Dishcloth Swap Topic #1

Weekly Topic: Dishrag. Dishcloth. Face cloth. I've seen folks get all fired up in forums when someone refers to their knit or crochet creation as a dishrag, as that's somehow offensive to them! When you're working on yours, what do you call them? Also, is there a difference between a dishrag and a dishcloth? How bout a facecloth? Are they all really the same thing?

Well I must say I would be a little put off by the name "rag" on something I hand knit, LOL!! I usually call them dishcloths. Personally if it were a facecloth I would prefer something softer than the usual 100% cotton used for dishcloths. Something like Cotton Ease would be good for the face. Technically I would say that dishcloths and facecloths are the same thing knit wise, however I would never use one on a dish and then on my face (whether it had gone through the washer already or not), LOL!

I'm reading your post and sitting here with my bottom lip stuck out because I'm pouting. I'm already in 2 swaps so I didn't join the Winter dishcloth swap. I'm missing out on all the fun!
