Homemade Wash Clothes

Hello! So glad that you could make time from your day to visit me! 

Today I have some wash clothes to share with you.  
I love having these to use in my own kitchen as well as ready gifts for others.  
They are simple, but homey and stitched with love. 

I like to use the Bernat cotton yarn that comes in lots of fun colours.  
This past month my daughter spotted this lovely light robin egg blue and we had to bring it home. 

The other is blue camouflage.  
Both my daughters and I make wash clothes, and with each of us having our own tension and preferred size of clothes, there is a variety in our home.  

Above is the trusty old favourite that my Mom taught us.  It's just a single crochet ripple where you crochet into the back of the stitch, then all the way around when you're finished.

I tried this stitch called Blossom Stitch by 5 Little Monsters blog.  
I wasn't a huge fan of making this, but it's really pretty. 

I did find a new favourite though.  It's called Farm House Washcloth from Mama in a Stitch.  
I love how simple it is and it has just the right stretch and highness to it.  Plus it's very pretty! 

Well, that is all I have for crocheting to share today.  Oh, the nice long basket I found at the free store was perfect to fit a full size ball of the cotton yarn, so that is now my washcloth making station...where I have a hook and pair of scissors always tucked in there to be ready anytime I have a few moments.  

I hope you are having a lovely day!  
Thank you for taking the time to drop by!

Beautiful colors! That is one thing I can crochet is dish cloths and I make them a lot. I keep some for myself and then give away most to my mom and girlfriends. That second stitch is pretty, was it hard to do? I stick to single or double because I'm comfortable with that stitch. ;)

I hope you are doing well. My boys I think are over the hump of this strep virus they've had, but the cough is still hanging around. I'm pretty sure my house is overly sanitized now. No germs aloud! Ha!

Enjoy your weekend my friend!

Hugs, Amy

I LOVE these. I have never made them but another blogger made me one and I love it! At first I couldn't bring myself to use it haha but eventually I did. Love the colors and variety of patterns you created. Things like this add such a warm, homey touch to the kitchen - a lost art!

Looks like a lovely way to spend a winter afternoon! I love the shades of blue you have chosen.
