Inspiration in the form of Dishcloths!

 Betsy Q. sent me some lovely new dishcloths.
What is it about dishcloths that makes knitting and crocheting so fun?  
I totally want to do a dish cloth swap.
Because that's what you need to do after you move. 
Get involved in something familiar.  Look what you've done Betsy.....thank you!

So ladies, let's have a vote. 
Anyone up for a dishcloth swap end of August? 
Our family had a cabin in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. Packing it up here, I found a sketch our neighbor did of the CABIN. 
Why didn't I hang this up here, at this house? 
Probably because when my father sold the cabin, this family mourned for it.  We really did. As if it had breath and life itself, which it honestly did.  
It also had bats and bears and tics but none of that mattered.
It was our haven.  Our go to.  Our Fun. 
It is so good to see it again. 

How are YOU?
Are you sweltering?
Are you up for a swap before Labor day?

Fun idea! Have you ever tried the Almost Lost dishcloth pattern? It's a good one. Still cool here, but then folks here start to whine when it hits 80.

I'm in for the swap! I have been thinking that I needed the peace and calm that only comes with knitting a dishcloth. It will be great fun to share your new home in that small way! The sketch of the cabin is lovely and deserves a special place in your new home.

Sweltering? More roasting in our own juices!

I love the drawing of your cabin. I think it should be hung and all the memories will hang with it.

Not up for a swap at this time - but I am glad I found your blog and I will keep visiting it.

The cabin drawing is lovely - please hang it proudly in your new home.

I would like to be included, haven't done a swap of any kind. We have a cottage in northern Wisconsin. I hope our sons and their families have memories of this place like you do the one your family had. It's a beautiful day up north today. The humidity is gone!!

As much as I would love to, I can't. Christmas looms over me like a shadow with its hands on its hips.
