FO Parade: Dishcloths & Dishtowels

In case it wasn't clear in my earlier Finishing Frenzy post, September was one INTENSE month at work. What’s a gal to do when comfort knitting is in order? Dishcloths, of course!

And nice ones at that, since I had lots of well-marinated cotton left over from baby projects for Izzy and a Log Cabin Blanket knit years ago for my sister and brother-in-law.

The only problem? Shrinkage even in tepid water. (Insert obligatory nod to George Costanza.) Never mind that, let's just revel in the before photos...

As for the end result... Well, they served their stress-busting needs so there's that. Plus, there's no shortage of spills to wipe up at our house — big and tiny.
