Dishcloth Swap Topic of the Week...

It was a long weekend of driving back and forth to NHIS and I'm tired. Flat out tired. So this will be a short post, but I did want to answer the Fall into Autumn Dishcloth Swap topic of the week, so here we go...

Topic/Question: When you knit or crochet dishclothes, washclothes or face clothes, what do you use? What size needle or hook? Wood? what type? Metal? Plastic? A specific Brand? Why do you love that needle or hook so much? Is there one you are dying to try? Is there a particular yarn you love and use all the time for clothes? What is so special about it?

Answer: Well, I only knit so I'm using needles and my weapon of choice when knitting with dishrag cotton (read: Sugar 'n Cream or Peaches 'n Cream) is wood or bamboo needles and lately its been by beautiful Fiddlesticks needles with the coconut and mother of pearl ends. Love them! The fiddlesticks just glide thru the cotton so easily (sometimes too easily, but that's okay, they are a joy to knit with). The Sugar 'n Cream is a great go-too for cloths... cheap, easy to find, works well!

I wanted to let you know that one of my Pay It Forward Angels, Colleen (the very preggers rock star chick who also needs some crafters to sign up!) and I came up with a button..she did the artwork and I played in Photoshop and have over 20 (yeah, you read correctly) different shapes and sizes for everyone's purposes and you can find them right here!! So...GO....GRAB a few buttons and show the world that we are spreading kindness and love all over the www!!!! (Remember, save button photos to your computer, please).

You are very welcome for the buttons! Do you know who began the Pay It Forward Exchange? I've been trying to find out, but haven't been successful! And, should you have other people who would like to join Pay It Forward, please send them to Colleen, I mistakenly thought she was going to begin much later, but I was WRONG and I've been directing people all over rather than to her. Thanks!!
