Cloth # 1

About this line of cloths

I'm in need of cloths, not fancy, pretty "don't use" type cloths, but "I live with an auto mechanic" type cloths ; )
My guys are the kind who tend to get their fingers dirty ( to say the least ). They don't like to use girlie things, cloths included.
I see naming patterns as the hard part of making them. So these are going to be numbered. Each one will be suited to whatever need be around here. I hope you find some of them if not beautiful, useful.
Here's the first





This cloth was made with my guys in mind. Not fancy or lacy, dark colored to hide stains, with two multi twisted cables to aid scrubbing power. Very easy and quick knit.
