Washing dishes is fun {a giveaway}

Ok, maybe my post title is a bit of a stretch, but I am serious when I say that if I have to be washing dishes, I'd rather be washing them with a knitted dishcloth.



Have you ever used a knitted or crocheted cloth for washing dishes? A few years ago my friend, Judy, gifted me with a couple of her knitted dishcloths and I was an instant fan! I love the weight and texture of these cloths, and the little ribs on them make for quick work when washing gunk off of dishes.



For the Valentine crop that Carrie and I hosted this past weekend, we did our 5-favorites-gift-exchange again. Everyone brings five of one item they love (with a maximum price limit of $5/item) and we exchange our favorites. Items range from lip balm to candles to frames and notebooks. This year I knitted five dishcloths and bought bottles of my favorite dish detergent to go with them. It was so fun giving them to five of my sweet crafting friends!


And while I was knitting these dish cloths for our Valentine crop favorites exchange, I purposely made an extra one to give away on my blog. I won't be including a bottle of my favorite dish detergent, but I'd love to share a knitted dishcloth with one lucky winner.


A simple little giveaway, true, but I think you'll like washing dishes with this knitted cloth. To enter the drawing, just leave me a comment here on my blog or on Facebook and tell me who washes the dishes at your house.

I'll select a winner by way of a random drawing this weekend and announce the winner next Monday, February 17th, with my weekend recap.

Our rule is : whoever makes dinner then the other has to do the dishes!
I mostly cook and therefore don't do washing up!

Ruth said...

Ha! It's safe to say that I do most of the cooking, stack and empty the dishwasher and wash up any dishes that don't go in the dishwasher. The Brainy One is wonderful in many ways, but he is not Dr Domesticated!

The dishcloths are lovely.I always, always wash our dishes.

I have never used this kind of dishcloth, it intrigues me a bit. I do 95% of the washing but ohhhh do I think the Chosen One is sexy when I walk in the kitchen and he is at the sink washing dishes ;)

I've never used a knitted dishcloth, but would love to try one.

So nice of you Deb! I'm the chief dishwasher here, though anyone of them may, under duress, threats and hissy fits, load the dishwasher.

Susan said...

So sweet of you! I'm the one who washes the dishes in our home.

Jo said...

They look lovely and I bet they were truly appreciated x

How pretty are these! I have never used a knitted cloth - I might be tempted to hang it on the wall as a pretty thing to look at :). I regret to say we now have a dishwasher, but our general modus operandi is that he or she who contributed most to making the meal does not do much in the way of clearing up afterwards.

Not my fave chore (well, none of them are) but it sounds great.

I will be having a giveaway also on my blog to commemorate my 5th blogiversary, beginning Thursday, 2/13, so do drop by (everyone)!

Paul does the dishes! LOL!
I do laundry. Whenever I complain that I think everyone should go naked so there are fewer clothes, he suggests we eat with our hands!

p.s. what I would really love is one of your decorated dishtowels. . .

That yarn looks so pretty - is it one of those multicoloured ones?

The dishwasher does most of the hard work for us, but it usually falls to me to finish up everything that doesn't fit in there

Miriam said...

My dishwasher works extremely hard for us but whoever cooks doesn't do much in the way of clearing. I use a knitted dishcloths that my mother-in-law makes but they are white!! one wash up and it's in the washing machine!! I would love one 'made by Deb'

Barbara Eads said...

I agree---about the dishcloths. There's nothing like them. I really llke your colorful bunch! l

Audrey said...

Oh my, your dishcloths are ADORBS!!!! Who wouldn't want to wash dishes with those? I'll give you one guess as to who does the dishes at my house.......yes, me. Although I take great pains to fit it all in the dishwasher! Would love to try out a knitted dishcloth though ~ although they're so pretty, I'd probably feel bad about doing such a mundane chore with them. Ha!

I am the only one who washes dishes at my house! I LOVE knitted washcloths. They are beautiful.

JACLYN said...

These are beautiful! I do the dishes in our house, it's relaxing to hand wash them.
