So I had this crazy idea that for Christmas, I would knit friends and family dishcloths. Inspired by the Mason Dixon book I set off to get some nice cotton in blues and greens.

Not one, but TWO per person/family - for a grand total of 14 dish cloths. Good thing they were fun and fast to make.

By dishcloth number 10, I was getting a little tired of them, but plugged away. What I did notice is that using a variegated color doesn't work as well, for me at least. I've seen some nice results (don't remember where) but it the knitting mojo wasn't there for me.

In the end, all 14 dishcloths were done, and number 13 with the variegated green ended up in my kitchen. Even though my kitchen is in blues, I just didn't feel right giving it to anyone, so it's being used and abused by D and I.
