Hi everyone

Im really still new to knitting (but i love it sooooo much) and have seen a cloth knit-along which i would like to join i just havent got a clue on what wool would be needed and to what extent everyone uses the cloths for?

Could someone point me into the right direction for the wool (i live in the UK) and in the right direction of what to do with all the cloths i plan to make?

Thank you

Nessie

Start with cheap cotton. Smiley Some people use them for dishwashing, part of a bath set, as a dishcloth.  There's a number of useful things cloths can do.

Brand-name wise, I've previously used "Sirdar Luxury Soft Cotton DK" (quite soft, reasonably priced) and "Debbie Bliss Cotton DK" (bloody lovely! though is a little bit pricey for washing dishes with, save those ones for yourself!) as well as good old "craft cotton" (sometimes called crochet cotton, looks like thick string, though softer, has the added advantage that it can be dyed and is dirt cheap!)

I've used them as facecloths, for washing dishes, and I have a knitted dishcloth type covering for my laminated floor "swiffer" (flat mop thing)

They're also good for practising lovely stitches you can't seem to factor into other knitting, or as a way to practice different techniques   Smiley

hope that helps!
