybe one day I can create step by step project details hopefully. will inform you if I do one day

Wow. I would love to knit such a thing. It is beautifull.

It is so beautifull i would not put it under the shower for sure.

What type of yarn did you use ?
I'm not sure for the corresponding english term but in turkish we use Orlon Yarn. dictionaries do not help me to find mathich term, sorry Smiley
despite the use of wash cloth, we also sometimes knit just for hobby, or for a gift to marriage candidates Smiley I would love to see if you try this..
Wow. This is really great! I would feel so fancy scrubbing with something so elaborate and pretty. Looks like it took forever!
Smiley yes that is kinda what I feel sometimes too Smiley never used loofah in my life up till now, we always use these knitted wash cloth..In Turkey it is so popular..

you can see more pattern of turkish knitters for wash clothes from the following link

I love your work.  The sunflowers are very pretty. 
thank you Smiley
Like it?  It makes me weak in the knees with its beauty!  That is beyond spectacular! 
wow, never expected to hear such praise for my work. thank, very happy to hear from you Smiley
Beautiful work!
"Wow" was my immediate response.
I'd be interested to know more about the stitches you used in the piece.
Great stuff!
I consider creating a post on my site that I will detail all basic, popular ribbon stitches, and then show all the stitches on any pattern I shared. just like you see multiple links on single image. I hope I can make it work, it just requires some coding skills..
btw, thanks for your kind words Smiley

How pretty! You did a wonderful job.
thanks Smiley

I'm not that well on knitting but I enjoyed during making this one. It is my second ever completed knitting project. We use these clothes on bath but I guess it is not popular in other countries than Turkey. so I'm not sure if you are familiar with these wash clothes Smiley or should I have used "bath cloth" ? mind my poor english and correct me if I used wrong term please.

this pattern is wearable on hand

Not progressed well? I wish I was as bad as you are! Wink

I lived in Istanbul for 7 years, I saw a lot of handicrafts there but nothing like this. I love the other work on your blog too Grin
wow, so long. what a pity that I will be in Istanbul tomorrow to visit my parents and I wish you were still here and had some words with you.
btw, thanks for visiting my blog, there are few topics in english blog but you can find many in turkish. you will not get hard to understand them I guess Smiley
and thank you too much for your kind words for my ribbon works too. hearing these encourages me for further Smiley
