Often, I go through periods of knitting washcloths. Like most knitting projects, finding yarn will inspire, and I found out my LYS had all this brandless purple cotton chenille. I never tried knitting with it until this project, and I have already cast on for another project. Having said that, the chenille shed when I was weaving the ends for this cloth. It’s soft, but this pattern has to much ends to weave, and I’m not too keen on the chenille either. I do like knitting cloths though, even if I never use them. I will someday, and I like the practicality of using knitted items not only to wear but around the house.
