Yo My Dishrag Peeps
December 4, 2006
To my fellow Earthlings who have an irrepressible urge and an irrational exuberance for knitting dishrags and other sassy items for kitchen and bath,
G R E E T I N G S:
I have News. THE DISHCLOTH CALENDAR IS ON SALE TODAY! THE DISHCLOTH CALENDAR IS ON SALE TODAY! Janet Nogle has organized the first-ever-that-we-know-of calendar with knitting patterns for dishcloths, washcloths, and other spa and kitchen items. I haven’t seen it yet, but I am so excited I can barely…do the dishes.
To pre-order a calendar, go here and follow Janet’s instructions.
I submitted my humble pattern out of pure stinkin’ vanity and the pride of being asked. Recently, though, I learned that those who contributed designs to the calendar are going to be sharing the proceeds of sale. Oh boy! I love a windfall–and I will be donating my share of this found money to Oliver’s Fund.. Emma and Allan are still raising money for the expensive lift that will enable them to transport Oliver’s heavy electronic wheelchair by car. This added mobility will make the chair–which was purchased with the help of knitting bloggers and blog readers from all over–much more beneficial. Earlier this year, I saw Oliver and his new chair in action. It’s amazing what a 7-year-old can do with a little added horsepower.
Dishcloth Knitters, ACTIVATE!
