stonewash, in progress

working on another washcloth for the shop--i used to really dislike how tedious moss stitch can be but i've grown to really love the process, it makes for nice meditative knitting and produces a great little scrubby texture that's perfect for face or dish cleaning. i actually took one of my own handmade washcloths and threw it in with my laundry load as a test, and i can vouch for what's on the label--they're good after a machine wash and dry, and hold up well for a good while afterward!

  1. Moss stitch is so beautiful! I don't really enjoy knitting it, but it has such a lovely texture.

  2. How pretty! I've pretty much sworn off moss stitch for large areas because I can't stand how tedious it is.

    1. yeah, i made the unfortunate mistake of making a moss stitch scarf once, if the piece is any bigger than a dishcloth i'd just tear my heart out or outright refuse to xD

  3. I love moss stitch, too! It slows you down a little, but you can't beat that texture. So pretty!

    1. you must have had them for a long time then maybe? i hear of most handknit washcloths lasting for some years if the yarn is of any quality [which it usually is!]
