    Granny Squre Dishcloths

    So, I was getting bored of my standard dishcloth pattern, and I determined to try out a new one. photo IMG_7145.jpg

    This one, in fact.

    I found that the pattern made a dishcloth that was a little big for my taste, so I went ahead and decreased the number of rows that I finished. That shrunk it down to the perfect size for me.
