A dear friend of mine, Juanita, has been knitting these cute dish cloths for a long time. She makes them from 100% cotton, so they are just perfect for absorbing water and using in the kitchen. I had her make me some in red to match my kitchen.
She has given me several others, but in colors that don’t match my kitchen. I have discovered other uses for these! I put one on top of small plates that I put a stack of bowls on in my cupboard….no scratches on my plates!
I nest them between my skillets to keep them from scratching too!
They have been reincarnated into ‘doilies’ to set under a vase of flowers. I have also used them under frozen containers when they are thawing, they absorb the water and I don’t have a little puddle of water on my counter or refrigerator shelf.
I need to have her make a few more in colors to match my bathrooms so I can put them under my soap dispensers, it will keep the area a bit dryer. (We have very hard water, so water spots are very annoying!)
I just purchased more yarn so my dear friend can make a few that are a bit smaller so I can use them as coasters!
I am sure that after I publish this post I will think of another way to use these! What are your thoughts? Can you think of other ways to use these?
Enjoy your Creative Day! ~~Vickie
P.S. The popcorn planter in the picture has tiny sprouts of flowers that I hope will grow into real flowers! My thumbs are not very green!
