Well, the members of the Dish Cloth Swap chose their favorites from amongst the nine that I made and now I have to type up the tags and send them off. However, we have someone in the group that is a huge enabler, she is willing to pass on all kinds of new patterns and ideas just for the asking. Well Ellen, you have made Muse ecstatic - she's juggling the colored cotton and making up rhymes and songs every day. As it is my place to keep the peace, I have indulged her and made a practice version of the Mitered Cross Square . This pattern is well worth the donation to Japan's earthquake relief fund. As Ellen tempted us all with a super lovely version of this as a dish cloth, I decided to try my practice square as a dish cloth as well. Ok - it is easy to see that Ellen's is better, but I shall carry on as I begun and make more and then one day mine will hopefully look as nice. This is my first effort and it has not been blocked yet in this picture. It's on the blocking board now. I used US size 4 bamboo needles to make this smaller than a blanket square.

Peace and joy...
