The Dishcloth Dilemma

DH: We need more dishcloths.
I just stare at him.
DH: You could knit more, if you have the time.
I then give him The Look!
DH: Or we could just buy some.

Now here I am trying to keep up (but I am failing) with the seven thing challenge. Should I just buy the dishcloths or should I make them? Well it turns out that about 10 years ago I bought an obscene amount of cotton on cones that is still in my stash. So I pull out my crochet hook and go to work. It does feel good to use up stash for something we need that will get used straight away.

There is no way that I'm knitting these things, I've got too much on the go.
Now considering what I charge to knit for others, I was trying
to come up with a price for these dishcloths. While he appreciates the dishcloths, he is not going to pay me $10 for each one I make.

Bunny Update

I was really going to try to go a whole week without a picture of the babies. But today I could not help myself. They are 4 weeks and are starting to eat solid food. I caught Isolde and the kids at luch time and had to show them off.

Until next time
Yours in Yarn,
The Fibreholic

I knit those crazy dishcloths every once in awhile and wonder why. I hate doing them haha.

Ok, those bunnies are just adorable! My duaghter is a whiz at the knit dishcloths. She sits down and makes like 4 in a day. CRAZY!! But, I am glad she does, because I love using them. :)

Well, you know what I'm gonna say about the bunnies. Although in that particular picture if I blur my eyes just right I'm beginning to see some lovely skeins of fiber. Tinly little skeins, true, but lovely nonetheless.

Heh, heh! $10 dishcloths! Wouldn't that be fun! I'd make those all day long if I could get $10 a pop. And OHHHHHH - dem bunnies are cute!
