I made a few things and then stopped until 6 years ago when I could no longer be outside during the summer because of my MS. I started to crochet again and have found it very relaxing. I make some gifts but donate every year to two organizations in my town. This is my favorite go-to dishcloth – I never wrote it down before – so hopefully it makes sense.”
Thank you Shirley for joining the Dishcloth-A-Day Challenge.
