I really like the idea of crochet dish cloths. My church sells them at our church bazaar during the holiday season and I always make sure I buy several to last me through until the next year. But with this pattern now I can not only crochet some for myself, I can now crochet some for our church bazaar. I do love this site and all it offers.
