We are excited to have Karen Daniel join the Dishcloth-a-Day Challenge.  Karen wrote:  “My son plays Pokemon games on his DS gameboy and he said this looks like the pattern on the body of “Poliwhirl” so that’s how it gets its name. This is my third submission and I love the dishcloth challenge and seeing everyone else’s patterns”.
Thank you for joining us Karen.  Follow me onto dishcloth #122 and the rest of the story…
