Dishcloth Adventure of Knit Stitches

Cascading Leaves Dishcloth

I finished the Cascading Leaves Dishcloth last night. And I thought it might be a good time to post it since it’s too cold outside for me to do any activities.

I’m having some cold weather fun by creating some dishcloths for this  series of Dichscloth Adventure of Knit Stitches.

As you may already know I don’t like to toot my horn or bore you with writing a book on my blog everytime I post a pattern.

So here it is right up front.
