I have been knitting again after dropping out for 30 years. Used cotton for a dishcloth for the first time, and after first washing it was all out of shape and not at all attractive. I used the popular cotton yarn at michaels,etc. and followed a pattern on the label. What did I do wrong or is this a common problem with this yarn? Thanks for any help. Ponderosa Lady

(((((((( Yes, it's a common problem. I usually just toss them on my ironing board to do later......sometimes hand blocking will work, too.
