J’Adore Tuesdays: Washcloths

I’m in the mood for Spring Cleaning. If you know me, you know that’s weird. I hate to clean. I’d rather just knit!

So why not knit the cleaning supplies? While I’m not sure I’d clean the dishes with these washcloths as they’re too pretty, I would love to have some handy around the house or ready for gifts. Here are the ones that have caught my eye recently.

2. Nubbie Scrubbies by Angelee Marie


3. Washcloth Quartet by Megan Goodacre


4. Double Knit Bird Discloth HotPad Lessons by Margaret MacInnis


5. Bridal Shower Lace Cloth by Cathy Waldie

  1. I dislike cleaning immensely but with a pretty hand knit cloth I might be able to at least give it a go. I particularly like the top two and now shall add them to my favorites:)

  2. I agree with the idea of knitting instead of cleaning. I love clean places, but it seems such a bother to have to do it. My husband says I clean best when I am mad, so he tries to arrange that every now and then.

  3. Those are pretty… I like the look of the top one. I don’t think I would be able to use them for cleaning though! I knitted some similar items a while ago for my Mother for Mothers Day as face cloths. Quick, simple and gorgeous!

  4. Cute washcloths. I love the Nubbie Scrubbies. They look pretty cool and I would use them all for washing dishes. They are the best washcloths. That’s all I use. Will have to try making the Bumpy one and the nubbie one.

  5. Lovely washcloths! I don’t think I could bring myself to use them though, I’d just want to display/gift them!

  6. I LOVE this – was tossing around the idea of knitting for cleaning (especially since I am working through panicking whenever I sit down to knit something larger – I’m still a very slow knitter) & post is perfect for me!

  7. I could never use these for cleaning! I do like really functional things though, so I think I’m going to knit myself some grocery bags. The knitted ones expand so much, it’s amazing how much stuff they hold!

  8. I made quite a few a while back, gifted two and used the other 3 for…yes, dishcloths…they are pretty and they work wonderfully; besides, I can always have fun making more. And I’m with you all the way, knitting is definitely more fun than cleaning!
