But sensible and practical doesn’t mean ugly!
They’re purple. I know it’s hard to tell. I was looking for a nice metallic neutral, but found deep amethyst purple. I couldn’t say no! (And they were on sale, to boot!)
Pattern: Ten Stitch Blanket, minimized to dishcloth size

Pattern: Grandmother’s Favorite

These took me less than 2 days each. I can’t help but say, I love dishcloth knitting. I haven’t quite hit the saturation point to where I don’t need any more nice hand-knit dishcloths – I suppose I’ll get there when I throw out all the old crappy Wal-Mart ones and the drawer still overflows. And even then, looking at Mom’s dishcloths, I think I’ll still have a recipient when I feel the need to make another one. (And I will. Oh yes, I will. I love a pattern where I can just grab the yarn and get to it, without looking at anything as a reference first.)
