Taking Requests

Hi
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.

I have knit a lot of your patterns but don't understand s/b in the pattern "sunshine makes me happy"

What does the abbreviation s/b mean?

I believe it means "Should Be" so you can know how many stitches you should have at the end of the row.

Awesome Patterns!
