my first washcloth

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading?~ Ginny

I've knitted my first washcloth ever!
-after knitting a vest, mittens, hat etc.
-yes, I know people usually start by knitting washcloths when they are learning how to knit, but so far I didn't know where I would use it.

now I know. Washcloths are perfect for bucket showers. And where do you take bucket showers?
in africa people!
and so I made my own pattern because I couldn't find any chart with the map of africa online...
and it came out pretty nice :)
I'll write the pattern down and post it somewhere...

still not reading anything but school books - not worth posting :P

what are you reading/knitting/crocheting right now? :)


  1. Now that's a fine washcloth! I too started knitting wash / dishcloths only recently and I'm pretty much hooked. It's a great way to use up stashed cotton yarn and cleaning is more fun with colourful cloths, really =)

  2. wow, you did a brilliant job, it turned out really well! the running stitch outline really compliments it well and the heart is a lovely touch. love the color. well done!

  3. That washcloth is awesome!

  4. Great! Well done! When you can't fine something just do it by yourself.

  5. Those washcloths rock. Awesome Jarka, your creativity is inspiring!!!!

  6. I love that! The stitching around Africa makes it totally unique. I will definitely make one or more of these if you share the pattern. My cousin just adopted a boy from Africa, so she needs one for sure!

  7. That looks AWESOME!! Coolest washcloth I've seen.
