In the cold depths of this Minnesota winter, I’ve started building the inventory for the summer farmer’s markets. It helps to at least plan for warmer weather!
First on the list is cotton dish cloths. While not in my repertoire of alpaca fiber products, they are quick and fun and sell pretty well, so I buy 100% un-mercerized cotton yarn on cones. Last year I knit about 12 cones. Since those dish cloths are nearly sold out, I have 14 cones for this year.
I get about 18 – 20 dishcloths from each cone. Do the math… that is a lot of dishcloths!
Up first is a variegated blue / violet color.
As I finish each color, they will be available online for $3.50 each. They make great bridal shower gifts. And any encouragement to continue knitting is much appreciated by me!
