You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.'

You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

Let's Dish..... (cloth)


It may look like "just a little washcloth" but my oh my...it is so much more! This little knitted square  has been waiting to be made for at least 10 years. WARNING, once you use this type of dishcloth it will spoil you for all others. The 100 % cotton yarn has a sturdy and long lasting texture. It cleans anything and will last forever AND it makes scrubbing a cinch; just ask my husband "Retired Bob", he uses his each and every day with sparkling results. These were a favorite of my grandmother and my mother. After I received a few for Christmas several years back, I vowed that I would make some too. I bought the yarn, found the pattern and  then of course moved on to something else. This week my forgotten project was rediscovered.

One lonely orphaned ball of yarn waiting....waiting....waiting to be finally finished!

 Here it is!  Enjoy it Bob and Oh,
 Happy 39th Anniversary !

I think this might be the last unfinished knit project using STASH. I am now moving on to unfinished sewing projects ughhh (which, by the way there are dozens) . Stay tuned for an array pillows, purses, baby and doll clothes and gasp.....a skirt and Roman Shades? Are they in style anymore?  Yikes!

Well done on finishing this. I've made one (only one!) but my hubby said it's too good to use so it's ornamental!! Take care. Chel x
