Dishcloth Refresh Rehash

"All handknit dishcloths go to heaven. They are all good." says Ann from Mason Dixon Knitting. But time, and people always spilling things on counters, take their toll on a dishcloth. A fresh one is a good thing!

Seventeen lucky gals finished up the fun exchange with the Yarn & Honey shop in Great Falls last week. Seems like everyone on both ends of the mail route enjoyed the process. Some traveled across several state lines (California and New Jersey!). Some were more elaborate than others. All were a perfect handmade treat for an unknown knitter who appreciates the virtues of a sturdy handknit dishcloth. We decided to wrap each one with its note from the maker so everyone got a little May present. And we've seen a couple of the ones we got from Great Falls opened and happily received.... thanks to everyone who was part of this across-the-miles exchange!

All the dishcloths inspired Sue to try out the smaller version of Ball Band Dishcloth over the Memorial Day weekend. (small version mods:  cast on 33 and knit 9 rows of 'brick' sections) Great size, good level of "scrubbiness", and fun to make! Rowan Handknit Cotton is perfect for these. Find your leftovers, top them off with a couple new shades, and play with colors.
