Making Dishcloths

I found this thermal baby blanket at Goodwill.  It's all-cotton in a pastel plaid.  It was coming apart on one end, so I didn't feel too guilty cutting it apart to make dishcloths.

I've been wanting to knit some dishcloths, but when I saw this I realized I could make them much quicker by cutting the blanket apart and hemming the edges.  I'll get to knitting some soon; maybe when these wear out.  In the meantime, these will happily suffice!

That is REALLY smart! I don't knit or crochet, and I often wish I could so I could stop buying dishcloths!

I think you've given me something new to watch for at the thrift store!

Very resourceful!

To answer you question about the bird, it's just practice, but I have some future projects in mind!
