I always give as is without blocking. And everyone I've gifted them to have been grateful and like them a lot. Dishcloths are such a good way to test new stitch skills.
Mine are all done too. I usually just give dishcloths "as is". I don't know why, now that I think of it, since I wash everything else I give away. Hmmmm. Now I have to decide what to do. Love your stack of cloths.Blessings,Betsy
As is. The cotton really doesn't need blocking.
I am having fun knitting new to me patterns, too. This swap has been a good incentive. Some I block but most I leave as is-they are, after all, just dishcloths! lol
I'm going to block mine, but they are also lace, so that's why. I think it's okay to send them as is, otherwise.
Can't wait to see which ones are for ME!!!I blocked the first one I made, but it really needed it, since it was just a clump. (I think it will be fine when it is used and then washed. I just had it all clumped up on my needles.)
oops I sent them unwashed...they may shrink. That's okay then they are washcloths. Love your stack!
Some how I managed to miss out on the dishcloth swap but when I do dishcloths for gifts I just wrap and give them with out blocking them. They fade fast enough with out any extra washing before hand.
Wow, your needles have been busy! Which pattern did you like best? Your soap would be a perfect companion to the cloths! (I don't do anything special when I finish mine either.)
