Hemp dishcloth

I've become a bit obsessed with hemp. It's such an amazing fiber (like linen), and it's so much easier on the earth than cotton. It's so absorbant!!! Knitting with it is a bit of a pain--makes my hands ache it's so stiff. I wanted to knit one of the linen dishcloths in Mason Dixon Knitting, but decided to use hemp instead:

It's a bit loose, but I guess that in about 10 years and 500 washes this is going to be the best towel I've ever owned!
