I worked this multidirectional dishcloth a little differently than the instructions in the book, but I think it looks ok, is a little easier and faster to me, and considering it's a dishcloth, perfection is not the forte. Anyway this is with something like "Faded Demim" in Sugar 'n Cream yarn, and obviously, one of my favorite dishcloth patterns. It was sent to a lucky exchange receipient, in addition to some of my handpainted cotton and some stationary goodies from Michaels.
In return, she sent me a lovely white butterfly lace dishcloth, a ball-band stitch soap-sack, some handmade lavender soap, sandalwood & rose bath bombs, and some lavender-scented clothespins for drawer & closet freshening. If y'all are interested in joining the exchange, it is totally fun, and the group is "dishclothexchange" on http://groups.yahoo.com.
