old fashioned dish washer

I unfortunately do not have the luxury of a modern dishwasher. I have to rely on the old fashioned style. Two cycles, wash and dry.

I've made a few of these sets and plan on making a few more. They'll make good Christmas gifts.

These are very cute.. i wonder if i'll ever get myself to start knitting :D

Our dishwasher is our own hands.. :p

Duni said...

Those are fabulous! I love the coffee print! Since we're just two people most days I wash the dishes by hand too!

Nancy Claeys said...

I do like the black/beige/white color combination. Very pretty! And no dishwasher here accept me.

Donna said...

Those look terrific! The color scheme should work for a lot of kitchens.

I have a dishwasher, but still hand wash a lot of items - delicate glassware, pots & pans, baking sheets, measuring cups/spoons, etc.

Sandee said...

Have a fabulous day Ann. My best to Duke. ♥♥♥

I married my dishwasher! :) Great idea for gifts Ann!

Sheryl Hastings said...

Those would make great Christmas gifts, in fact, that set will match my kitchen!

I've always had a dishwasher but I rarely use it. It does come in handy for when we have guests over, but for the two of us, we only use it about once a month. It's just as easy to wash a few dishes a couple times a day.

I don't really like dishwashers for some unknown reason but when I empty mine every morning at look at the sparkling glasses I guess I kinda like it. Now this is gonna sound dumb - but what are those crocheted things in the picture?

You mean you?

We have a dishwasher --but seldom use it… With just the two of us, I keep the dishes washed as they get dirty.. Works for us. BUT--it is nice to have one when we have company or when we want to clean some items which clean better in the dishwasher-like the coffee pot/filter….

Love your set.. What a nice Christmas gift that would be.

Hugs,
Betsy

Great idea and good for you getting organized early for Christmas!

Marg said...

We don't have a dishwasher either, except the Person. Those look like some great presents. Hope you have great evening.

SweetMarie said...

Very cute! I don't use my dishwasher very often, usually just holidays. :)

Molly Smith said...

Love your crocheted work. The pattern is pretty with the yarn you used. You can do everything! I've crocheted just a bit but not good with instructions so could never make these. Very nice, Ann!

Happy Friday, YAY!

Karen Lange said...

My grandmother used to make hanging dish towels and I loved them. I need to make some of my own. Thanks for inspiring me!

Thanks also for stopping at Chatty Crone's blog and commenting. It's great to meet you! :)

These are great! I love the old fashioned way to do dishes... I find it a bit therapeutic (well, I never said I was normal, lol)
Hugs, antonella :-)
