Almost too pretty to use!

These arrived in my mailbox the other day.   Aren't they beautiful knit dishcloths?   They are almost too pretty to use!  They will certainly make the task of washing dishes more cheerful.    I ordered them from the etsy shop of  fellow blogger  Cathleen at My Sewing Serenity.

  1. Yo know since these are too pretty to use you probably can't do dishes. So you might as well go have a cup or tea or coffee and read your favorite blogs. Thanks for dropping in and leaving a comment on my blog. You asked where I thrift in KC. Any place I can find a thrift store, flea market, garage sale or antique store. The one pictured in my blog is the antique mall in Greenwood. mO which is always a fun place to explore.

  2. I noticed the Daisy Fairy on your sidebar-I have the original "Flower Fairies Of The Summer book" from my childhood,60 yrs. ago, it was always one of my favorites.
    Maybe you can just display the cloths above the sink, you don't have to actually USE them!?

  3. I love those! I'm spoiled. My mama makes those for me. I see those pretty pastels and I'm thinking maybe I can request some new springy colors :)

    I say *anything* that makes the job of doing dishes more pleasant is a good thing. Enjoy! -Tammy

  4. I love knitted dishcloths! My mum used to make them for me. I still have a few left but they are getting pretty thin. Enjoy them!

  5. Very pretty dishcloths! Once you start using them you won't want anything else.

  7. Gayle, you are so sweet to mention me. Thank you. They do look pretty spread out on the table, if I do say so myself. They are unbelievably nice to handle while washing dishes. Really!

  9. Oh they are pretty but I would use them as washing dishes isn't my fav thing and these would help. I love buying from our fellow bloggers.

  10. They are too pretty to use -- I have a hard time using the new dish clothes or towels that first time -- I hoard them . . . and keep on using the old ones!

    Pink punch -- it's easy -- a container of raspberry sherbet (I think it was what is now a half gallon) and we used diet 7-up (because it was on sale -- you could use ginger ale or sprite) until the punch bowl was full. You don't need to worry about an ice ring because the sherbet is nice and cold.

  13. I would have to agree those are just a bit to pretty to use! And I must agree with you my ME magazines are too still intact. But I did sell of some of my Early years with the illustrated covers, they go for some good $$ on E-bay. oxox, Diane

  16. They are so pretty! We can all use a bit of prettiness when it comes to washing the dishes, can't we?

  17. Those are so nice. I used to buy them and then got away from using them when the last one wore out. I may just go visit the lovely lady that makes these. :) Thank you for sharing.
    Thank you also for the sweet comment on my post. I am thinking I need to write my posts in the mornings when I am not being so moody and a bit meloncholy. :)
    Even the grands are all grown..and all but the one baby girl live far away! :(
    I am looking forward to Spring and getting out in the yard and playing in the garden.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  18. Those are very pretty~ My MIL makes them and they always look to pretty to wash with, but I do. I kept about 5 of my daughters skating costumes. Kind of a range from the years she had solo's or such in the ice show. Irish dancing sounds fun something I would like. My ankles were always so wobbly with skating. Hugs, Cindy

  19. Don't you just love handmade dishcloths?! I'm a latecomer to the club -- only learned how to make and appreciate such good things a couple of years ago. Makes doing the dishes nicer (a little ;-), doesn't it?
    Blessings,
    G

  20. Thanks for visiting me today! My daughter makes me those cloths and I always tell her they're too pretty to use. She says she'll make more but I love the way they look before they've been washed a few times. LOL

  22. Oh my goodness those are beautiful! That's the same pattern I use when I knit cloths. I love how she did the blue and yellow theme...love it! They are the best dishcloths ever!

  25. Oh, those are darling. How fun. My dish clothes are all horrible. Maybe if I got some pretty ones, I would be more enthusiastic about washing the dishes! Have a great day and thank for visiting us.

  26. I would not use those pretty cloths, instead I would put them on display. But, I'm sure you have already thought of doing just that.

    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a lovely comment.
    Now, I have found you and I'm going to sign up. So, I'll be back often.
