Sand Stitch Dishcloth/ Washcloth

When stressed, I find life is much easier to deal with when yarn is in my hands. Dishcloths and washcloths are a fun and quick project. That keep the hands and head focused on something productive while your world is out of your control. I have a nice collection now in store for sale. Pop on in and grab some handmade goodness. Or grab some gorgeous cotton, linen and bamboo blend yarns to make your own. Cheapest 3 hours of therapy you will ever buy. Email orders very welcome. Let me know your colours and I can put together a dishcloth making package for you.
