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.
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.

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.
