Bargains and Knitting

I have bagged myself a fab bargain this week, well I think so anyway, a trip to the local charity shops proved fruitful this week. The local hospice shop is sometimes the best place in town for my bargains and thats where I got my lovely pinny, I am sure it is vintage fabric, but how long ago it was made I don't know as it feels like new and it was the grand total of £3.00

You can just see one of my new cushion covers peeking out from under it, I made two last week and they really do brighten up the sofa.

Now, onto my knitting, I am not the best knitter in the world but have wanted to have a go at knitted dishcloths for a while, well this week I ordered and recieved two balls of dishcloth cotton and a pair of knitting needles, so I got to work almost straight away and the result is these.....

Two dishcloths, I haven't used them yet but I have heard that people using handmade dishcloths like these never go back to mass produced ones, so we shall see how I get on with them.

Thanks for stopping by, take care

Well done for joining the handknitted dishcloth club!

I did 3 out of one ball of cotton - 1 for me 1 for DD (WHY are you knitting a dishcloth Mum?0 and 1 for my giveaway. I found the knitting so relaxing I bought some more cotton today!

I'm going to be overrun with the things or could be that there will be dishcloth Christmas presents (may not go down well).

Just realised our shared birthday may have something to do with the dishcloth thing!
