Glad to know a knitted dishcloth will satisfy the air badge requirements. I'll knit a 10" x 10" cloth to submit soon. Thank you!

Here is my 10" x 10" knitted dishcloth submission. This is a "waffle-knit" pattern, by Anne Mancine, in worsted-weight cotton. Link to free pattern is here https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/spa-day-facecloth.
A page featuring my other projects is here https://www.ravelry.com/projects/EasternPeregrine.

I learned a new skill.  Those videos were very helpful.  I included a picture of my little "helper".

Made good use of our long drive to visit family for Thanksgiving.

I got lucky and managed to hit the 10" minimum even though I eyeballed the size in the car :)

Here's my submission for a crocheted cotton dishcloth. No label because the material's been in a drawer for 20 years or so, but no reason to believe it isn't crochet cotton. It tended to stretch a lot so it ended up a bit longer than 10 inches. (I thought it would shrink, but not yet!)

I actually learned how to knit a few years ago expressly to make dishcloths. I've done a number now, but they are all much smaller than this (3"x5"), making this the largest piece I've knitted yet. I used the needles and linen/cotton blend yarn I already had, meaning I got practice doing work on multiple needles--something I've never done before.

Because the yarn was so fine, this took an embarrassingly long amount of time to knit up, but it's done now!

I see I can't approve a BB here. Because I did not do this BB myself. I knitted a hotpad, with wool and felted.
I think I will crochet a new dishcloth (once, not now) to have this BB too. Although I already have the sand badge. But then I'll be able to approve BBs here too.

It's been a long cold winter in the midwest, time to start some BB's. This is my first attempt at crochet and I used worsted wool. Also, I can link the photos but cannot figure out how to make them show up in this post. Hmmm...

It seems my first submission is floating is space, please ignore if it comes crashing down your way. This is the submission for the potholder, made from worsted wool I unearthed deep in my grandmother's basement. It's snowing again.

The label is long lost, so I can't document that it's cotton, but it is. I hope this washcloth qualifies ;) Fun to see what others have made!

Thanks, E

I used up some leftover cotton yarn for this project. I used the lemon peel stitch for a bit of extra texture

I was so excited when I saw this BB I love fiber arts! I'm pretty savvy in crochet so I decided to work on my knitting for this project.

First time crocheting, it was a lot of fun to learn! Once I got the hang of it my fingers felt like they were doing some kind of choreographed dance. Tension was probably the trickiest part for me. For the next project I would try using a larger crochet hook for the foundation layer.

Finally!! After probably 20 hours of effort, I completed my dishcloth. Can’t say that there will be a lot more knitting in my future. Over 10” in both dimensions.

That's some nice, even knitting, Pierre! The more you knit, the faster it'll go. Your dishcloth reminded me of the first "scarf" I made...that ended up 12 inches wide and I stopped after about 18 inches because it was taking FOREVER. Now a similar project takes 1, maybe 2 hours.
