Hello friends, how are you? Well I hope and keeping warm.
Time has certainly flown by these past few weeks and it’s hard to believe we are already half way through February. I must admit though that I am not crying about it as January is my most disliked month of them all. So flat after Christmas, and so long dark and wet here in Wales. Half way through February, days are getting longer and friendly snow drops are cheerfully dancing in the wind in my garden. Altogether a happier month!
It’s also that time again for our monthly installment of dishcloth pattern…
…and after a friendly reader from Germany suggested that I should write the pattern out in both English and German I thought; “What a good idea!”…so here goes:
