2 dishcloths done!

I was lucky enough to be able to test knit these two wonderful dishcloths designed by the wonderful and amazing Stephanie McElheran. Her website is http://loomydishcloths.wordpress.com/
She will let everyone know when they are available. This first cloth is called Arabian Nights. It is wonderful and I'm a huge fan of horses so doing this cloth was great for me. I will be making LOTS more. I fell in love with the colors of this yarn and thought it would be great for this. The camera did ok at capturing the image but, it really does show up a lot better in person. Maybe a solid color would have been better for pictures. I know everyone will want this pattern!

Here is another great design. It is a Daschund Dishcloth! I have a mini doxie so this was a lot of fun to do. I know of several people that have doxie's that will be getting a dishcloth of this pattern for Christmas!
Close Up shot of the Doxie! Hope you all enjoy this and when Stephanie gets these onto her website rush over there to get them both! They are wonderful and I'm sure you will fall in love just like I did. We have such great designers in our looming community and I'm so happy to be chosen by them to test knit some for them! I Love doing dish cloths!

Very nice cloth, Lisa! At first I thought it was an "illusion knit" pattern like the heart bag on my site, but then I realized that it couldn't be because it's all one color - duh! Neat pattern - I wonder if the design would show up more with non-variegated yarn.

I have the wesite listed on the post. Its by Stephany at loomy dishcloths! She is WONDERFUL!! She however is on vacation and I haven't seen it up loaded yet. She will have it there soon I'm sure. I get to test knit for 2 WONDERFUL designers!

The horses dishcloth does show up better in 1 color. Stephanie quickly did it up and its shown on a couple groups in reverly and she should have it up soon for sale or free. Not sure which she will choose.
