It's a wash

I finally got around to weaving in ends and blocking the wash clothes I made a while back. I realized I hadn't shared any decent pics of these

The first up with the leaf lace cloth - a cute little free pattern.
I used a larger needle that the pattern called for, so I dropped a leaf repeat, so mine aren't quite square, but I like them anyway.

There's not pattern for second set
 I just cast on 52 stitches and made mitred squares, alternating colours every other row.

These have been put away in the Christmas box, and will be paired with some homemade soap come the holiday season.

I love these types of wash cloths!
They are the only kind I like using now.
Nice design =)

The washcloths are so pretty and will make great gifts with delicious smelling soaps. Very nice!
