A teapot that goes in the washing machine
Have you ever used dishcloths knitted or crocheted from that Sugar 'n Cream yarn? I've been making them for years now, and my family and I just love them. They look a bit large when you first make them, but then after you use one a while and toss it in the washing machine and dryer, it shrinks a bit but then bounces right back to become a favorite dishcloth. I've made very plain, unadorned ones, but last night I made this one, and it is also going to serve as today's giveaway!
I found this great pattern here, courtesy of one Stephanie Haberman, who is apparently both talented *and* generous, since she has provided this pattern free of charge. It was very easy to make, even for a newbie knitter like myself.
So if you'd like to make the dishcloth for yourself, visit the link above. If you'd rather not, and you'd like the one I made last night, leave a comment to today's post before midnight. And happy dishwashing! (As if ...)
