Thanks so much for all of the kind comments about the dishcloths. There are so many neat dishcloth patterns out there and it's an easy, compact project to take anywhere. They make great, inexpensive gifts for friends, too!
Our knitting group actually made quite a few dishcloths last year xxx and made up three baskets of them to be actioned off for a charity. We had a nice phone message at our local yarn shop from someone who bid on one basket and won. She called to thank each one of us by name (we had included knitter name tags on each one) and to tell us they would be put to use in her winter home in Florida.
