Warm summer weather and knitting dish cloths go together like, well, summer and dish cloth knitting! Knitting dish cloths is quick, easy, and rewarding. And dish cloths make great gifts - everybody who receives one wants a couple more, so be prepared to invest in a lot of cotton.
The stack pictured above is a week's worth of evening knitting using Sugar & Cream yarn that I picked up on sale for $1 a ball. My newest favorite yarn for dish cloths, however, is something I tried from Hobby Lobby called I Love This Cotton. It is super-soft, easy to knit, and comes in cool colors. The feel is really nice - very soft and not at all rough like the Sugar & Cream. I wouldn't mind a garment out of that soft cotton yarn. I picked up a few more skeins on sale yesterday for $2 a skein and am ready to tackle another round of summer dish cloth knitting!
