That is really cute. I may have to harm my husband if he wiped chocolate pudding on that rather than on my $12 flour sack towels. ;)

I am a beginner knitter I find your dish cloth patterns help alot. Got tired of doing scarfs for learning I made this pattern and it came out great. Gonna try the whole set!

I haven't knit in about 45 years. Told my sisters I have forgotten how. I think I will try this simple pattern for a refresher before I begin something more intricate. Thanks for the simplicity.
