I currently use hand knitted dish cloths (just like previous generations used) which another blogger gave me over 18 months ago. These are excellent as they can be used over and over again, tossed into the washing machine and as a result heaps cheaper than the disposable clothes (which I no longer buy). So I was thrilled to find a pattern to make my own and wanted to share it with you.

I think I will buy some cotton yarn and make a few myself. They are far nicer than anything you buy and help the environment as well. Aren't these ones below pretty?
Here is another patter done in gorgeous butter yellow:

If only I could crochet then I could make my own crocheted face clothes
And whilst on the subject of re-usable clothes - are you big users of paper towels? We are, so how about unPaper towels? Its not something I have ever thought of using, but what a lot of money I could save in a year by not using as much paper towel as we do.
