Chantal did such a good job on hers! I had to frog mine. :(
I will try it again but yesterday was not a good dishcloth knitting day for me. My scarf is coming along really good so far though.

I am still waiting on pins and needles to see the rest of your new ones. I want to knit those!!!

Liefde en drukkies!

Hi Shirley, I knit for groups that require the squares to be 9X9". How could I adjust this to met their needs? (Squares are sent and sewn together into afghans that are sent to various organizations). with a CO of 50 stitches, I think it's going to be a big square!
