We always called them dishrags, too. In the bathroom we used washrags.

Thanks! I had recently been wondering which was the nicer cotton. :) Since what I want to make uses the natural colour, I'll go with Sugar 'n Cream.


Our family always calls them dishras too. It doesn't bother me at all. You're making great progress on Something Pink as well. How's the Holey Cable sweater going?

Dishrag, washcloth, whatever. They're so addictive! Easy, cute and everyone seems to love getting them. Cute pattern.

Going public with my inability to find a lampshade pattern isn't helping me! [sob]


Linda - Yep - washrags! I can hear my Mom saying it. LOL

Andrea - Glad to be of service. ;)

Wanda - I've put Holey Cable aside while I work on Something Pink. The rows are just so dang long on that thing. I'm thinking it'll be my back-up project for awhile yet. I won't be putting it away, but it won't be front burner stuff until I'm closer to the end. :)

I'm totally clueless regarding your lampshade problem, Carrie! But I know how it is when you're looking for one thing & find something else you absolutely have to make! ::Grin:::


It seems to me that Sugar & Cream is softer (perhaps better for facecloths?), but Peaches & Creme holds up better to repeated use.

I once made the mistake of trying to wash a white plastic cutting board with a cloth made out of navy S&C, and it snagged a little so there were bits of navy lint stuck *all over* the board. I thought I'd be clever and use tape to get them off, but no, that didn't work and I had to pick each piece of lint off by hand. It was a nightmare..
