    Those are always a good project. You can never have too many dish cloths! I hope your neck feels better soon.

    Great job. I make them, too. When I get ready to start the dishwasher, I put mine on the top shelf with the fingers up through a couple of the crochet spaces. Everyone I have given them to now do the same.

    I have heard that they are wonderful. They are always sold out at craft sales.

    Hope you heal well and quickly. I just love those dishcloths, but always thought they were knitted. I could do these. Is it double crochet? It's sure been a long time since I've crocheted! Your work is nice and neat!

    If you wouldn't write it and sign it, don't say it.

    Very nice. What kind of stitches did you use? Would like to try making them too.

    I've also seen ones made larger and used as a mat to dry the dishes. Very useful!

    Yours are very nice, especially your colors.

    I just started back up crocheting again a couple weeks ago too! Now I am on a yarn buying spree. I have made a few hats, dishcloths and am finishing a scarf for my sister-in-law. It is relaxing and allows me to keep my husband happy by being in the same room while he watches TV

    Hope you get well real fast. No fun with neck problems. Nice dish clothes.

    That looks like half double crochet stitch. A friend made me some and I loved them, but when my hubby was the
    cook for a few years after he retired and I was still working I think he threw them away not knowing what they were.
    Have a blessed day.

    I love them, they are all I use. I like to use them to practice stitches and patterns.
