Schoolhouse Wash-Cloth


Welcome to Fall Bliss week,

I am busy cozying up my home. I always crave the color red in the fall. I do not have a lot of it, it seem to strong for my home but in the fall I am pulling it out what I have. Dear Alicecommented on mysmelly sponge post, how one  could write on such a subject and make pretty was beyond her. Well I am attempting to do it again Alice  ;-) I have to thank everyone who commented on my last post. I am putting my sponge in the dishwasher about every 3 days. I also try to nuked it once a day. But I am still playing with what will work best for me. I also decided to use my sponge for only scrubbing and use washclothes instead for general cleaning. But I only had one, so I have been knitting away. I have knitted several and want to knit some more. (But now I am knitting a shawl, so soon I will get back to the washcloths )

Being fall I need some fall inspired washclothes. I had seen this pattern for little house clothand knitted it up but I was not happy with it. So as usually I tweaked the pattern. I used Lions 100 % cotton yarn in poppy red. I see Debbieloves the same color.


You must have a look at Dollie Dille's wonkey halloween bags !!!!

Also there is a wonderful list of favorite fall things, including a yummy recipe for cranberry orange muffins over at Aubern'e Ancalimon

Red is a fun color to be using around the house, thanks for sharing your lovely pattern too.

We added a little Autumn Bliss on our blog today and will post a bit more later in the week for you. Off to see what the others have been up to with their celebration of Autumn.

What a lovely washcloth, I love the poppy red color and the overall design. Very well done!

Autumn Bliss week is fun already. Thank you for the links to the fun ideas as well as to my own blog.


Hi, It turned out great. I need to finish this scarf so I can start some washcloths. Love, Mom


Beautiful job Clarice! It really looks great in the poppy red. And how neat that we were both unknowingly working on the same project :)
