Now having a break from dishcloths for a little while (I seem to have got that out of my system).
I want to try and make 52 dishcloths this year.  So far I have knit 18..so well on the way.
With the weather starting to cool down a little bit (although it hasn't really been a hot Summer), I can knit with wool again and not be so hot.

Coffee Cup Dishcloth

I am obsessed with knitting dishcloths at the moment.
Not only are they an easy project to pop into your handbag, these things are great when doing the dishes or dusting a surface.
Here is the coffee cup design by Enid Danforth



Yarn: Sirdar Pure Cotton
Needles: 4mm.

I love this design and the wool, but I think I needed to use smaller needles to really make the design pop.  May try it again in the near future.
