A Rose for A Rose

My grandma Rose turned 91 way back in September. She'd asked for some new washcloths for her birthday, so I decided to knit some.


I knit the first washcloth using lil knit of this & that's Rose Dishcloth pattern and some white speckled Sugar n' Cream cotton yarn that I had on hand. If you look closely, you can kind of make out the rose pattern on the dishcloth. I wonder if the rose would have been more visible if I'd used a solid colored yarn :/



For the second washcloth, I used a new twist on dishcloth's Grandma's Favorite Dishcloth pattern and the same yarn.This was a very simple pattern to knit and only took me one afternoon to complete.

My grandma was really pleased with her gifts, although now she feels like they're too nice to use as wash cloths. So instead my grandma is keeping them around to use like coaster/doilies. What do you think?

  1. I think those would look great as doilies! The yarn is so pretty it does seem almost a shame to use them for something mundane.:-)
    Thanks for your kind comment on my blog!
