hey on the same track as dish cloths i will be sending some goodies for you and the fam with josh when he comes. what colors of cotton yarn do you need? i have gotten lots of comments on your pillowcase bag. i use it all the time. it is my purse and everyone says how cute it is and wonders where i got it. haha i say it is an original and she lives in NZ. i feel very privileged to have such a talented friend. say hi to the girls and yes i guess mr. sew funky too!!!!!!

i have never made a dishcloth but these look like so much fun, but i don't understand the directions. you give directions for a wedge but say knit the whole cloth as one piece. does that mean if you cast on 12 for a wedge, then i would cast on 12X6 (number of wedges to make)? thanks so much for your help.
