I made my first ever washcloth tonight, finishing up while watching Doctor Who. I don’t know why I don’t make more of these. They’re so fast! And useful! Two of my favorite things when it comes to knitting.
Until recently I had never used a handmade washcloth, and I used to wonder why people bothered making them. But seriously, they’re quite good! Liane gifted us two as part of a baby gift and they’re awesome. Boo and I both love them. Clearly we need more!
This one is actually special and not for general purpose use. I think el bebe is starting to teethe a bit and I thought it would be nice to have an organic cotton washcloth to do the whole “freeze a wet washcloth” trick for him. Except I don’t have an organic cotton washcloth. But I do have some leftover scrap organic cotton yarn! (From the Boo’s baby blanket — eons ago!)
So yesterday I dug it out and it’s turned out to be more than enough. Maybe even enough for two! Very cool. Going to wash this quick and get it in the freezer.
