Dishcloth or Dishrag? Or Other?

Recently my mother-in-law/neighbor/great listener asked me if I had any ‘light’ colored dishcloths. I did. But the choice was pretty small as I hadn’t had time to replenish my supply from fall craft festivals. Here’s what was left for her to choose from.


Pretty slim pickin’s. But the topic came up about whether we grew up calling them dishrags or dishcloths. Or was there some other name we’d heard of? Regardless, we know we like pretty ones and my crocheted ones fit the bill. You can pretty much pick any color you like with the yarn choices out there. But be sure to use cotton, 100% if you decide to try your hand at creating some. Acrylic just doesn’t absorb water like cotton. You’ll be ‘hooked’ once you try one of these homemade versions!
