I started knitting for the Society in February 2016 and made my first delivery on 2nd March. In exchange for a delivery was more knitting cotton (at my request). Deliveries of finished cloths and simultaneous collections of at first two and later three balls of yarn became a regular event until near the end of July 2016 when the Society said it had enough dishcloths from its team of knitters for the time being. I have asked to be notified when more cloths are required.
Two balls of knitting cotton made five cloths with yarn left over, and three balls made eight cloths with yarn left over. Yarn left over from a previous ball was used to start the next cloth so that none was wasted.
The photographs (in no particular order) show a total of 71 dishcloths made, plus at least another batch of five for which there are no pictures.
|The first five. Two balls. 0+5 =5 cloths|
|Eight. Three balls. 5 + 8 = 13 cloths.|
|Nine. Three balls. 13 + 9 = 22 cloths.|
|Eight. Three balls. 22 + 8 = 30 cloths.|
|Eight. Three balls. 30 + 8 = 38 cloths.|
|Eight. Three balls. 38+ 8 = 46 cloths.|
|Eight. Three balls. 46 + 8 = 54.|
|Nine. Three balls. 54 + 9 = 63.|
|The final eight. Three balls. 63 + 8 = 71.|
