I do love quick and easy projects.

While Rick and I were staying at my sister-in-law's house this weekend, I noticed a tan washcloth in the sink. It was the one I made for her for Christmas last year, when I gave gifts of hand-made soaps, lotion, and washcloths. I was so excited to see it because it was ACTUALLY BEING USED!

Most of my family members never use the items that I make. Soaps sit in their wrapping for months and months, which is a shame because I don't use preservatives and all the scent will leave the soap in a couple of months. My mother's Christmas washcloth sits as a make-shift doily on her antique ironing board.

My sister-in-law says that she likes her hand-knit washcloth the best because it has some tooth to it and scrubs better than her other ones. And her brother-in-law (my SIL's BIL) has even requested some for himself!

Remember me saying that after Christmas, the knitting would be all about me, me, me? I guess I'm going to postpone that for a week or so. I always seem to have some Sugar 'N Cream Cotton laying around, so I'm going to whip up a few more washcloths before my excitement over washcloths peters out!

I use your stuff, I use your stuff *wiggles hand in air* :D

Although your washcloth still sits on my desk to keep my drinks and stitch markers and whatnot sliding off, but, it's used :D
I have knitted several washcloths that I never use. I can't bring myself to soil them in any way. Well, that may change sister confiscated (with my permission) two of my washcloths while she was rooting around in my knitting. lol I'll have to ask her later how they hold up.
I had planned on some (what I thought) was really cool knitted gifts for the in-laws. But just last week, I was told that they wouldn't be appreciated, nor would they be enough. This is from my sister-in-law. So, when we head there this weekend, for the "second Christmas", I will be feeling pretty bitter!

I'm glad your stuff was appreciated!
