We Believe...

..that the solution to inequality, pain, suffering, and lack in the world is ‘those that have’ sharing willingly from the heart with ‘those that have not’ who are sick and/or needy.

Warm clothing and bedding for babies, quilts for the aged or ill, books for the disadvantaged, essentials and household goods for those who have lost everything in floods, house fires, or due to job loss; these are just some of the need we assist with. You can help.

Relief Share volunteer makes beautiful dishcloths for the sick and needy.

By

We were so thrilled to get a wonderful donation this week from Carolyn J. She hand made 15 gorgeous cotton washcloths and send them along with a note, letting us know she used a washable and dryable yarn to make them. She even washed them in Dreft before she sent them to us to donate out to the sick and needy we serve.

One of the patterns she used is this one. We actually use this pattern a lot.

Grandmother’s Favorite Dishcloth
Designer: Unknown
Rating: Easy
Materials: Sugar and Cream yarn; Size 6 or 7 needles (US)

Instructions:
Cast on 4 stitches
Row 1: Knit 4
Row 2: Knit 2, yarn over, knit across the row. Repeat Row 2 until you have 44 stitches on the needle.
Knit 1, Knit 2 together, yarn over, knit 2 together, knit to the end of the row.

Repeat Row 3 until you have 4 stitches on the needle. You can now either bind off or do a round of single crochet and make a little loop of chain stitches in one corner so you can hang the cloth to dry when you are finished using it.

A huge thank you to Carolyn, we sure appreciate you!
