Its funny that this topic came up now. I have spent the summer so far kntting dishcloths because of the heat here in New Mexico.
I belong to several dishcloth yahoo groups and they do keep you knitting. Its fun to get 10 or so rows a day and have no idea what you are knitting. I just finished a dog cloth that way. Most groups have KALs and exchanges going on at least once a month.
Sometimes I feel guilty because I'm not knitting a sweater or something big and complicated. But then I remind myself that I am making them for friends and exchanges.
Cloths are quick and a good way to learn new stitches. Its a easy project to carry around and the yarn is really a good price too. There are plenty of patterns on the web to keep one busy for life.
I also have a pair of socks on the needles. Thats about all I can do at the moment.
I'm happy with my knitting lately and really enjoy sitting down and knit a cloth.

My diet incentive, to knit smaller sweaters.

Hi, actually, I found the dolphin cloth quite challenging. I had never made a picture cloth before. I wasn't happy with the way mine turned out, but I will try again next month. I may try something simpler in between, like the teacup, which I think is very pretty. I also make lots of small projects, hats on round needles, and give most of them away. I feel the way you do too, that maybe I should do something harder, but i do enjoy them and the recipients seem to like them. Happy knitting,

I love knitting dishcloths, too. Great mindless knitting while watching TV, but you've got something really useful when you're finished. I usually use them as facecloths, though, because they're great for exfoliating. I've also used the cotton yarn to crochet a few round rugs for my vintage decor bathroom.

The two knitting addictions: Dishclothes & sox.
I like the one I knit...found the pattern somewhere on line. It has the word LOVE knitted in it. I find it terribly ironic to give a dishcloth with the word love on it LOL!

I have been enjoying the dishcloths, too. I was using one of my sock bags but found that it was a tiny bit too small - esp if I was doing a two color dishcloth. So, yesterday, I made a "dishcloth bag". I'll be posting pics on my blog later today. I even stuck in a pocket on the inside to hold an 8" x 11" piece of paper folded in quarters with the pattern on it!
