Little kitchen helpers

Knit......
Or.....
Crochet????

I used to crochet these little dishcloths before I learned to knit.  They are a great way to practice stitching!

Just wondering if my friends in blog land have a preference?

Do you like them knit?
Or crocheted?

I think I like mine knit!
I'm very tempted to UN-crochet the ones I have finished and RE-Do them with some knitting needles. 
;)
Don't let me influence your vote!

I added a wooden spoon (decorated a bit with my wood burning tool) and am giving this to my neighbor for being a GOOD neighbor!
Just a little tiny something to say "thank you!"

  1. I much prefer knitted dish cloths. They are softer and make it easier to clean dishes and counter tops. Your decorated spoon and knitted dish cloth make a lovely gift.

  2. I vote for crochet, since I am quicker at that. When I give them as gifts, I get two reactions."Oh, you made that. Oh, no, I 'll never use it. It is too pretty." Or, "Oh, thanks for the potholder!" Hugs, Linda@Wetcreek Blog

  3. I love the knit version! The diagonal grain and built-in edging make them really snazzy. But I certainly wouldn't turn up my nose at the crochet version, if someone gave them to me as a gift! I think I'd like to try using it as a washcloth in the bath. Wouldn't that feel lovely?

  6. I would just like to learn to make either one. I love them both and I can't crochet or knit.

  7. I like them both ways...and I knit and crochet them often. Mindless and relaxing.

  8. I like them both. I have used both in the kitchen and am happy with them. I will admit that the ones I use in the bath are knitted, for some reason they are a bit softer. Did you come up with the diagonal pattern or is it somewhere I can find it. I like the finished edge. Very nice.

  14. I like the LOOK of the stitches on knit best, but I only know how to crochet (however I'm not very good at it), so either one is great in my opinion! haha

  16. I knit mine and love them that way. There are some great sites with patterns out there too. I want to try some patterns this winter with solid colors. I printed off a piggy and some dog paws etc.
    would make a cute giftie with a fancy schmancy soap etc.

  17. My mom and I both prefer the knit dishcloths compared to the crochet dishcloths because the knot ones seem to be thinner and not so heavy and still absorb the same amount of water and do a great job on washing dishes and cleaning off counter tops etc.

  18. I love the knit dish cloth so easy and fast to knit.

  19. I prefer my dishcloths to be be knit. I think they are a little less bulky than the crocheted ones. In fact, I learned to knit for the sole purpose of being able to make knit dishcloths!

  20. I like the knit ones. Before I could knit I made some crochet dish cloths and after the second one I never made anymore. I started making dishcloths to practice my knitting and I can't quit and I love the diagonal pattern. I give most of them away but I really like using them too..
