Taking Requests

I just wanted to make it known that I am willing to take requests for dishcloth pattern ideas. I am still learning but am willing to try anything at least once. Feel free to post requests here or email me at gimpykatk@aol.com. Please put pattern request in subject line so I can read it right away. And please remember to leave a way foe me to contact you if I am able to create your request.

My camera is not the best so if you make one of the patterns and get a better picture, I'd love to see it and maybe use it as the example photo.

If you are not a knitter and would rather have a finished knitted cloth of any of these patterns I am also glad to knit them up for you. Contact me for prices and shipping, as they may vary depending on the number of cloths ordered.

I have had many comments regarding needle sizes used for my patterns. Unless I specify, feel free to use any size needle you are comfortable with. A picture pattern may show up better with a smaller needle if you are a loose knitter. I am a loose knitter so I tend to us a US 3 or US 4 sized needle. But there is no gauge with a dishcloth and most cloths will use no more that a ball of cotton regardless of needle size.

Thank you for visiting my blog and looking at my first sets of original patterns.

What is the connection between the heart arrangement on the cloth and the name of the pattern?

Janey I couldn't tell your email address to respond, so I hope you check this out here.

My friend Shelly actually pictured this pattern and told me about it. I created it up and knitted it for her, so since it came from her heart, I call it Shelly's heart.

I'm knitting this right now as a Mother's Day gift for my Mom. My name is Michelle (but spelled funny) so Shelley's Heart is perfect. :) Thank you for sharing your talent with the world.

I'm currently knitting this pattern as a square to go on in a memory blanket for a friend who's little girl died at 2 days old. The pattern is beautiful. Thank you for writing it.

My oldest daughter passed away April 24, 2010. I am going to make this cloth in memory of her, one for each of her daughters, and myself. It is beautiful. I will do it in white. Thank you, Dotti

i am a new knitter looking for easy projects to cut my teeth on and i have been looking for a celtic or some type of irish cross and cannot seem to find anything.

Thank you SO much for this pattern.. It was so hard for me to find a cross pattern that I wanted for the special afghan I'm knitting.
There are celtic crosses at digknittydesigns.

I made several of this pattern for our Knights of Columbus Ladies Auxiliary Craft Table. They are so popular, that people are asking me to allow them to order them. They especially liked them in a bright green color. I also made some for family members, who said they are never going to use them because they are so beautiful Thank you for the wonderful pattern
