One of my Saturday at the library knitters had a bag of cotton yarn that she no longer had any use for. I like to knit dishcloths, washcloths and spa cloths so I bought the bag. It contained ten balls of cotton yarn. So far I made a rug and these dishcloths. Two are the traditional and one is the double seed stitch pattern. I use them for dishes and for cleaning and wiping surfaces. The Knit Picks book, 52 weeks of dishcloths is a great resource full of knit and crochet patterns.
