I am very happy and very excited. Through the thoroughly entertaining Mason-Dixon Knitting blog, I found out that there is a calendar of dishcloth designs being sold for $16.00 and may I just say What a bargain! The 2010 Dishcloth Calendar is called Gifts from the Heart ... Back to Basics and it is chock full of the cutest things to make -- 38 projects by terrific designers. In fact, the fantabulous Per Orla dishcloth in the calendar was designed by Kay Gardiner of Mason-Dixon.
I downloaded my copy and immediately started the Purly Waffle Cloth; I intend to take it as a hostess gift for a friend's dinner next weekend. I also have a friend whose baby is due in January and I'm planning to make the Kennel Club Pup Bib for her expected baby boy. Also, my youngest daughter recently mentioned that she needs a bag holder for plastic shopping bags and there is just the thing in the calendar called the Aloha Sack Sock. So there are all kinds of great bonus designs in addition to the dishcloths. I love having these smaller projects to work on when I can't make myself pick up the larger ones already going. Sometimes you just gotta have a little instant gratification!
