So, I'm in residence in university, and one of our neighbours is a lovely guy who keeps making cupcakes/muffins for our house.  He's into Buffy the Vampire slayer, Dr. Who and a couple of other things.  I was thinking of knitting a dishcloth for him for Winter break - but dunno what to make.


I handcarve stamps, knit and have organic catnip.

Looking for:  ATCs, some dry non-sanded grout mix

Even if you did that and purled the stitches instead of changing colours.
Would make it less darning in ends for a dishcloth and you'd have more of a "optical illusion" kind of cloth.

I did a quick search for ya.  They are all free patterns too.

Tardis wrist warmers:

Dr who scarf:

DaleK cloth(could be used as dish cloth/wash cloth/pot holder for baking):

Buffy the Vampire cloth (could be dish cloth, potholder, ect. for baking)

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

I'm wicked late on this reply. But I had to chime in as a guy and point out that I'd rather have a hat or scarf than a dishcloth. Of the listed options, wrist warmers are the only other thing I'd have a use for. But that' s because my workshop is cold and I wear them when working there in the winter.
