Do I have a book for you!
"Dishcloth Diva" by Deb Buckingham features 20 fun-and-easy dishcloth patterns, as well as detailed information about choosing yarn for your dishcloths. And an intro by the famous Kay Gardiner, of Mason-Dixon Knitting fame!
If you're a beginning, or timid knitter, this is a wonderful resource. Even a knitter with the shortest attention span can knit a dishcloth! And if you make a mistake? so what, it's a dishcloth, for heaven's sake!
If you're a little more ambitious, choose one of the patterns and keep on knitting -- long enough to make a scarf, or not quite-so-long, seam the ends, and make a cowl! "Dishcloth Diva" would make an excellent prezzie packaged up with some sticks and string (knitting needles and cotton yarn!).
All of Deb's patterns were extensively tested (some by me!) so they really work. And, Deb's publisher, Cooperative Press has donated a PDF copy of the book for a giveaway. I love PDF patterns and books, no waiting for the UPS delivery!
If you'd like to win a copy of Dishcloth Diva, leave a comment on this post and tell me if you've ever knit a dishcloth. Or wanted to knit a dishcloth. Or wanted to receive a handknit dishcloth!
Giveaway ends Sunday, March 10 at noon MDT. Of course, international entries are welcome! If you're an anonymous or no-reply commenter, please be sure to include contact information!
I think I've used up my year's allocation of exclamation points on this post! But really, I love this book!
