Thursday, March 17th – Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!
On March 17th St. Patick’s Day is celebrated internationally. It originated as a Catholic holiday but now it is more of a celebration of Irish culture. For the non Irish – it’s just another reason to celebrate.
Dorothy Crews is a beginner crocheter who has joined our Dishcloth-a-Day Challenge. Dorothy wrote: “I just learned to crochet this past year, thanks to my sister-in-law from CA. During her visits she helped me “see” the stitches. We found a great yarn shop in Downtown Greensboro and had fun going through the different blends of yarn. She’s a real yarn addict. I am blessed with a talented friend. So thanks Karen for showing me what to do in my few moments of me time!”
Thank you Dorothy for designing this dishcloth. You are living proof that even a beginner can join the challenge. Follow me onto dishcloth #77 and the rest of the story…
