Here are a batch of knit dishcloths for my Mum's birthday as part of our Year of Homemade Gifts. We've even recently started a craft-a-long for other's who are doing a Year of Homemade gifts!

Anywho - here's 4 dishcloths, 2 are the "regular" knit corner to corner... not very exciting but super useable. Then I did a basketweave one and one with bobbles, and this was my first time ever knitting bobbles, so that was exciting too!

Here they be!





C&C welcome!

p.s. I LITERALLY just got off the phone with my mom where we decided that this year, every Christmas present has to be homemade. CUH-RAZY!

Those are fabulous!  I love the corner to corner ones, too.  I always make a few for my mom for Christmas - she loves them!

I use handicrafter 100% Cotton. It's nice. You have to deal with the slightly icky feeling of knitting with cotton, but it holds up well for dishcloths.
