Stash Buster Knitted Dish Cloth and Swiffer Mop Cloth
OK, so I am taking an online knitting class and finished my first knitted dish cloth. I am pretty pleased with the results (with the exception of the white pointed corner). I will have to learn how to decrease and cast off without a funky point! Any words of advice are welcome! Although this is not a 100% stash buster project, it began as one. I got half way through the project with the pink and realized that I didn't have enough to finish, so I bought some white (the dye lot did NOT match). Go figure!!
After I finished this, I immediately began crocheting a Swiffer Cloth for my sister-in-law. I helped her this morning with some of her cleaning and decided she needed one. She doesn't like purchasing the disposables. They are expensive. Who would? Anyway, I had an almost full skein of the white yarn I purchased for my dish cloth and thought it would work just fine. I typed up my pattern and posted it on my website if you would like to use it.
Hope you enjoy my yarn creations!
