Thank you all for your replies. My husband has taken a photograph of the dishcloth, but I haven't got it on to my computer yet. Once I do that, I'll see about posting it to the forum.
I also think it looks too pretty to be used as a dishcloth or a washcloth. It has also turned out quite small, so I would agree with the idea of using it as a doily. I have sewn up the hole, but left it so that the stitches can be removed easily as I think it looks all right a a doily with a hole.
Biztec, what part of Northern Ireland is your family from? I am in County Antrim, but grew up in County Armagh. You will receive a warm welcome if you come visiting this wee country of our's!
