A little weirdness...

A few days ago I finished knitting this cheery little dishcloth for our kitchen. It looks great (our kitchen is painted white and the walls are yellow) and it makes me happy every time I look at it. 
Now for the weirdness: I haven't used it yet. I have another (store-bought) dishcloth next to it, which I use for the actual dirty work. When I buy new towels or dishcloths, I have no trouble using them. In fact, I look forward to it. But when I make them I somehow don't want to get them dirty. Ever.

Silly, I know. But there you have it. ;-)



  1. Liebe Silke,

    das ist Kunst.

    Alles Liebe


  2. Oh, Silke, that is not silly. I am the same way. I buy greetings cards, too, that I think are beautiful ~ and I don't use them. I just like looking at them. All that beautiful hard work of creating and then to use it and soil it? NO WAY, Silly Silke. lol

  3. Time to take the plunge...into soapy water I mean. :-))

  4. Yellow is my favourite colour! I'd love to see pictures of your kitchen, maybe you'll show it to us one day?

  5. Not weird -- normal in my eyes!

  6. not weird to me either. it's an art piece!


  7. Hey Silke!
    Such a pretty cloth! I crochet these and give them as gifts. Recently, my sister had a beautiful black casserole that she sat down upon the most colorful cloth and it looked so pretty. Startled, I realized that the colorful cloth was one that I had made and given to her! She says she gets compliments on it all the time. YAY!
