Hi,

I found your pattern on Ravelry and thought it was one of the prettiest cloths I have ever seen! I am a beginner knitter (3 years and counting!) and I found your pattern easy to follow. I put a picture up on Ravelry. I made it in pink as a gift for my mother-in-law and I'll be making a second for my grandmother-in-law. Thanks for providing this pattern for free!
