~ My Finished Group Knit-a-Long Picture ~

My pic of Pam's Tulip Dishrag that we knit for our May 2008 Group Knit-a-Long in Rachel's Knitting Room!
This beautiful dishcloth pattern was graciously provided by a wonderful woman, Pam Walker. She is the owner of Knitter's Nest that is located in Cadillac Michigan.

I came across this pattern about 7 years ago and I fell in love with it right away! Unfortunately, when I went to the site later to find it though, it was gone :o( So I set out on a pattern hunt and was finally able to get in contact with Pam through email...PHEW!...cuz for the past few months, I've been really wanting to do something a little different for a KAL and thought that this would be an absolutely perfect pattern to try! I tried to provide some help with the videos and I know that it has been a struggle for some, but I am so proud of the fact that you kept going and pushed yourselves to continue on with it even with your frustration...mind you, it's pretty easy to push yourselves through this pattern as it is such a pretty one!

Also, thank you so much to all our wonderful members who helped out those in need through this one, I truly appreciate it!

Here is the link to this pattern that we have been will also find that Pam has the instructions written out for a matching hanging towel to go with this beautiful dishcloth! What a pretty set that would make! It is from her archived site, and the picture is not viewable, but we'll have the pics from our KAL for it:

And here is Pam's current website:

Thank you, Thank you, Pam for a gorgeous pattern! Much appreciated! I bought myself 3 BIG balls of the cotton twists to be able to knit a whole bunch of these up for the kids' teachers at the end of the school year(which isn't that far away...YIKES!) Beautiful Pattern!
