I think <a href="http://hyenacart.com/prod_details.php?id=73327&vid=23" target="_blank">this</a> is a great idea!<br><br>
Think of how nice those would be for poopy dipes... especially for a toddler.<br><br>
I wish I hadn't already ordered a million wipes, I would have to try these!!! I think the colors she used are beautiful too.

Those would be super easy to make... Just single crochet a square, I think. Someone craftier than myself could probably write up a pattern, even. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

Those are very cute but my only concern would be if they are too thick. Since my girls are older I never wipe them laying down so I have a harder time getting where I need to be with thick wipes. I bet they could be oh so soft though. I have a soft knit washcloth for me and love it!

I have been going back and forth drooling - the only thing holding me back is that I really don't *need* any and shouldn't spend money on stuff like that right now. It will be a whole other story if I find myself in the market for wipes again. And Susan is such an excellent knitter.

I use a crocheted hemp and wool cloth for my face. Its nice and grippy without being too rough.

I think this is a good idea.<br>
I have bunches of crochet dishcloths - somewhere, I can't see the idea being to much different. And I like the dishcloths.

Huh, I never thought about crocheted wipes. I have crocheted dishcloths/washcloths and even a crocheted scrubby sponge that works awesome for stubborn things. My honorary grandma makes them for me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I've been debating crocheting up some dish towels in the near future when I'm done makeing soakers and stuff for the kids.

Hmmm... my concern is that they might be a bit too thick too. You wouldn't be able to keep very many in a wipes box, as compared to other wipes. Also, speaking as a mum to a girl... There's a lot of "hidden areas" that a thick wipe may not get to...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I just made a bunch last week! I really do like them, and my older kids like using them as washcloths. I use them mostly for wiping faces and hands though, as they're a little bulky for a wipes container. But they are great for scrubbing, and they're really soft too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I can whip out a few in an evening if I'm watching a movie or something <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

Not sure I'd use them for wipes, especially a liquidy yuck since whenever I use a crochet/knitted cloth to wipe up a mess it usually seeps through since it is kinda meshy.<br><br>
But the handmade cloths are dreamy for dishes, cleaning house or cleaning child. And I totally agree with the comment of using it to clean your face. Just not sure I'd use it for poop.

I'm thinking that if you used a different stitch, maybe the afghan stitch, they'd be thinner, and less "meshy" as a pp mentioned. I have tons of cotton yarn at home, I'll make some tonight with the afghan stitch and let y'all know how they come out. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
