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?
I call them dishcloths - certainly not rags. I think of ripped up material as rags, certainly not something I've spent some creative time completing! Facecloths are softer (or should be) than dishcloths but could be made from the same pattern, in my opinion.
