Welcome to my new website.  Please check back regularly as I update and make corrections.

Special thanks to my friends
Jean Amundson for her help in test-knitting my designs,
and to my favorite 4-H knitting leader,
Janeen Hills Cleland,
who patiently taught me to knit,
and made all of this possible! ;-)

Happy knitting!

These twelve, original, knitted dishcloth designs
are all about things that you might find in the garden.
Designed with easy knitting in mind, and using only knit and purl stitches,
they create a picture in the middle of the dishcloth,
just as the patterns that I've designed previously do.
