Yes, I am in. I haven't done one before so I suppose the size would be about 8" x 8"? Or around about that?

Me too :razz: :razz: :razz: All so Spotlight has a Gelato 50% acrylic 50% cotton $2.99 plus a 100% viscose derived from bammboo called Alder on sale $2.00 not sure if ever Spotlight has it I think the first one would be good to make dish cloths .

Cotton or linen thread , should be used for the dish cloth , becaues they need to be absorbant.It would be great if youcould join in Margarita.

Linda , the cloth I made is 7"x 7", if you use any of the googled patterns , thats the size they turn out.

I will put the list out tomorrow morning , beofre I go to Patchwork.

Good morning ladies,

I tried one of the pretty ones yesterday, one with a butterfly, and it was SMALL. Now I'm having a go at the one from the YouTube downloaded by verypinkknits, knitted on the diagonal and its looking good. I like this one because I will be able to increase it to a size I like before I start to decrease. Will report back.

I finished my first dish cloth yesterday and have started on a second. The pattern is so quick and easy and looks really nice. I think its the one I'll go for, for the swap.

Marg, I've had it squirrelled away since knitted and crochet suits were in fashion :lol: :lol: There is oodles and oodles of the stuff so please don't buy any. The only thing is it is 3 ply and I think 4 ply might be the go for dish cloths. I'm using 4mm needles (I think that's 8's) and I'm really pleased with how it worked out. I'll drop some around to you later today if you like.
Mary
