    At night I work on these:

    I am not a hand sewer so at night while watching tv I have been making crocheted dish cloths. Hope to have a bunch to give as gifts for Christmas next year, friends b'days, teachers gifts, etc. I made several for myself and just love them. They are quick and easy, only requires that you use 100% cotton yarn. You can also use them in the bath.

    Those are pretty. I am working on dishtowels cut in half and then crochet the top part on so it can hang at the sink or wherever. At least we get something done at night watching tv. Have fun. Sue

    Very nice and clever to have a stack on hand for gifts as needed.

    They are really nice. I got something similar for Christmas once and it was appreciated for its durability.

    Love them, too. I knit them in the car and use them as face cloths as well.

    I don't watch TV at night, usually work on a quilt after working all day. Work on a quilt on weekends while cleaning and doing laundry. I use to crochet but gave it up. My Daughter crochets.

    They make lovely gifts. My DIL has made me a couple and they just wash and wash and wash.

    I really like the varigated blue yarn you used. I make these as well and use them to remove my makeup at night.
