Dishcloth Frenzy

Dishcloth Frenzy

Some special birthday girl will be getting some super cute dishcloths this weekend!  Why?  Because I was in the dishcloth making mood.

The 3 I made were from www.ravelry.com

They are called, “The Soft Waves – Kitchen Lovelies”  (pictured on the bottom right), “The Sunrise Dishcloth” (in the middle), and my favorite “The Moon Flower Dishcloth” (bottom left).  They are all made from the same skein, a Lily’s Sugar ‘n Cream stripes called Natural Stripes.

All the patterns are free on Ravelry, I will include the “Sunrise” cloth on here, very easy!
