What a cool book!

Over the years, I’ve enjoyed making a lot of pot holders, dish cloths and dish scrubbies.

Have been gifted some wonderful tea towels, pot holders, and crochet-topped kitchen towels. (Those mainly from my grandma.)

my second favourite kitchen thing is def towels. my latest favourite free pattern to use is the big mouth.

I am considering this one too!

Just brainstorming here’s a list of things that I was thinking could be medium-ish
Cutting board
Spoon rest
wooden spoons
Towels
Dishcloths
Reusable paper towels/napkins
Butter dish
Canister/ utensil caddy
Cheese plate
Fridge magnets
Chip clips
Mug tree/hooks
Stir sticks
Tea cozy
K cup organizer

Some of them may be considered larges of course but I was just throwing around ideas. And some cheaper and easier to send as well.

Any other ideas?

That really is a cool book @mel

I’ve not really used knitted dishcloths before…do you use them to wash the dishes? How do you dry them? (I realise that these sound like ridiculous questions :see_no_evil: )

2 Likes

not a ridiculous question. you most definitely can use them for washing dishes (some people also like them for facecloths, depending on the pattern, i suppose).

you can either hang them up to dry, or i just put them through the laundry like normal washing.

i gave my m.i.l. one of these almost lost washcloth pattern and she seems to want to use it like a doily. whatever floats her boat, i suppose…lolz

I love cotton dishcloths. Both making and receiving. I tend to like smaller ones. I have small hands and larger ones make me feel like I’m washing dishes with a towel lol.

I crochet and like dishcloths to try out new stitches.

I really like that big mouth towel!

I have some someone made me 8-9 years ago. I use them all the time.

Oh, maybe one of those jars with all the dry ingredients for cookies. Tricky to ship, but might be fun.
