Back in August I blogged about some washcloths I knit using a kit from Appalachian Baby. We’ve been using the washcloths at almost every bath time since Dash was born. I even noticed Brian always reaching for these hand knit washcloths first, and when I asked him about it he said he thinks they are the softest. If you missed it, you can read the post here.
